Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Jan. 27, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Notre Dame had just won a close game on the road to remain unbeaten, but Irish coach Muffet McGraw was still disappointed.

That's because second-ranked Notre Dame lost a 22-point lead and had to scramble to salvage an 87-83 win over No. 8 Maryland on Monday night.

"If it's possible to be disappointed after a (win), I'd say that's how I'm feeling right now," McGraw said. "I thought we completely lost our poise, which is so unusual for us."

Jewell Loyd scored a career-high 31 points and Kayla McBride had 20 for the Irish, who previously hadn't yielded more than 76 points in a game.
