No. 3 Notre Dame clamped down in the fourth quarter against Pittsburgh to give coach Muffet McGraw her 800th victory.
Brianna Turner scored 20 points in Notre Dame's 65-55 victory Sunday.
''Down the stretch we wanted to go to the veterans,'' McGraw said. ''We got Brianna and Madison (Cable) to the free throw line, which was about the only way we could score.''
McGraw became the 10th coach to reach 800 victories and the sixth-fastest to accomplish the feat. She joined Connecticut's Geno Auriemma, Tennessee's Pat Summitt, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina's Dean Smith as the only coaches in men's or women's Division I history to have 800 wins, seven Final Four trips and five championship-game appearances.
