Notre Dame blows up Pitt on the road, 83-43

From the AP wire: PITTSBURGH -- — Notre Dame coach Niele Ivey's voice can get raspy from time to time, one of the hazards of her job. Typically, though, it recovers between games. Only it didn't following a last-second win over Louisville last week. When Ivey walked onto the floor at the Petersen Events Center on Sunday as the Irish faced Pittsburgh, her voice still had no juice. Ivey's team, however, had no such problems. Maddy Westbeld and Sonia Citron scored 13 points each and 10th-ranked Irish used a huge first-quarter push to race by the Panthers 83-43 on Sunday. Ten days removed from a taut six-point win over the Panthers, Notre Dame had no trouble in the rematch. The Irish (22-4, 13-3 ACC) went on an 18-3 burst over the final 6:47 of the opening frame to build a 16-point lead that Pitt (10-17, 3-13) never really threatened. "I thought this was going to be a really hard game coming after an emotional win like (the one over Louisville)," Ivey said. "So I just talked to this team about not being complacent, to come out locked in and they were from the beginning." Notre Dame needed a game-winning jumper by Olivia Miles at the buzzer to escape the Cardinals. No such heroics were necessary this time around. Though Miles got off to a rough start — missing seven of her first eight shots before recovering a bit in this second half to finish with 10 points, 11 rebounds and five assists — her teammates had little trouble picking up the slack. Citron knocked down all three 3-pointers she took in the first half and Notre Dame's defense suffocated the Panthers when it mattered. Irish guard KK Bransford started the game with a steal and a layup in a sequence that set the tone for their biggest win over a conference opponent this season. The margin allowed Ivey to substitute liberally. Nine Irish played at least 12 minutes. Center Lauren Ebo had 10 points and six rebounds as she makes her way back from a lower-body injury that forced her to miss five games before returning briefly against Louisville. "She’s still (on a minutes restriction) and she’s going to progress as she continues to heal," Ivey said. "But she had a chance to get more minutes today, which was great." Pitt shot just 28% (16 of 57) from the field overall and missed 10 straight shots in the first quarter as Notre Dame took control. Amber Brown led the Panthers with 13 points but Pitt's bid for its first three-game winning streak in ACC play since 2015 vanished quickly. The Panthers' 43 points were a season low and 21 below their average coming in.
