NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- No. 4/5 Notre Dame cruised to a 90-48 win over UCLA in front of a capacity crowd at Purcell Pavilion on Saturday afternoon.

The Bruins (3-5) held an 8-6 lead with 14:30 left in the first half. But the Irish (8-0) responded with an extended run of 7-0, 14-4 and 27-6 to take a commanding 33-14 lead with 3:50 left in the first half and were never threatened again.

The Fighting Irish held a 44-20 lead at the break and shot 48.6 percent from the field in the opening half. UCLA struggled from the field, shooting just 23.1 percent (9-for-39).

Notre Dame led by as many as 42 points in the second half and contolled the boards after only leading by two in that category at halftime. Notre Dame was outrebounding its opponents by 19 coming into the game and won the battle of the boards, 48-35.

For the game, Notre Dame shot 56.3 percent (36-for-64) from the field, but was even better from long range, draining 10-of-17 three-pointers for 58.8 percent. The Bruins managed to shoot only 28.0 percent (21-for-75) from the floor.

UCLA was led by senior Atonye Nyingifa's double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds. Senior Thea Lemberger scored 17 points (15 in the second half) and had five assists.

Madison Cable led a quartet of Notre Dame players in double figures with 21 points. Jewell Loyd had 15 points while Natalie Achonwa added 12 points and nine rebounds. Kayla McBride finished with 12 points, six assists and five rebounds.

The Bruins return to action on Sunday, Dec. 15  for a 2:00 p.m. tip-off at San Diego State.
