TOLEDO, Ohio — Michaela Mabrey scored 11 of her 16 points in the first half, and top-seeded Notre Dame breezed to a 93-42 victory Saturday in its NCAA tournament opener against 16th-seeded Robert Morris.

Jewell Loyd and Natalie Achonwa added 15 points each for the unbeaten Fighting Irish, who are trying for their fourth straight Final Four appearance. Notre Dame (33-0) is a No. 1 seed for the third straight season.

The Irish will take on ninth-seeded Arizona State in the second round Monday.

Robert Morris (21-12) shot 27 percent from the field. Greek star Artemis Spanou, one of the top players in Northeast Conference history, was held to seven points and attempted only four shots from the field.
