SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Jewell Loyd scored 22 points, Lindsay Allen had 15 and No. 6 Notre Dame defeated Valparaiso 96-46 on Saturday.

Loyd had 14 points in the first half and helped fuel an early second-half run that put the game out of reach. She rested for the final 12:50.

The Irish shot 53 percent from the field and outrebounded Valparaiso 49-22. Notre Dame (3-0) also forced 24 turnovers.

Notre Dame inducted former star Skylar Diggins into its Ring of Honor in a pregame ceremony. Diggins, now with the WNBA's Tulsa Shock, watched from the front row opposite the Irish bench.

Notre Dame closed the first half with a 19-5 run to open a 46-24 lead.

Liz Horton scored 11 points for the Crusaders (0-3).
