SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Jessica Shepard and No. 2 Notre Dame made certain any memories of a 33-point loss at No. 3 Louisville didn’t linger long.

Shepard and the Irish quickly scored the first nine points of the game, and Notre Dame bounced back from its most lopsided defeat in 16 seasons by routing Boston College, 89-60.

Quite a change from that 100-67 loss Thursday.

“I think we all came in with a little chip on our shoulders. Quite frankly that game was embarrassing and that is not how Notre Dame basketball is played,” Shepard said.

Shepard scored 24 points in 22 minutes as the Irish (16-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast) overwhelmed the young and overmatched Eagles (6-11, 1-3).

The Vols lost in overtime, 79-76 at Texas A&M on Thursday night. But with the 6-foot-5 Wilson sidelined with a right ankle sprain, Tennessee took advantage of the middle with Nared and Mercedes Russell helping build an 18-point lead late in the third quarter.
