    No. 20 Notre Dame uses pivotal 21-0 run to drop Cincy

    CINCINNATI (AP) -- Charel Allen scored 16 points Saturday and led a pivotal run that swept No. 20 Notre Dame to 73-41 victory over Cincinnati.

    Freshman Devereaux Peters scored 12 points as a reserve, and Tulyah Gaines and Ashley Barlow each added 11 to help Notre Dame (17-5, 5-3 Big East) get back-to-back wins after consecutive losses.

    Jill Stephens scored 14 points, and Kahla Roudebush had 11 for Cincinnati (10-11, 1-8), which has lost seven in a row and eight of its last nine.

    Allen scored on a pull-up jumper, then stole the ball and fed Gaines for a layup to spark a 21-0 run that started late in the first half and continued after halftime. The run put Notre Dame in control at 38-26.

    Roudebush scored four points on a pair of pull-up jumpers during a 9-0 Cincinnati run that gave the Bearcats their biggest lead, 26-17. Gains scored four points in a 9-0 Notre Dame spurt that closed the half and tied it at 26.

    Cincinnati missed its first five shots of the second half and committed eight turnovers while Notre Dame completed its decisive run. Cincinnati didn't score in the first seven minutes of the second half.
