SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Olivia Miles scored 13 points and Klee Watson added 12 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 10 Notre Dame rout Georgia Tech 76-53 on Thursday night.

Sonia Citron also had 12 points for the Irish (23-4, 14-3 ACC), who improved to 17-1 all-time against the Yellow Jackets. Maddy Westbeld scored 11 points, while KK Bransford had 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting off the bench for Notre Dame, which closed out its regular-season home slate with a 13-2 record.

Georgia Tech (13-15, 4-13 ACC) has lost five of its last six contests. Guard Cameron Swartz led the Yellow Jackets with 10 points.


Georgia Tech hit its first four shots and jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first quarter, forcing Coach Niele Ivey to burn an early timeout.

Notre Dame responded with a 17-4 run by shooting 67% from the field to close out the period with a five-point advantage.

The Yellow Jackets kept it to a single-digit deficit in the second quarter before the Irish blew the game open after outscoring Georgia Tech by 10 points in the third quarter.


Georgia Tech: is coming off back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances, but the Yellow Jackets are in danger of finishing below .500 for the first time since the 2012-13 season.

Notre Dame: picks up its 14th ACC victory and remains in a first-place tie with No. 11 Duke atop the ACC.


Georgia Tech: Hosts Virginia Tech on Sunday

Notre Dame: At Louisville on Sunday.
