SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Jewell Loyd scored 27 points, Natalie Achonwa added 21, and No. 2 Notre Dame held Georgia Tech to 31 percent shooting in an 87-72 victory on Monday night.

After a slow start, the Irish used a 10-0 run to take a 16-10 lead. Spurts of 10-2 and 11-3 in the second half helped them put the game away.

Loyd scored seven straight at the end of the first half, capped by an alley-oop layup, and then made back-to-back layups after the break to give the Irish a 16-point lead.

The Irish (25-0, 12-0 ACC) are five wins shy of their longest winning streak, set last season. The loss ended a four-game winning streak for the Yellow Jackets (17-9, 7-6), who were led by a career-high 21 points by Aaliyah Whiteside.

Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw (739-258) tied former Virginia coach Debbie Ryan (739-324) for 10th in career victories.
