Ogunbowale scored seven points during a 13-3 run that put the Irish in front 42-27. Notre Dame also was able to work the ball underneath to Turner, who hit all five of her field-goal attempts in the quarter.
“She’s so explosive and shifty,” Marquette coach Carolyn Kieger said. “She can shoot the 3, and then she can get by you in a quick second. I thought tonight, a lot of it came in the half court. She does such a great job pushing the ball in transition, but she hit some high-level pull-ups. She attacked well off the box and just played a great overall game.”
Marquette’s leading scorer, Allazia Blockton, who entered averaging 18.6 points per game, was 1 of 10 in the first half. She finished with four points.
“We had Brianna Turner on her when we went man-to-man,” McGraw said. “A little bigger. A little more size. Just the athletic ability, I don’t think she was able to get by her. We got her off to bad start and sometimes that affects a player.”
Ogunbowale scored Notre Dame’s first 11 points of the third quarter as the Irish boosted their lead to 67-50 entering the final period.
“She was unstoppable tonight. I’m a little disappointed,” Kieger said. “I thought we’d be able to give them a better effort than that. And I would have hoped to have been able to give them our best shot. We obviously did not do that tonight.”

For Notre Dame, Ogunbowale has topped 2,000 points, while Marina Mabrey, Turner and Shepard — whose total includes two seasons at Nebraska — have each scored more than 1,000. Junnior guard Jackie Young scored six points against Marquette, giving her 984.
