    Williamson nets 16 as Notre Dame holds on for sixth win in seventh game

    EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Erica Williamson tied a career-high with 16 points and added eight rebounds to help No. 14 Notre Dame beat DePaul 66-64 on Sunday.

    Charel Allen had 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the Irish (21-6, 9-4 Big East), who has won six of seven.

    Lindsay Schrader scored 11 while Ashley Barlow added 10.

    Allie Quigley had 21 points, six rebounds and seven turnovers for DePaul (18-8, 7-6), which shot 39.3 percent (24-of-61) after hitting a season-high 60 percent in a 81-80 win over the Irish in South Bend on January 22.

    Freshman Felicia Chester had a career-high 14 points and seven rebounds, and Caprice Smith added 10 points, eight rebounds and four steals.

    Trailing 66-64 after Allen's free throw with 11.5 seconds left, China Threatt passed up a wide-open layup and the Blue Demons were unable to get a shot off.

    DePaul was down 64-59 with 1:21 left before Deirdre Naughton hit a 3-pointer and a jumper that brought the Blue Demons to 65-64 with 12.6 remaining. Allen made one of two free throws.

    Notre Dame led 39-32 at the break, but DePaul used a 12-2 run to start the second half to take a 44-41 lead. The Irish answered with an 11-4 spurt to regain a 52-48 lead with 11:22 left.
