    BOSTON -- Becca Bruszewski scored 18 points to lead six players in double figures and No. 15 Notre Dame shot 65 percent from the field to cruise to a 102-54 win over Boston College on Sunday.

    Brittany Mallory had 14 points for Notre Dame (3-0). Lindsay Schrader and Erica Solomon scored 13 apiece. Ashley Barlow and Erica Williamson each finished with 10.

    Carolyn Swords led the Eagles (3-1) with 16 points and seven rebounds. It was the first time the Eagles allowed 100 points since losing to Providence 103-71 on Jan. 23, 1993.

    Notre Dame led 49-25 at halftime and never had its lead fall below 20 points in the second half.

    The Irish used an 8-0 run early in the contest to open their first double-digit lead of the game (20-10) on Bruszewski's jumper. They closed the first half by outscoring the Eagles, 15-3, over the final 4:13. Mallory scored five points and Williamson had a pair of baskets in the run as Notre Dame used a tight defense on the perimeter that lead to a number turnovers and easy transition baskets.

    The Irish shot 59 percent in the opening 20 minutes. BC committed 17 of its 28 turnovers in opening half.
