Notre Dame women finish season unbeaten, down NC State

RALEIGH, N.C. – Natalie Achonwa scored 19 points and No. 2 Notre Dame polished off a perfect regular season by beating No. 13 North Carolina State 84-60 on Sunday.

Jewell Loyd added 18 points for the Irish (29-0, 16-0).

They shot 56 percent and led by 30 after an overwhelming second-half run helped them cap the first undefeated regular season for an Atlantic Coast Conference school since the 2006-07 Duke team.

Freshman Miah Spencer had a season-high 18 points for the Wolfpack (24-6, 11-5).

They missed 10 consecutive shots and went scoreless for 7 1/2 minutes while the Irish turned a tight game into yet another blowout. Kayla McBride added 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting for Notre Dame, which in an 11-day span beat each of the four of the North Carolina-based ACC schools by double figures – and three were in the top 15 at the time.
