Ouch: Notre Dame beats USF women, 92-49



If you're tired of the agonizingly close finishes the USF men's basketball team has endured in the last two weeks, here's a refreshing break: USF's women's team found itself down 31 at the half on Wednesday on the way to a 92-49 loss at No. 14 Notre Dame.

USF (13-14, 3-11) is below .500 for the first time this season, all but eliminating itself from contention for the Big East tournament with two games to play. Shantia Grace led the Bulls with 15 points, but went 4 of 14 from the field. Notre Dame played nine players and all but one finished with at least seven points.

The Bulls have another tough game ahead, returning home to face Pittsburgh on Saturday before finishing the year at Marquette. They're likely to miss the postseason for the first time in five seasons.
