SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Skylar Diggins scored 18 points, Natalie Achonwa had 16 points and 12 rebounds for her 10th double-double of the season and No. 2 Notre Dame beat 74-50 St. John's on Sunday.

The All-American penetrated at will. When she wasn't scoring on fast breaks, she was hitting pull-up jumpers or feeding forward Achonwa for easy layups.

St. John's (9-7, 3-1 Big East) was led by Nadirah McKenith with 15 points. The Fighting Irish took a 39-25 halftime lead on a drive through traffic by Diggins as the clock expired.

Notre Dame (16-1, 5-0) outrebounded St. John's 48-22 and outscored the Red Storm 38-24 in the paint.
