#2 Notre Dame women handle St John's but Turner injured

Posted:

The 2nd ranked Notre Dame women's basketball team was looking to go 5-and-0 in the Big East as the Irish brought in St John's Monday.

Skylar Diggins scored 18 points, Natalie Achonwa had 16 points and 12 rebounds for her 10th double-double of the season and No. 2 Notre Dame beat 74-50 St. John's on Sunday.
   The All-American penetrated at will. When she wasn't scoring on fast breaks, she was hitting pull-up jumpers or feeding forward Achonwa for easy layups.
   St. John's (9-7, 3-1 Big East) was led by Nadirah McKenith with 15 points.  The Fighting Irish took a 39-25 halftime lead on a drive through traffic by Diggins as the clock expired.
   Notre Dame (16-1, 5-0) outrebounded St. John's 48-22 and outscored the Red Storm 38-24 in the paint.

Notre Dame senior reserve Kaila Turner left the game with a knee injury with 5:32 left to play in the game, falling to the ground and writhing in agony after she hit a 3-pointer. She was expected to have an MRI Monday morning.  Coach Muffet McGraw said after the game, she anticipates losing Turner for at least 3-4 weeks, pending MRI results.
