Jewell Loyd scored 23 points, Kayla McBride added 18 and second-ranked Notre Dame opened a 33-point halftime lead Sunday en route to a 101-64 victory over Syracuse to improve to 23-0, matching the best start in school history.
With three All-American caliber-players, it's no surprise Notre Dame is unbeaten. But that's not all the Irish have, thanks to players such as Michaela Mabrey, a Jersey girl who brings brutal honesty and clutch 3-point shooting off the bench.
Kayla McBride scored 15 points and Taya Reimer added 14 to lead No. 5 Notre Dame's 76-54 win over Penn on Saturday, the first time a top five women's team had played at the Palestra since Connecticut faced Saint Joseph's a decade ago.
