Natalie Achonwa had 22 points and 12 rebounds, Skylar Diggins added 21 points and seven assists and second-ranked Notre Dame routed No. 10 Louisville 93-64 Monday night, the 18th straight victory for the Fighting Irish.

Louisville managed to cut Notre Dame's lead to seven points early in the second half, but the Irish quickly responded with a 10-0 run and the Cardinals didn't threaten again. Playing on the same court where the two schools' men's teams played a five overtime game two nights earlier, the women's game never came close to matching that intensity as the Irish dominated most of the way.

Notre Dame (23-1, 11-0 Big East) improved to 7-1 against ranked opponents this season, its only loss coming against No. 1 Baylor in December. The loss ended a six-game winning streak for Louisville (20-5, 8-3), its second longest Big East winning streak since joining the league in 2005-06.
