Game Recap: Women's Basketball | 1/13/2019 3:21:00 PM

Strong Defensive Effort Leads No. 1 Irish to 78-48 Win over Wake Forest
Mabrey led with 18 points while Turner earned a double-double

Quote:
NOTRE DAME, Ind. The No. 1 Notre Dame women's basketball team used a strong defensive effort to garner a 78-48 victory over Wake Forest inside Purcell Pavilion on Sunday afternoon. The Fighting Irish (16-1, 4-0) held the Demon Deacons (9-7, 0-3) to 15 first half points and 28.6 percent shooting in the game, holding their leading scorer, Elisa Penna, to five points.

Marina Mabrey led the Irish in scoring for the fourth time this season with 18 points to go with her season high seven rebounds. Brianna Turner notched her fifth double-double on the year with 14 points and a season high 12 rebounds. Jessica Shepard rounded out the double-digit scoring with 16 points and a season best four steals.

"I was particularly pleased with the defense, especially on (Elissa) Penna. She's a great player who can score in so many ways. We mixed up who was guarding her - both Turner and Young did a great job," Karen & Kevin Keyes Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw said. "Offensively, I thought Brianna and Jess were really active today. Marina shot the ball well. A lot of good things on both ends of the floor."

How It Happened
Shepard scored eight of the team's first 14 points which ignited an 18-0 start to the game. Wake Forest didn't connect on a field until the 2:13 mark of the first quarter, as the Irish held them to 0-for-11 shooting and eight turnovers in that span. Notre Dame ended the period up 22-6, in which 16 of the points were scored in the paint.

Notre Dame's defense left its mark on the second quarter as well, keeping the Demon Deacons off the scoreboard from 7:11 to 2:07, ultimately holding Wake to 4-of-16 shooting for the period. Shepard reached double digits (10) by half and was followed by nine points from Mabrey, who led the Irish in scoring in the quarter with five. All-in-all, the Irish boasted a 37-15 lead at the half.

Shepard and Mabrey combined for 12 of the team's first 14 points of the third quarter, igniting a 22-5 scoring spree over the first six minutes, extending Notre Dame's lead to 59-20. Turner led the Irish in scoring with 8 points in the third, already achieving her double-double for the day.

Boasting a 62-28 lead heading into the fourth, the Irish cruised to the 78-48 final, scoring 52 of their points in the paint. In addition, Mikayla Vaughn came off the bench to supply quality minutes once again, earning nine points and a career high tying four blocks.

Player of the Game
Mabrey tied her season high of four made threes for the third time this season, leading the Irish in scoring with 18 points. Mabrey also reeled in a season best seven rebounds.

Mabrey scores 18, No. 1 Notre Dame routs Wake Forest 78-48
Jan 13, 2019
Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- With her off-campus roommate Arike Ogunbowale struggling, Marina Mabrey took over the scoring load for No. 1 Notre Dame in a wire-to-wire 78-48 victory over Wake Forest on Sunday.

"It happens to everyone," Mabrey said after scoring 18 points while Ogunbowale, averaging 22.6 points a game coming in, was held to four points on 1-of-11 shooting. "I'm confident the next game she will be ready to go -- she got the misses out of the way."

Mabrey hit 7 of 11 shots, including 4 3-pointers, and had seven rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes. Ogunbowale, who scored 30 points Thursday in Notre Dame's 82-68 victory over No. 2 Louisville, saw her 37-game double-digit scoring streak end despite playing a team-high 29 minutes.

"Sometimes you just have that kind of day," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said. "Coming off a big game like Louisville, she just struggled to find her shot and her rhythm. But she did some other things (five assists)."

Jessica Shepard had 16 points while Brianna Turner had 14 points and 12 rebounds -- her fifth double-double of the season -- for the Fighting Irish (16-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). They combined to go 13 for 18 from the field.

"Offensively, Bri and Jessica were really active today and Marina shot the ball well," McGraw said.

Wake Forest coach Jen Hoover was impressed by the Irish.

