WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Jewell Loyd had 29 points and 10 rebounds and No. 2 Notre Dame overcame its own poor shooting to beat Wake Forest 86-61 on Thursday night and remain undefeated.

Kayla McBride added 19 points and Taya Reimer 10 for the Fighting Irish (26-0, 13-0), who shot just 39.4 percent from the field (28 of 71) and made only 3 of 16 3-pointers.

However, Notre Dame overcame one of its worst shooting games this season by forcing the Demon Deacons (14-12, 5-8) into 22 turnovers, held them to 35.7 percent shooting (20 of 56) and outrebounded them 49-39.

Dearica Hamby had 26 points and Jill Brunori added 10 points and 10 rebounds for Wake Forest, which saw a two-game winning streak end after hitting just 5 of 16 3-pointers and went 16 of 29 from the free throw line.

The Irish return home to host Duke Sunday at 1pm at Purcell Pavilion.
