Washington, D.C. - Georgetown senior Kieraah Marlow (Coatesville, Pa./Coatesville) netted a career-high 34 points and classmate Kristin Heidloff (Chicago, Ill./Fenwick) matched a season-high with 14 points but No. 17 Notre Dame had four starters in double-figures as the Fighting Irish toppled the Hoyas 104-86 in women's basketball action on Saturday afternoon. Georgetown fell to 10-7, 0-4 in BIG EAST play.

Marlow also grabbed 13 rebounds to record her 29th career double-double while sophomore Meredith Cox (Hanover, Pa./DeLone Catholic) scored in double figures for the fourth time this season with 10 points, including three three pointers.

Ashley Barlow paced the Irish with 21 points and Notre Dame (15-3, 3-1 BE) shot 72 percent in the second half (21-29) as ND won its fifth straight game over the Hoyas.

Notre Dame freshman Brittany Mallory, a Baltimore native, tallied 15 points off the bench on 5-6 field goals while senior Charel Allen posted 14 points.

The Hoyas had been whistled for eight fouls just four minutes into the game. Notre Dame connected on 14-20 free throws in the first half but the pesky Hoyas hit 52 percent of their field goals in the opening period and never trailed by more than 10 points. It marked the 12th time this season the Georgetown hit 50 percent of its field goals in a half. GU freshman Monica McNutt (Suitland, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) hit a three pointer with 2:54 left to get the Blue and Gray within 38-36. The teams went to the lockerrooms with ND leading, 48-42.

Notre Dame led 72-60 with 12:04 to go in the game but went on a 12-2 run over the next four-plus minutes to extend their lead to 84-62 with 7:33 to play.

"Despite our foul trouble early, we still stayed patient offensively," said fourth-year head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. "We took what we could, getting good looks, making our shots and stayed within striking distance.

"Our transition defense hurt us after halftime," Flournoy said.

"Ki (Marlow) was terrific today," Flournoy added. "She was held scoreless last time out for the first time in her career and she took it upon herself to never let that happen again.

The Hoyas conclude a three-game homestand when GU hosts Seton Hall on Tuesday, January 22 inside McDonough Arena. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
