Women's BBall Taya Reimer vs UPennTaya Reimer

Kayla McBride scored 15 points and Taya Reimer added 14 to lead a balanced offense in No. 5 Notre Dame's 76-54 win over Penn on Saturday.

Penn coach Mike McLaughlin jumped at the chance last spring to bring a top team into the Palestra to face his squad.

With Notre Dame looking to get a game in coach Muffet McGraw's hometown, McLaughlin saw an opportunity to help his program grow. Despite a 76-54 loss to the fifth-ranked Irish on Saturday, McLaughlin was happy with his decision.

"To bring in a top five team in the Palestra with all the history, for Penn basketball this was awesome for us," McLaughlin said. "I think it was awesome for our program to get a team like that in our facility. Hopefully we've done enough today to get some people to come back."
