Irish Roll to 91-35 Victory over Seton Hall

56-Point Margin is Second Largest in School History

Box Score

NOTRE DAME, Ind. ---- Notre Dame took its frustration of losing at Villanova on Wednesday night out on Seton Hall this afternoon as the Irish rolled to a 91-35 victory over the Pirates. Sheila McMillen led three Notre Dame players in double figures as she finished with a game-high 24 points.

The 56-point margin of victory was the second largest in school history and marked the second straight home game that the Irish beat its opponent by 56 points or more. Last Saturday against Providence, Notre Dame recorded a 109-50 win over the Friars.

The 35 points were the second fewest allowed by a Notre Dame team and the second fewest scored by an opposing team at the Joyce Center.

Seton Hall scored just 13 second-half points and shot just 19.4 percent from the field while committing 26 turnovers. The Irish shot a sizzling 55.7 percent from the field as Notre Dame hit 34-61.

After falling behind 4-0 to start the contest, Seton Hall went up 5-4 at 18:42, but then the Irish went on a 37-9 run to open up a 28-point lead with 4:15 remaining in the contest.

Notre Dame led 49-22 at the half. Seton Hall went nearly 10 minutes without a basket in the second half. Christine Koren's scored a three-pointer to give the Pirates their 29th point of the contest with 15:33 remaining, but then Seton Hall did not score again until 5:38 as the Irish went on a 24-0 run.

With the victory, Notre Dame improves to 14-6 on the year and 8-4 in the BIG EAST, while Seton Hall falls to 5-14 and 3-8.

Ruth Riley finished with 14 points and Julie Henderson added a season-high 11 points. Mollie Peirick dished off nine assists to move up to third on the all-time assist list with 561.

No Seton Hall player scored in double figures in the game.
