W BBall: Irish Defeat Boston College, 82-61

Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Feb. 13, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics

BOSTON (AP) - Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw really wasn't surprised her team was a bit sluggish after beating Boston College so easily last month.

Kayla McBride scored 19 points, Jewell Loyd 18 and second-ranked Notre Dame coasted to an 82-61 win over the Eagles Thursday night, giving the Fighting Irish their best start in school history.

"It really is," she said when asked if it's hard facing a team you've dominated. "No matter how many times you tell yourself, `we've got to be ready and play hard,' you just don't have the same feel to it." 

After rolling to a 95-53 win in South Bend, Ind. in the first meeting on Jan 9, she was bothered her team wasn't sharp in the first half.

"I was really disappointed," she said. "I was disappointed with the energy we came out with, just the lethargic pace. I thought we picked up it a little bit in the second half when we came up and pressed them."
