NOTRE DAME — Kayla McBride scored 18 points and Notre Dame held Virginia Tech to 27 percent shooting in a 74-48 victory Thursday, the Fighting Irish’s 22nd straight home win.

The Irish (20-0, 7-0) are off to their second best start, three victories shy of matching the 2000-01 start en route to a national championship. It was the most lopsided loss of the season for the Hokies (10-10, 0-7), who have lost eight straight.

Virginia Tech was only four points down until Notre Dame ended the first half on a 15-1 run to take a 37-19 halftime lead, the fewest points allowed by the Irish in the first half this season. The Irish opened the second half with an 8-2 spurt to put the game away.

Vanessa Panousis led the Hokies with 12 points. Uju Ugoka, who averages 20.2 points, was held to 10 points.
