Perfect run in ACC


Notre Dame’s first run through the Atlantic Coast Conference couldn’t have gone any better. The second-ranked Fighting Irish polished off a perfect debut season in ACC women’s basketball by beating No. 13 North Carolina State 84-60 on Sunday. Natalie Achonwa scored 19 points and Jewell Loyd added 18 points for the Irish (29-0, 16-0). They shot 56 percent and led by 30 after a second-half run helped them cap the first undefeated regular season for an ACC school since the 2006-07 Duke team. Now the Irish hope to keep rolling through Tobacco Road: They’re the top seed in the ACC tournament that starts Wednesday in Greensboro, and with a victory in the quarterfinals they will match a school record with their 30th straight victory. – Associated Press
