BOSTON -- Megan Duffy had all 14 of her points in the second half as Notre Dame overcame an 11-point deficit for its 10th straight victory. Notre Dame holds a one-game lead over Rutgers and Connecticut atop the Big East. The Fighting Irish (23-3, 11-2) play at No. 14 Rutgers on Saturday. Jacqueline Batteast scored 15 points for the Irish, who dropped the Eagles (16-7, 7-5) to 0-6 this season against ranked opponents. Clare Droesch paced BC with 10 points. Duffy's two free throws gave the Irish a 44-43 lead with 2:22 to go. After a BC turnover, Charel Allen's baseline drive pushed Notre Dame's edge to three points. The Eagles closed to 46-45 on Lisa Macchia's layup with 1:08 to go, but Teresa Borton's offensive rebound and layup off a desperation 3-point attempt by Duffy made it 48-45 with 33 seconds remaining. Duffy hit four free throws and Breona Gray two in the closing 24 seconds to secure the victory.
