The Irish made a season-high 16 3-pointers on 29 attempts, the first of three straight games in which they've hit at least 10 triples. Notre Dame (24-2, 12-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) also got 16 points from Marina Mabrey and 11 points and eight assists from Jackie Young in winning its ninth in a row.

"We've got to grow from it".

MI (15-13-3, 10-10-3-2 Big Ten) jumped out to a 2-0 lead behind first-period goals from Adam Winborg and Dexter Dancs.

Ogunbowale had 27 points and eight rebounds and Shepard scored 15 with eight rebounds, and both went over the 1,500-point mark for their careers.

"I really liked (Donahue) and unfortunately (he) got fired", Farrell said.

Boston College got the lead down to nine after that, but came no closer. Of their first 37 points, 30 were scored inside, giving them a 30-6 advantage against the Cavaliers before Aiyeotan heated up after halftime.

"We've got to change that moving forward because every team right now is playing for something", Boyle said.

Farrell hit seven threes and had 20 points during a 31-14 Notre Dame surge that put the visitors up by 20 with six minutes left in the first half. "So we were definitely going to battle back, and we've battled back before, so it was the same story".

Irish junior forward Jessica Shepard goes up for a layup during Notre Dame's 94-62 win over North Carolina on February 1 at Purcell Pavilion. But the Fighting Irish are in good position to finish strong after their recent hot streak.

The Wolverines will wrap up Big Ten regular-season play by hosting the Fighting Irish at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Yost Ice Arena. "She is somebody that is just electric when she gets the ball in the middle of the floor, you know great things are going to happen", McGraw said. His injury kept him sidelined for his final college game in his home state, but his teammates helped make it memorable. Robinson, a 6-foot-6 junior guard, is second in the ACC in scoring at 20.7 points per game and has scored 27 or more in four of his last five games. "I don't know where we would be without her", McGraw said.

Next up for Notre Dame is a Big Monday home contest against Miami on February 19 that will be televised at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Boston College: The Eagles hope to salvage their season Tuesday at N.C. State.
