Women's Basketball Beats Premier All-Stars 91-56 In Exhibition Game

Nov. 6, 2000

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Six players scored in doubles figures, including all five starters, to pace the Notre Dame women's basketball team to a 91-56 win over the Premier All-Stars in an exhibition game on Sunday at the Joyce Center. Irish freshman Jeneka Joyce and All-Star Joni O'Connell led all scorers with 16 points. The Irish led 47-29 at halftime before opening the second half with a 22-9 run in the first seven minutes to build a 69-37 lead. The Premier All-Stars never got closer than 30 points in the loss.

The exhibition was the first of two preseason games for the Irish, who play the Finnish Select team on Nov. 14, in their second exhibition game. Notre Dame opens its season at Valparaiso on Fri., Nov. 17.

Senior All-America center Ruth Riley fueled the Irish second-half spurt with 10 of her 12 points during the run. Seniors Kelley Siemon (14) and Niele Ivey (12), junior Ericka Haney (15) and sophomore Alicia Ratay (10) also added double-figure scoring. Lisa Cline chipped in 15 for the All-Stars.

The Irish built a 22-8 lead at 12:55 of the first half before the All-Stars pulled within four points at 24-20. Notre Dame then eased away once again to take a 47-20 halftime advantage.
