Natalie Achonwa had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and top-seeded Notre Dame pulled away in the second half for an 84-67 victory over ninth-seeded Arizona State on Monday night.

The unbeaten Fighting Irish (34-0) have won their last 15 games by double digits, although the Sun Devils (23-10) kept this one close during a sloppy first half. Deja Mann scored 16 points for Arizona State.

Notre Dame led 32-26 at halftime before scoring the first six points of the second. Led by the 6-foot-3 Achonwa, the Irish outscored Arizona State 46-34 in the paint.

Kayla McBride had 22 points and nine assists for Notre Dame, which advanced to the Sweet 16 for the 12th time in the last 18 years.
