    Seven Players Score in Double Figures as Irish Beat Orangewomen

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Senior forward Rosanne Bohman scored 16 points to lead seven Notre Dame players in double figures as the 15th-ranked Irish beat Syracuse 90-73 in a Big East contest at the Joyce Center. It was the 10th straight win for Notre Dame, its longest win streak since the 1990-91 season as the Irish improved to 20-4 and 12-0 in the Big East.

    The Irish reached the 20-win plateau for the fourth straight year and the 12th time in its 20-year history.

    Bohman also grabbed a game-high tying nine rebounds in the contest. Also in double figures for Notre Dame were Mollie Peirick (15 points); Katryna Gaither (14); Beth Morgan, Sheila McMillen and Kari Hutchinson (11) and Jeannine Augustin, who chipped in 10. Hutchinson's 11 points tied her career-high.

    Syracuse was led by Raquel Nurse and Teakyta Barnes who each scored a game-high 18 points. Paula Moore added 15 for the Orangewomen, while Carmen Glover netted 13. Glover also had nine rebounds in the game.

    Notre Dame shot 54.7 percent from the field. The Irish hit seven of their 18 three-point attempts, while Syracuse was just three of 11 from three-point range.

    Notre Dame never trailed in the contest and led by as many as 24 points on several occasions in the second half.

    Augustin finished with a game-high nine assists in the game and played 36 minutes in the contest.

    With the loss, Syracuse drops to 5-15 and 3-9 in the league.

    Notre Dame returns to action on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 3 p.m. when the Irish travel to top-ranked Connecticut to face the undefeated Huskies at the Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Conn.
