• Villa Maria graduate Kayla McBride became the 11th player in Notre Dame history to reach 1,500 career points when she scored 15 Thursday night in the Irish’s 79-52 rout of Miami.

McBride had a rough start to the game, missing her first seven shots, but she recovered to make 6-of-9 attempts the rest of the way. She has soared up the Notre Dame scoring list this season and still could gain a few more spots before her college career concludes. She passed Ashley Barlow (1,492 points, 2006-10) on Thursday. Here’s the list of the top 11:

1.  Skylar Diggins (2009-13) 2,357
2.  Beth Morgan (1993-97) 2,322
3.  Katryna Gaither (1993-97) 2,216
4.  Ruth Riley (1997-2001) 2,072
5.  Jacqueline Batteast (2001-05) 1,874
6.  Alicia Ratay (1999-2003) 1,763
7.  Karen Robinson (1987-91) 1,590
8.  Trena Keys (1982-86) 1,589
9.  Natalie Novosel (2008-12) 1,569
10.  Charel Allen (2004-08) 1,566
11.  Kayla McBride (2010-14) 1,505


• General McLane grad Sarah Hansen had 15 points, nine rebounds and three steals as the Florida Gulf Coast women stayed unbeaten in the Atlantic Sun Conference with a 56-49 victory over Jacksonville on Thursday night at FGCU’s Alico Arena in Fort Myers, Fla. Hansen was a key player in the second half as she scored nine points while the Eagles struggled offensively and scored just 17 points. FGCU improved to 12-6, 6-0.


• Edinboro can clinch at least a tie for the Eastern Wrestling League title with a pair of wins this weekend. The Scots visit Cleveland State tonight and host Bloomsburg on Saturday. In other Edinboro mat news, Mitchell Port is ranked No. 1 at 141 pounds and A.J. Schopp is No. 2 at 133 in the first NCAA coaches’ panel rankings of the season. Eight Scots are ranked.

• Mercyhurst, ranked No. 12 in NCAA Division II, will face No. 7 Kutztown tonight in a PSAC dual. The Lakers have received a lift from two former District 10 standouts: Reynolds graduate Dylan D’Urso (141 pounds, 17-2) and Central Tech grad Andrew Welton (heavyweight, 14-4).
