The Irish hit the road on Wednesday afternoon looking for a bounce back performance away from home. It was a very strong game for the visitors as the Irish took down Boston College, 97-47.

Balanced scoring helps the Irish roll
If you look at the road losses the Irish have endured in recent weeks, one key issue is the lack of balance on the score sheet. Well on Wednesday night, Notre Dame definitely did not have that problem. All five players in the starting five scored in double digits, with Arike Ogunbowale leading the way with 23 points. Brianna Turner, who has struggled offensively recently, had the second most points for the Irish with 19. Jessica Shepard and Jackie Young both had impressive nights, scoring double-doubles in the process. The Irish even picked up double-digit bench points, something they rarely are able to accomplish. Wednesday night was definitely a team win for the Irish
Ogunbowale moves up in the record books
Arike Ogunbowale is closing in on history. Coming into Wednesday night’s contest, Ogunbowale sat at 2,301 career points. Her 23 points against Boston College moved her into second place all-time in program history. In the process, she passed associate coach Beth (Morgan) Cunningham who had 2,322 career points. Ogunbowale now sits just 33 points off of Skylar Diggins Smith’s all-time record.
The Irish will hit the road once again as they travel to Raleigh, North Carolina to take on North Carolina State on Monday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET.
