Natalie Achonwa scored 17 points, and Kayla McBride had 16 to help No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 25 DePaul 92-76 on Tuesday night for its second victory over a ranked opponent this season.

Taya Reimer had 15 points and 14 rebounds off the bench for the Fighting Irish (5-0), who won their 28th consecutive regular-season game and 15th straight at home.

DePaul (3-1) was led by 18 points from reserve Megan Rogowski in the Blue Demons' first game in eight days.

Notre Dame outrebounded DePaul 58-33 and held the Blue Demons to 30 percent shooting in a dominant second half.

No. 6 Stanford 86, No. 16 Purdue 69: Chiney Ogwumike scored 17 of her 22 points in the second half to lead Stanford to an 86-69 win over Purdue and earn Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer her 899th career victory.

With her next win, the Hall of Famer will become the fifth women's basketball coach to reach the 900-win milestone, joining Pat Summitt, Sylvia Hatchell, C. Vivian Stringer and Jody Conradt.

VanDerveer will get her first opportunity today when the Cardinal (5-1) face Florida Gulf Coast.

Ogwumike got in early foul trouble, playing only nine minutes in the first half. Stanford led just 40-35 at the break before the senior All-American got going. She made nine of her 11 shots from the field as the Cardinal shot 62 percent for the game.

KK Houser scored 20 points while Courtney Moses added 12 to lead Purdue (4-1).


Indiana 77, Evansville 46: Jeremy Hollowell scored a career-high 18 points and freshman Noah Vonleh added 13 points and 12 rebounds, leading Indiana past Evansville.

The Hoosiers (6-1) rebounded from their first loss this season with a defensive effort that completely locked down one of the nation's best shooting teams.

D.J. Balentine, the nation's No. 4 scorer, finished with a season-low 14 points after scoring at least 29 in each of his first five games as the Purple Aces (5-1) failed to go 6-0 for the first time since Jerry Sloan's senior season of 1964-65. Duane Gibson added 10 for Evansville.

It was never close.

The Hoosiers scored the first 12 points, extended the lead to as much as 20 in the first half and never let the Purple Aces get within single digits in the second half.

Evansville dropped to 0-9 all-time in the series.

No. 11 Gonzaga 113, Chaminade 81: Sam Dower Jr. and Gerard Coleman scored 19 points each as Gonzaga (5-1) cruised to an easy win over Division II Chaminade (2-2) in the Maui Invitational.

Przemek Karnowski had a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds. Kevin Pangos and Kyle Dranginis had 18 points each. Gary Bell Jr. had 16 and Drew Barham had 11.

Gonzaga will play Arkansas today in the Maui tournament's fifth-place game. Chaminade will play Minnesota in the event's seventh-place game.

No. 8 Syracuse 92, California 81: Tyler Ennis scored 28 points and led two key second-half runs that carried Syracuse past California in the Maui Invitational. The win put the Orange (6-0) in the tournament title game tonight against Dayton or No. 18 Baylor. Justin Cobbs scored 18 points for the Golden Bears (5-1), who will play the Dayton-Baylor loser in the third-place game.

No. 13 Connecticut 76, Loyola (Md.) 66: DeAndre Daniels had 21 points and eight rebounds to help keep Connecticut (7-0) remained undefeated with a win over Loyola, Md. (4-1).
