CHICAGO -- Arike Ogunbowale came out strong. Once she was contained -- and DePaul tied the game -- Brianna Turner, Lindsay Allen and the rest of the Irish muscled up and took over.Ogunbowale scored 13 of her 17 points in the first quarter to help No. 2 Notre Dame beat No. 16 DePaul 75-61 on Saturday night.The Irish (9-1) were coming off a 72-61 home loss to No. 1 UConn 72-61 on Wednesday night.Turner and Allen each added 14 points to help the Irish overcome 27-of-61 shooting. Notre Dame eventually won its 12th straight on the road by overwhelming a feisty Blue Demons team with tough coverage and beating them to loose balls.It was really important for us to rely on our defense, to come out and play hard, to battle, coach Muffet McGraw said. We did a lot of good things. It was really important as we havent lost back-to-back in seven-eight-nine years. I dont know what it is.No one ever had to remind McGraw that the Irish last lost consecutive games on Nov. 18 and 21, 2010, as Notre Dame improved to 24-19 against DePaul, one of its nearby rivals.Really pleased with the win, McGraw said. Its historically a tough place for us to play.And the perfect place to atone for the loss to UConn.We had a really good practice yesterday, McGraw said. Everyone was really focused.Jessica January and Brooke Schulte each had 19 points for DePaul (6-3). Schulte hit three 3 pointers, but the Blue Demons shot only 36.4 percent.Brooke had a nice long-game tonight and it was nice to get her scoring mojo back, coach Doug Bruno said. But were the kind of team where everybody has got to contribute.Were too small to be good with only one player.January fell to the court after rolling right ankle in the second quarter, but returned after having it taped.Schulte hit two 3-pointers in the opening 51 seconds of the third quarter to tie it 33-all, but Ogunbowale powered in a layup moments later to put the Irish back in front.Notre Dame put the game away with a 14-4 run in the third quarter after DePaul had tied it at 38.Turner, Allen and Mychal Johnson, who finished with 10 points, led the drive. The 6-foot-3 Turner scored 12 points in the second half, often by leveraging her 6-foot-3 frame.Turner is really good, Bruno said. We made her battle most of the game, but there was a stretch where we just let he have way too much.The Irish didnt trail after the opening minute and led 33-27 at the half, but Schulte hit two 3 pointers and Kelly Campbell followed up another at 4:25 in to tie it.After Turner and Marina Mabrey each sunk two free throws, Johnson nailed a 3 from the left corner to give the Irish a 45-38 lead with 3:26 to go in the third.Notre Dame took charge in the fourth with Johnson racing in alone on a layup to open the lead to 13 points with 6:49 to go.BIG PICTURE:Notre Dame: The Irish used their size and muscle against the Blue Demon all over the court. They outrebounded DePaul 48-35.DePaul: The Blue Demons finished a tough stretch, facing four Top 25 teams in their last five games. They lost three of four, falling to Baylor, UConn and Notre Dame, while beating Syracuse. But Brunos thinks the experience will pay off.We play this level of competition because we believe he have a way to find our way into the NCAA Tournament, he said. This will prepare us for it. Ive really put my players through a lot in the last 14-15 days.TIP-INS: Ogunbowale on her quick start Saturday. I think I needed to get back into my flow from the UConn game. Get back, get settled in.... Top-scoring Notre Dame freshman Jackie Young was on the sidelines wearing a walking boot on her right foot. The guard, averaging 9.7 points through seven games, suffered an ankle injury in Notre Dames 72-61 loss to UConn on Wednesday. .... Sophomore guard Ali Patberg was on the bench recovering from a virus. ... Despite the loss and low shooting percentage, Bruno thought his team had a better offensive fluidity tonight against a higher level of competition, but it wasnt enough.UP NEXTNotre Dame: The Irish take a break for finals, then visit Toledo on Sunday, Dec. 18. Its the second stop in a six-game road swing for Notre Dame, which doesnt play at home again until Jan. 5 versus Wake Forest.DePaul: The Blue Demons are at Temple on Thursday before returning to Chicago play at crosstown rival Loyola next Sunday. Nike Tn Shoes 2018 . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Burgundy .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. http://www.niketnultraplus.com/ . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). Nike Air Max Tn 2018 . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Black . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger is setting the tone for the Pittsburgh Steelers second half with two simple words.Follow me, said Roethlisberger after being asked how the team strikes the balance between urgency and calmness after a 4-4 start.Aaron Rodgers had R-E-L-A-X. Big Ben has this.After a brief pause, Roethlisberger -- whose Steelers face the 7-1 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in Heinz Field -- added that guys that have been here that know, no time or reason to panic.Roethlisbergers words could mark a turning point for the Steelers, who have been uncharacteristically lackluster on offense in the last month.Coming off a 21-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in which the offense managed 69 yards of offense through three quarters, Roethlisberger is placing the onus on himself to get things right. Through the first five games, Roethlisberger had 15 touchdown passes and the Steelers were 4-1. His torn left meniscus during an Oct. 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins contributed to the recent struggles, although the quarterback expects to undergo his first full practices in nearly a month.ddddddddddddSo how does he set an example for his teammates?Just watch me, he said. Talking to guys like you and just being calm like this. Its easy.The demeanor might be calm, but the Steelers game plan could be more aggressive. Coach Mike Tomlin admitted to a conservative, run-first approach Sunday in Baltimore, in part to protect Roethlisbergers knee. The offense came alive in the fourth quarter while using the no-huddle.When asked about that game plan, Roethlisberger said hes focused on the Cowboys.Whatever the coaches call for -- I play the game, they coach, Roethlisberger said.Heres betting Roethlisberger will have plenty of chances to back up his words.
