SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Kayla McBride scored 17 of her 19 points in the first half and No. 2 Notre Dame jumped out to an early 23-point lead to beat Cincinnati 64-42 on Saturday for its 15th straight victory.


The winning streak matches the fourth-longest in school history, also accomplished in 2009-10 and 1990-91. The victory also was the 699th in 31 seasons for coach Muffet McGraw, 26 coaching Notre Dame (20-1, 8-0 Big East).


Cincinnati (8-13, 0-8) fell to 0-9 all-time against the Fighting Irish.


Kayla Cook led the Bearcats with 12 points. Dayeesha Hollins, Cincinnati's leading scorer at 15.4 points per game, was held to a season-low six.



Connecticut 71, St. John's 65

NEW YORK — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 points and Kelly Faris added 17 to help lead Connecticut to a win over St. John's.


The Huskies (20-1, 7-1 Big East) had to work for the entire game to earn this one. With the game tied at 57, Mosqueda-Lewis took over, scoring UConn's next seven points. She had a three-point play and then hit four free throws to give UConn a 64-59 lead with 1:55 left.


Aliyyah Handford hit one free throw to make it a four-point game with 1:37 left before Faris answered with a 3-pointer 20 seconds later to seal the win.


Louisville 74, GeOrgetown 60

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Antonita Slaughter scored 22 points and Louisville held Georgetown's Sugar Rodgers to only six points in a win over the Hoyas.



Iowa St. 67, Texas Tech 52

AMES, Iowa — Chelsea Poppens had 18 points and nine rebounds to help Iowa State rally past Texas Tech.


Hallie Christofferson added 15 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks for the Cyclones (15-5, 6-4 Big 12), who trailed 20-12 just past the midway point of the first half.


Baylor 81, Oklahoma St. 62

STILLWATER, Okla. — Brittney Griner had 30 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high seven assists to lead top-ranked Baylor to its 19th straight win, a victory over No. 19 Oklahoma State.


The Lady Bears (20-1, 10-0 Big 12) took control with an 18-2 run immediately after coach Kim Mulkey called timeout and put her five starters back on the floor with 10:03 remaining, just after Liz Donohoe's scoop shot put Oklahoma State (15-5, 4-5) up 21-16.
