Notre Dame Women's Basketball | Nov. 26, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
As Natalie Achonwa put it, Tuesday was a good knee day.
In her second game back after knee surgery in late October, Achonwa had 17 points and eight rebounds to help No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 25 DePaul 92-76 for its second victory over a ranked opponent this season.
After scoring only four points in 14 minutes against Penn on Saturday, Achonwa felt much more comfortable this time out.
"I think I was overthinking it, I wanted to be back so bad," Achonwa said. "I just let it flow a little bit more today.
"Today was just a good knee day, as we call them."
For Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw, the difference from Achonwa's first game of the season to her second was clear.
