Research Notes

  • Natalie Achonwa left Notre Dame's Elite 8 game with 4:51 left with an injury. If she misses the Final Four, it would take a major contributor out of Notre Dame's lineup.

  • Baylor's Odyssey Sims scored 33 points on Monday, finishing eight points behind Jackie Stiles for the single-season scoring record.

  • There were 46 fouls called in Notre Dame's win over Baylor (27 on Baylor, 19 on Notre Dame).The Fighting Irish were 30-33 from the FT line, outscoring the Lady Bears by 15 from the charity stripe in a 19-point win.

  • Baylor forward Nina Davis picked up her second foul with 9:03 left and Baylor up 21-19; after that, Notre Dame outscored the Bears 25-11 for the rest of the half.

  • Notre Dame's Natalie Achonwa has a double-double before the end of the 1st half. It's her 2nd double-double in this year's NCAA Tournament and 8th this season.

  • Baylor's Odyssey Sims is the one pursuing the single-season scoring record, but she was outplayed in the first half by Notre Dame sophomore guard Jewell Loyd.
