SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Kayla McBride got comfortable early and No. 2 Notre Dame jumped out fast.
The Irish led by double digits less than five minutes into their game against South Dakota State and hit 17 of their first 21 shots on the way to a 94-51 rout of the Jackrabbits on Thursday night.
McBride scored 18 points on 8-for-8 shooting from the field and 2-for-2 on free throws, and also had four steals.
"My teammates were finding me in open areas and I was just hitting shots," said McBride, who went 9 for 23 in Notre Dame's last game, a 70-58 win at Oregon State. "It was definitely good to be home."
