SOUTH BEND — Natalie Achonwa had 23 points with 12 rebounds as No. 5 Notre Dame cruised to a 109-70 win over Utah State on Saturday.

Notre Dame (6-1) dominated Utah State (2-7) in the paint, with Achonwa and other Irish players hitting easy shots in the low post off feeds from fastbreak and half-court sets.

Utah State tried collapsing on the low post, but was often whistled for fouls. Aggies guard Jenna Johnson fouled out just three minutes into the second half. Devyn Christiansen led the Aggies with 21 points.

Notre Dame took a 17-point lead into the break, then quickly put the game away by forcing turnovers with a full-court press. Ariel Braker and Jewell Lloyd each scored 15 for the Irish.
