VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Marina Mabrey had the fifth triple-double in Notre Dame history to help the Irish to a 110-54 rout of Valparaiso on Monday night.
The freshman guard finished with 18 points and 10 assists – both career bests – and a school-record 12 steals for the No. 3-ranked Irish (4-0). The last Notre Dame player with a triple-double was Skylar Diggins on Feb. 24, 2013.
Notre Dame turned Valparaiso turnovers into 51 points in the rout.
Thanks largely to eight steals and 14 points by Mabrey in the first half, the Irish (4-0) led the Crusaders 53-18 at the break. Notre Dame converted takeaways into 27 points in the first half alone.
Notre Dame used a 16-0 run in the first quarter to pull away from the Crusaders. Valparaiso went 5:16 without a point during that stretch.
Valparaiso was led in scoring by Meredith Hamlet with 10 points and Jasmyn Walker with nine.
