By the numbers, you would have thought Wednesday's 85-54 win for the Notre Dame women's basketball team over Providence was a tremendous bounce back from two consective losses at home.
After all, the Irish won by 31.
They forced 29 turnovers.
And had 23 steals. That's one shy of the Big East record and the most by a Notre Dame team in 13 years.
Charel Allen had a career high with 6 steals.
Yet, despite all that success on defensive, Muffet McGraw was not pleased with her team's defensive effort.
She called the 2nd half defensive performance the worst Notre Dame's had all season.
The fact that Providence has just one win in the Big East may have played a role in all of this.
Notre Dame also came out of the gate slow, trailing 11-7 midway through the 1st half. That's when the Irish went on a 16-0 run and took a 36-19 lead into the half.
The Irish improved to 4-3 in the Big East and 16-5 overall.
Lindsay Schrader led the way with 15 points. Charel Allen and Devereaux Peters each added 12.
