Ruth Riley scored 13 points for the Irish.

Danielle Green and Ruth Riley each scored 13 points, while Sheila McMillen added 11 as the Irish improved to 15-7 overall and 9-5 in the BIG EAST. Riley also had a game-high 10 rebounds in the contest for her sixth double-double of the season.

Notre Dame shot 52.9 percent from the field and used a strong defensive performance that limited St. John's to 31.5 percent accuracy as the Red Storm converted just 17 of 54 field goal attempts.

Niele Ivey, who has started the last seven games for the Irish, went down with a hip pointer three minutes into the game. Her status for Sunday's game (February 15) against Pittsburgh is doubtful.

Notre Dame never trailed in the contest and built a 10-point lead early on a Green jumper with 12:14 remaining in the first half. St. John's, however, cut the deficit to four, 18-14 when LaTricia Gunnells drove the length of the court for a layup with 10:22 left to play before intermission. That was as close as the Red Storm got as Notre Dame used a 19-4 run to close out the first half as the Irish took a 37-18 lead into the lockerroom.

The Irish did not let up in the second half and led by as many as 36 points.

Senior guard Mollie Peirick, who started the night third on the all-time Notre Dame assist list, finished the game with 10 assists to move ahead of Karen Robinson (1987-90) and into second on the all-time Irish assist with 580 assists.

St. John's, which fell to 5-17 and 3-11 in the BIG EAST, had only one player in double figures as Ebony Dickinson finished with 11 points. The Red DStorm also finished with 27 turnovers.
