VANCOUVER, B.C. —- Notre Dame senior guard Niele Ivey (St. Louis, Mo.) scored 12 points in helping the BIG EAST Women’s Basketball All-Stars to a 91-57 victory over Simon Fraser University. The win improved the All-Stars mark to 3-1 on its six-game Canadian tour.

The 34-point margin of victory is the largest in the four games. The squad, under the direction of West Virginia head coach Alexis Basil, jumped out to an early 12-point lead and never trailed. Ivey has scored in double figures in two of those contests and is averaging 11.0 points (44) and 3.5 rebounds (14).

The All-Stars will resume play on June 2 against University of Victoria and then conclude its tour against that same Victoria team on June 3.
