Irish Rout Huskies

December 12, 2004|From Associated Press

Notre Dame's one-two inside punch of Crystal Erwin and Jacqueline Batteast was too much for Washington at South Bend, Ind.

Erwin made all nine of her shots for a career-high 24 points and Jacqueline Batteast had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead the seventh-ranked Irish to a 72-58 victory Saturday.

Notre Dame outrebounded the Huskies, 38-28.

The Irish (9-1) opened the game by making their first five shots and were in control throughout, shooting 60% while holding the Huskies (4-4) to 34% shooting.


No. 6 Baylor 91, Penn State 70 -- The Bears (7-1) opened the second half at Waco, Texas, with a 15-2 run, and led the Lions (4-4) by 37 points when the reserves came in for the last nine minutes.

No. 10 Ohio State 86, Nebraska 61 -- The Cornhuskers (6-3) cut the lead to nine points with less than seven minutes left at Columbus, Ohio, but the Buckeyes (8-1) went inside to Jessica Davenport, their 6-foot-4 center, for bank shots on the next two possessions to pull away for their fifth victory in a row.

No. 16 Minnesota 69, Santa Clara 42 -- At Santa Clara, the Golden Gophers (8-1) held the Broncos (3-4) to their season low in points and shooting percentage (29%) in winning their seventh in a row. Santa Clara was averaging a West Coast Conference-best 73 points.

Utah 85, No. 23 Texas Christian 72 -- The Utes (7-2) made nine free throws in the last 1:33 to clinch the upset over the Horned Frogs (7-3) at Salt Lake City. Utah's Lana Sitterud made seven three-point baskets and scored 27 points.
