SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Jacqueline Batteast had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Notre Dame forced Miami into a season-high 37 turnovers and beat the 21st-ranked Hurricanes 93-58 Wednesday night.

Courtney LaVere added 13 points as all 12 Irish players scored. Notre Dame's reserves outscored Miami's 40-2 as the Irish shot 58 percent en route to scoring their most points since a 107-65 win over Cleveland State in the opener of last season.

It was the worst loss for the Hurricanes since they were beaten 96-50 by top-ranked Connecticut two years ago.

Notre Dame (18-8, 11-3 Big East), which stretched its home winning streak to 17 games, clinched a first-round bye in the conference tournament. The Hurricanes (20-5, 9-5), swept by the Irish this season, had won four straight games.

Batteast had her ninth double-double of this season. Megan Duffy and Monique Hernandez added 10 points each for the Irish.

Tamara James led the Hurricanes with 17 points and Yalonda McCormick added 16.

Chanivia Broussard, who turned the ball over 13 times, had 14 points. McCormick turned the ball over 10 times.

Batteast, who had 13 points and seven rebounds in the first half, hit a pair of free throws and a 3-pointer to ignite a 13-2 Irish run in the first half that broke the game open. She later hit a pair of free throws with 3:33 left in the first half to give the Irish a 34-24 lead. The Hurricanes never got any closer than 10 points thereafter.

Miami, which held Seton Hall to 43 points in a victory Saturday, gave up 45 in the first half alone against the Irish. The Hurricanes had 19 turnovers in the half and trailed 45-29 at the break.

 

 

The Irish have won five straight against ranked teams to improve to 6-3 against them.
