No. 4 Notre Dame women beat UCLA 82-67

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Allen scored a career-high 22 points and No. 4 Notre Dame beat UCLA 82-67 on Sunday for its fourth straight victory.

Allen was 8 of 10 from the field, including 4 of 5 from 3-point range. The sophomore guard matched her previous career high of 17 points by halftime and set career highs in field goals and 3-pointers made.

Freshman Brianna Turner added 14 points and a career-high 16 rebounds for her first career double-double for the Fighting Irish (12-1). Jewell Lloyd had 12 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

Nirra Fields scored 20 points and Jordin Canada had 16 for UCLA (4-7). The Bruins are 0-5 against Top 25 teams this season.

UCLA hung around for much of a back-and-forth first half, but Notre Dame unleashed a 13-3 run in the final minutes to go ahead by double-figures and cruise into halftime up 42-29

Notre Dame shot 45 percent in the first half, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range, while holding the Bruins to 26 percent (10 of 38) shooting.

Not much changed in the second half, as the Fighting Irish kept a comfortable lead throughout and never let UCLA get closer than nine points.

The Bruins struggled to shoot from pretty much anywhere. They shot 33.3 percent (23 of 69) from the field overall, 32 percent (7 of 22) from 3-point range and 52 percent (14 of 27) from the free-throw line.

Notre Dame had no such problems scoring. Michaela Mabrey had 11 points to give the Irish four players in double figures and six players made at least three field goals.
