SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) She didn't get a dunk on Sunday, but it may only be a matter of time for Notre Dame's Brianna Turner.

That was the lone highlight the 6-foot-3 freshman forward didn't manage in an otherwise dominant performance against Holy Cross. Turner had 19 points, seven rebounds and three steals in just 17 minutes for No. 3 Notre Dame, which used a 39-2 run in the second half to blow out Holy Cross, 104-29 in the first round of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame Challenge.

Twice in the second half, Turner stole the ball near half court and drove down for layups, tantalizing the crowd and drawing high praise from coach Muffet McGraw.
