SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Jewell Loyd scored 29, Taya Reimer added 19 and eight rebounds and sixth-ranked Notre Dame repeatedly attacked Georgia Tech inside en route to an 89-76 victory Thursday night.

The Irish (18-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) outscored Georgia Tech (12-8, 2-4) 54-40 in the paint, including 14-0 on fastbreak points, to win their fourth straight. But Notre Dame didn't shake the Yellow Jackets until a pair of layups by Lindsay Allen and Reimer and a pair of free throws by Loyd with 5:33 gave the Irish a 17-point lead.

Loyd fell a point shy of a second straight game of 30 points. Brianna Turner added 14 points for the Irish, who shot 57 percent.

Kaela Davis led the Yellow Jackets with 24 points. Aaliyah Whiteside scored 16 points, the seventh straight game she's scored at least 14 points, Katarina Vuckovic had 12 and Zaire O'Neil 10.
