LAS VEGAS (AP) - Skylar Diggins scored 24 points, and Natalie Achonwa added 22 points and 14 rebounds as No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 22 Texas A&M 83-74 on Friday night in the championship game of the World Vision Classic.

In a rematch of the 2011 NCAA tournament championship game, won by Texas A&M, the Fighting Irish also got 19 points from Kayla McBride and 15 from Jewell Loyd.

Kelsey Bone led Texas A&M (8-4) with 28 points and 10 rebounds. Courtney Walker had 12 points, and Kristi Bellock added 11.
