CORVALLIS, Ore. -

Kayla McBride scored 20 points, Natalie Achonwa added 16 points and eight rebounds, and No. 2 Notre Dame remained perfect with a 70-58 victory over Oregon State on Sunday.

Sophomore Jewell Loyd, last year's national freshman of the year, had 10 points for the Irish (11-0) - 8.5 below her team-leading average coming in.

Jamie Weisner scored 18 points to lead the Beavers (8-4), and Ruth Hamblin added 12 points, eight rebounds and a school record-tying nine blocks.

Notre Dame used an 11-0 run bridging halftime to take a 37-33 lead, and didn't trail again.

Hamblin's put-back had stretched Oregon State's lead to 33-26 with 55 seconds left in the opening half. The Irish scored the last five points of the period to pull within two at the break, and then scored the first six points of the second half.
