Notre Dame women keep on winning

BOSTON – Kayla McBride scored 21 points, Jewell Loyd 18 and No. 2 Notre Dame coasted to an 82-61 win over Boston College Thursday night, giving the Irish their best start in school history.

Notre Dame (24-0 11-0 ACC) remains one of just two unbeaten women's teams in the country along with top-ranked Connecticut. The start surpasses the season-opening 23 straight wins by the 2000-01 team that went on to win the school’s first national championship.

Kat Cooper led Boston College (12-13, 3-9) with 13 points, and Katie Zenevitch had 12 with eight rebounds. The Eagles have lost seven of eight.

BC’s leading scorer Kristen Doherty was out for precautionary reasons with concussion symptoms.

Notre Dame is ranked second – behind UConn – in the Top 25 for the eighth consecutive week.
