Skylar Diggins scored 18 points to lead No. 2 Notre Dame to a 74-50 rout of 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 Natalie Achonwa for easy layups.
Achonwa had 16 points and 12 rebounds for her 10th double-double of the season for Notre Dame (16-1, 5-0). She scored eight of Notre Dame's first 12 points, all on layups.
St. John's (9-7, 3-1) was led by Nadirah McKenith with 15 points.
The Irish took a 39-25 halftime lead on a drive through traffic by Diggins as the clock expired.
Notre Dame outrebounded St. John's 48-22 and outscored the Red Storm 38-24 in the paint.
