    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Ashley Barlow scored 18 points, Charel Allen added 17 and Notre Dame (No. 22 AP/No. 23 ESPN/USA Today) used a pressing defense to open a big first-half lead and beat Canisius 93-47 on Tuesday night.

    The Fighting Irish (5-1) forced 29 turnovers and held the Golden Griffins (3-2) to a season-low 34 percent shooting. The Irish also outscored Canisius 50-12 inside and had a 46-28 rebounding edge.

    Devereaux Peters added 12 points and Lindsay Schrader and Brittany Mallory added 10 points each for the Irish, who shot 51 percent. Laura Buetow and Amanda Cavo led Canisius with 10 points each.

    After the Irish quickly took an 8-0 lead, the Golden Griffins answered with an 8-0 run of their own. But they couldn't keep up when the Irish began pressing full court. The first trip down the court, Micayla Drysdale missed a 3-pointer she put up just as the shot clock expired.

    The Irish then went on a 25-4 run, with seven Irish players scoring. During one 5-minute scoreless drought, the Griffins turned the ball over seven times on nine possessions, including three travel calls. Canisius only got off two shots during that spurt and one of them was blocked by Erica Williamson.

    The Irish forced 18 turnovers in the first half, including 11 steals, to open a 49-22 halftime lead. Notre Dame won its third straight game by at least 30 points, the first time that's happened since January 1999.
