Notre Dame Downs South Florida 73-50

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Danielle Green and Mollie Peirick combined for 35 points to lead Notre Dame to its second straight win as the Irish posted a 73-50 win over visiting South Florida in the first-ever meeting between the two teams.

Green led the Irish in both scoring and rebounding as she tossed in a 18 points and grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds. Peirick tied her season-high as she added 17 points. They were the only two players in double figures for Notre Dame which won its second straight game and improved to 5-4 on the season.

Every Irish player who played in the game scored. Junior guard Sheila McMillen missed the contest with a hip flexor suffered in practice prior to the Purdue game on Wednesday night.

Freshman Ruth Riley made her third straight start and had another outstanding game as she scored five points, grabbed a career-best 10 rebounds and made a personal best seven blocks, one shy of the school record.

Notre Dame now takes a 15-day break for exams and Christmas and does not play again until December 28 when it hosts San Francisco.

The Irish held South Florida to just 15 field goals and 31.3 percent shooting from the field as the Bulls also committed 35 turnovers. South Florida was just three-of-18 from the field (16.7 percent) in the first half and did not score a basket until the 11:26 mark of the first half.

With the loss, South Florida drops to 3-5 on the season.