"It's hard to guard a team that has five players on the court who are so good offensively," Hoover said. "They are much different (with Turner back from sitting out last season with an ACL injury). She's such a rim protector."

Christina Morra scored 13 points and Ivana Raca had 12 for the Demon Deacons (9-7, 0-3). Elisa Penna, Wake's 6-foot-3 leading scorer coming in at 15.4 points per game, was held to just five points on 1-of-12 shooting, including 0 for 5 from long distance.

"I was really pleased with our defense, particularly on Penna," McGraw said. "She's just a great player, hard to guard. We mixed up who was on her -- Brianna and Jackie did a good job on her and the others helped out as well. We did a good job finding her in the zone. That was No. 1 in the keys of the game."

Ogunbowale made two free throws with 54 seconds left in the first half. Notre Dame took a 37-15 halftime lead after starting on an 18-0 run.

Notre Dame commanded the boards 30-16, forced 13 turnovers and held Wake Forest, which missed its first 11 shots, to 20 percent shooting (6 of 30). But the Irish had 10 miscues themselves and shot 41 percent (14 of 34) in the first half, including 6 of 18 in the second quarter.

The Fighting Irish came out shooting 81.8 percent with eight assists on nine baskets as they increased the lead to 57-20 with 4:16 to go in the third quarter. Shepard, Mabrey and Turner all had six points in the spurt. The lead reached 40 points before Notre Dame finished the third quarter up 62-28.

BIG PICTURE
Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons were playing their second straight game without 6-foot-1 guard Alex Sharp, their second leading scorer at 12.7 ppg. Sharp broke her right hand during practice in between the Deacons' losses to Miami and Boston College and is expected to miss four to six weeks. Sharp, who is from Melbourne, Australia, is one of five international players on the Wake Forest roster. The others are Ellen Hahne (Sweden), Raca (Serbia), Morra (Canada) and Penna (Italy).

Notre Dame: The Fighting Irish have won 28 straight games against unranked teams after beating a top 10-opponent. But they again had trouble handling the ball in the first half, committing 10 turnovers and finishing with 18. Against Louisville, Notre Dame had 11 of its 18 turnovers in the first half.

SISTERS AND ALUMNAE
On Wednesday, Notre Dame visits Virginia Tech (13-3, 0-3 ACC), which has Mabrey's younger sister, 5-foot-7 freshman Dara, starting at guard. Dara Mabrey is averaging 12.0 points per game while shooting 47 percent from the floor, 48 percent from 3-point land and 89 percent at the charity stripe. She also has a team-leading 45 assists for the Hokies, who were off Sunday.

"I've never played against (Dara) before," said Marina, the driveway games aside. The sisters did lead Manasquan (N.J.) High School to a state title in 2015. "It's going to be different, obviously. I'm looking forward to seeing her; I haven't seen her in a while. It will be fun."

The two Mabreys' older sister, Michaela, played for Notre Dame from 2012-16, played on three Final Four teams and was a two-time captain for McGraw. She is now director of recruiting for the Louisiana State women's basketball team.

Melissa D'Amico, who played for McGraw and graduated from Notre Dame in 2008, is an assistant for Hoover.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For seven of the next 10 games, the No. 1 Notre Dame women's basketball team will hit the road, beginning with Virginia Tech on Wednesday, Jan. 16. Tip is set for 7 p.m. ET inside Cassell Coliseum, streaming live on ACCN Extra. The Fighting Irish lead the all-time series, 10-1, with a 3-1 mark at Virginia Tech.

STARTERS' NUMBERS
Right now, three Irish players all average above 4.0 assists per game and rank within the top-6 in the league. Jackie Young ranks 3rd at 4.7 assists per game, Mabrey fifth at 4.3 and Ogunbowale sixth at 4.2.

Furthermore, all five starters average 13.0 ppg or higher, accounting for 88.9 percent of the team's scoring.

MABREY VS MABREY
For the first time in their respective basketball careers, it'll be a Mabrey vs Mabrey showdown.

