WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Ashley Barlow scored 19 of her career-high 22 points in the second half and No. 16 Notre Dame rallied to beat Purdue 61-48 on Saturday.

Charel Allen scored 10 points and Lindsay Schrader added eight points and 10 rebounds for the Irish (8-1).

Danielle Campbell had 13 points, seven rebounds and six blocks for Purdue (3-5), but she was 5- for-13 from the field. Kalika France scored 11 points and Lakisha Freeman had five points and 11 rebounds.

Notre Dame won its sixth straight and claimed its first win over the Boilermakers in nine tries at Mackey Arena. The Irish shot 52 percent from the field in the second half, while the Boilermakers shot just 26 percent.

Purdue has lost five of its past six, including all three matchups with ranked teams.

Purdue led 36-32 early in the second half before Barlow made back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Irish a 38-36 edge with 12:07 to play.

Barlow made another 3-pointer to give Notre Dame a 47-41 lead, then Devereaux Peters scored on a putback to make it 49-41 with 5:46 to play. The Irish led by at least six points the rest of the way.

Notre Dame led 15-14 before Purdue went on a 7-0 run, highlighted by a 3-pointer from France, to take a 21-15 lead with 4:48 left in the first half. The Boilermakers led 25-20 at halftime, despite shooting 36 percent from the field. The Boilermakers held Notre Dame to 35 percent shooting in the first 20 minutes.

POST GAME NOTES: Notre Dame picks up its first win in 10 career visits to Purdue's Mackey Arena; Illinois' Assembly Hall and LSU's Pete Maravich Assembly Center are the only current arenas where the Irish have never won (minimum of two games played) ... the Irish stretch their winning streak to six games, matching their longest success runs in the past two seasons (six wins to open the 2005-06 season; six wins from Feb. 4-21, 2007) ... Notre Dame posts back-to-back series wins over Purdue for the second time in the 21-game rivalry, duplicating the feat it originally pulled off during the 2000-01 national championship season (regular season and NCAA title game wins) ... for the second consecutive meeting, the Irish held the Boilermakers to their lowest offensive output in the series, trumping last year's 67-58 win with Saturday's 61-48 conquest ... Notre Dame earns its ninth win in the past 13 games against Big Ten Conference schools and sweeps a pair from that league this season (also defeated Michigan, 77-46 on Dec. 2 at the Joyce Center) ... the Irish now have held seven of their nine opponents to fewer than 60 points (five to 50 or less) and are an amazing 175-10 (.946) during the past 13 seasons (1995-96 to present) when they hold an opponent below 60 points ... Notre Dame now has won nine of its last 12 games against in-state opponents, with Saturday's game at Purdue marking the first of three in a row for the Irish against Indiana schools ... for the second time all season (first since WKU on Nov. 13), Notre Dame had a negative assist/turnover ratio with 15 assists and a season-high 18 turnovers ... the Irish trailed at halftime for only the second time this year (also 38-32 at #3 Maryland on Nov. 16) ... Notre Dame was held to a season-low 20 points in the first half ... the Irish registered double-digit steals for the sixth consecutive game and seventh time this year ... Notre Dame played the 900th game in program history on Saturday, improving to 621-279 (.690) in less than 31 seasons ... sophomore guard Ashley Barlow scored a career-high 22 points, one more than her previous best that she set on two occasions (most recently at DePaul on Feb. 26, 2007) ... Barlow's 22 points also were the most by an Irish player this season ... in addition, Barlow's five steals were one shy of her career high, set against Western Michigan on Nov. 19, 2006 ... junior guard Lindsay Schrader posted her second consecutive double-digit rebounding night after a 12-board effort Wednesday at Bowling Green ... freshman guard Brittany Mallory dished out a season-high four assists, one more than her previous best against Canisius on Nov. 27.
