CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Hall of Fame coach Muffet McGraw and No. 2 Notre Dame survived their toughest test of the season to remain unbeaten.
Natalie Achonwa scored a career-high 26 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and the Fighting Irish survived a late challenge to beat Virginia 79-72 on Sunday.
"Welcome to the ACC," McGraw quipped after her team's first victory by single digits this year.
Notre Dame is one of two unbeaten teams left in the country joining former BIG EAST rival Connecticut.
