Skylar Diggins scored 18 points and Natalie Achonwa added 15 to help No. 2 Notre Dame beat 13th-ranked Rutgers 71-41 on Tuesday night for the Irish’s 19th straight victory.

It’s the third longest winning streak in school history for the Irish. The 2000-01 team that won the school’s lone national championship and shared the Big East title had 23 consecutive victories. The Irish won 20 in a row the year before.

Notre Dame (22-1, 9-0 Big East) completed a perfect January for the fifth time under Muffet McGraw and the first since 2001.

Trailing 9-8 early on, Notre Dame went on a 22-6 run over the next 7 minutes to take control. The Irish hit five 3-pointers during the spurt, including three by Diggins.

They led by 17 at the half and blew Rutgers away in the second half.

Monique Oliver scored 17 points to lead the Scarlet Knights (17-5, 6-3).
