This was the type of game Loyd Jewell was looking for after an extended break for No. 4 Notre Dame.

Jewell scored 20 points, Natalie Achonwa had 18 points and nine rebounds and the Fighting Irish cruised to an 86-64 victory over Michigan on Saturday night.

"I wanted to come out here and be aggressive," Jewell said. "I haven't been shooting the ball well at all recently, so it was good for me to come out here and get a good feel."

Jewell was 10 for 14 from the field and also had four rebounds and three assists in a team-high 34 minutes. Michaela Mabrey added 14 points in the Irish's first game since a 90-48 victory over UCLA on Dec. 7.

Notre Dame (9-0) put this one away early, carrying a 47-23 lead into the break. The Irish shot 59 percent from the floor and forced 19 turnovers, including 13 in the decisive first half.
