TORONTO (AP) - Canadian-born senior Natalie Achonwa had 11 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 5 Notre Dame rout Duquesne 100-61 on Sunday.

The game served as a homecoming for Achonwa, who has played on the Canadian national team and grew up in the area. Duquesne has four Canadians on its roster with Wumi Agunbiade, Oditte Odisho, Jose-Ann Johnson and Brianna Thomas.

Kayla McBride scored 22 points and helped the Irish take a 47-22 lead at the break. She and Jewell Loyd combined for 11 points during a 17-4 run to open the second half that put the game away.

Agunbiade scored 23 to lead the Dukes, including 14 of the team's 22 points in the first half.
