Notre Dame 77, Georgia Tech 54

ATLANTA -- Arike Ogunbowale scored 25 points, Jackie Young added 14 and No. 2 Notre Dame had no trouble winning its eighth straight game with a 77-54 victory Sunday over Georgia Tech.

Despite injuries reducing their roster to seven scholarship players and three walk-ons, the Fighting Irish (15-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) used a dominant inside game to put Georgia Tech away early with a 30-point halftime lead.

Kaylan Pugh had 17 points and Francesca Pan scored 11, but they were the only Yellow Jackets to finish in double figures. Georgia Tech (12-5, 1-3) gave itself no chance, missing 22 of their first 27 shots from the field and looking nothing like the team that played No. 3 Louisville tough in a narrow home loss Dec. 28.

Jessica Shepard added 12 points and Kristina Nelson 10 for the Irish. Marina Mabrey was coming off two straight 20-point games for the Irish but she finished with just four points.

Notre Dame showed why it continues to be one of the nation's most dominant programs as it tries to set the ACC record of sweeping the league regular season and tournament titles in five straight years.

Ogunbowale did as she pleased in the paint and on the perimeter, finishing with her 12th game of at least 20 points, most in the ACC.
