Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Skylar Diggins scored 17 of her 22 points in the first half and added six assists to lead Notre Dame (No. 10 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) to an 80-58 win over Georgetown (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) on Tuesday night.

Natalie Novosel added 19 points, Brittany Mallory had 14, and Devereaux Peters pulled down 12 rebounds for the Fighting Irish (16-4, 5-1 Big East).

Sugar Rodgers had 15 points and six rebounds, and Rubylee Wright added 13 points and six assists for the Hoyas (14-5, 2-3).

Notre Dame finished the first half on an 11-2 run and went into the locker room with a 45-33 lead. Georgetown left six points on the board as the Hoyas missed the front-end of the bonus on three straight trips to the line in last few minutes of the half.

Georgetown's full-court press forced the Irish into three quick turnovers early in the second half before Novosel stole the ball for a layup that put the Irish up 59-42 with 14:44 to play.