Marina & Dara played together in high school in 2015 at Manasquan, where they won the Tournament of Champions.

"She's my sister, and I want to see her play well in every game, so if they're playing us or anybody, I want her to play well every time she steps on the court," Marina said. "I'm just really happy I get to watch her play and see that she's playing at such a high level. It's cool to see someone so young impact a program so quickly."

2,000 POINTS & 1,000 REBOUNDS
Shepard is quickly approaching a very rare milestone in 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds. Entering Wednesday's game, Shepard boasts 1,944 points and 1,012 rebounds, which rank 14th and 13th respectively among active D1 players.

The only Irish player to ever achieve this impressive feat was 2001 graduate Ruth Riley, who garnered 2,072 points and 1,007 rebounds.

STAT SHEET STUFFER
A stat sheet stuffer game is when a player records at least five of three different stats. Against No. 2 Louisville on Jan. 10, Young collected 14 points, six rebounds and five assists, marking her seventh 5-5-5 game on the season --> which is two more than the next highest player in Shepard.

BLOCK PARTY
Graduate student Brianna Turner is turning up the heat in the block department. Turner has reached her season high of four blocks on four separate occasions this season. The Texas native is averaging 2.1 blocks/game, which ranks 2nd in the ACC and ranks 34th in the nation. Furthermore, Turner is chasing Ruth Riley's all-time mark of 370 at Notre Dame, currently in second place with 299.

GAME OF RUNS
Basketball is a game of runs, and the Irish have achieved success by not allowing a single 10-0 run by any opponent yet this season. In fact, Notre Dame leads its opposition, 19-0, in that category. Notre Dame first posted its longest run of the season vs Binghamton on Dec. 16 with 21 straight.

Then the Irish matched it twice vs Pitt on Jan. 3, recording 21-0 runs in both the first and second quarters.

GETTING TO THE LINE
The Irish continue to attack the basket and reach the charity stripe, ranking first in the country in made free-throws with 290 and second in attempts with 396.

Ogunbowale currently ranks 16th nationally in made free throws (80) and 18th in attempts (100). Against No. 2 Louisville on Jan. 10, Ogunbowale went a perfect 12-for-12 from the free-throw line, which stood as the second best single-game performance in ND history, trailing just Ruth Riley & Ashley Barlow (13-for-13).

Taylor Emery led the Hokies' efforts, scoring 20 points for the seventh time this season on 8 for 19 shooting. The senior guard also pulled down 10 rebounds, recording her second double-double of the season. Mabrey would finish the game with 15 points and Regan Magarity was also in double figures with 10 points and 7 rebounds.

... The Virginia Tech women's basketball team erased an early 12-point deficit and briefly held the lead in the second half Sunday afternoon, before falling in overtime to No. 14 Syracuse. Taylor Emery scored 27 points in the game and had the ball in her hands in the final seconds, but was unable to get a shot off as time expired, as Tech moved to 13-2 on the season and 0-2 in league play.

... Syracuse was able to take advantage of their defense, scoring 28 points off of turnovers and outscoring the Hokies in transition 22-4.

Tech's defense was solid I n their own right, holding Syracuse to their lowest percentage from behind the arc of the season (21 percent, 6 of 28).

Other key notes:
Forward Regan Magarity was honored pregame for recording 1,000 rebounds, becoming the first player in Tech history to do so. The redshirt senior pulled down another 10 Sunday, bringing her career tally to 1,064. She ranks seventh amongst active players in D1 and leads the conference at 13.3 rebounds per game.

Magarity collected her 11thdouble-double of the season, scoring 18 points.

...

Tech build its largest lead in the third quarter, following an 8-0 spurt at the 5:54 mark going up 19, the largest lead of the night. However, UVA would fight back, adjusting defensively and using hot shooting in the fourth to mount a comeback.

...

For the Hokies, Regan Magarity recorded another double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. As a team, Tech shot 37 percent from the floor and made 12 shots from beyond the arc.
