No. 5 Notre Dame women beat Duquesne

TORONTO — Natalie Achonwa joked that her Notre Dame teammates say she is from the whole country of Canada, not just from her hometown of Guelph or the province of Ontario.

The Canadian-born senior had 11 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 5 Notre Dame rout Duquesne 100-61 on Sunday at Ryerson University.

“Playing the national anthems for both countries was really an emotional moment,” Irish coach Muffet McGraw said. “I thought that was a great thing, and I’m really glad we were able to come and bring Natalie home.”

Achonwa, who has played on the Canadian national team and grew up in the area, was thrilled to share Notre Dame basketball with family and friends.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
