 South  Orange, NJ  (Sports Network)  -  Ariel Braker  had 15  points and  five
 rebounds as No. 2 Notre Dame downed Seton Hall, 69-49, on Saturday.
 Kayla  McBride added  12  points and  nine boards,  while  Skylar Diggins  and
 Natalie  Achonwa each  dropped in 11 points for the Fighting Irish (22-1, 10-0
 Big East), who have now won 14 straight regular season Big East games.
 Achonwa also pulled down nine rebounds in the victory.
 Brittany  Morris scored  a game-high 16 points and Ka-Deidre Simmons posted 11
 points, six assists and five steals for Seton Hall (8-15, 3-7), which lost its
 third straight.
 Seton  Hall  opened the scoring  with a Simmons jumper,  but that was the last
 time the Pirates had the lead as Notre Dame responded with a 17-2 run to go on
 top for good.
 The  Fighting  Irish held  a double-digit  lead from there  until a Simmons 3-
 pointer  sparked  a 13-2  run to  bring Seton  Hall back  within five before a
 McBride layup gave Notre Dame a 35-28 advantage at the break.
 A  personal 5-0 push by Morris cut Seton Hall's deficit to 39-33 three minutes
 into  the second half,  but Notre Dame responded with a 12-2 spurt to regain a
 51-35  advantage  and cruised from there,  stretching their lead as high as 27
 points en route to the win.
