LONDON -- For the past few years, the Notre Dame women's basketball program has had a wildly successful promotion at its home games where fans at Purcell Pavilion can receive a coupon for a free Big Mac if the Fighting Irish score 88 points in a game. So it came as absolutely no surprise that even in the land of fish & chips and bangers & mash, Notre Dame found the Golden Arches figuring prominently in another Fighting Irish victory.
Sophomore guard (and 2012 McDonald's High School All-American) Michaela Mabrey (Belmar, N.J./Manasquan) scored a game-high 24 points, including a sizzling 6-of-12 from the three-point line, while a pair of 2013 McDonald's High School All-Americans added double-doubles -- freshman forward Taya Reimer (Fishers, Ind./Hamilton Southeastern) with 16 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, and freshman guard Lindsay Allen (Mitchellville, Md./St. John's College) with 16 points and a game-best 12 assists -- as Notre Dame routed the reigning English Basketball League runner-up Barking Abbey, 101-54 on Tuesday night at Barking Abbey School in the London suburb of Barking, England, in the first of three exhibition games for the Fighting Irish on their 2013 European tour.
