NORFOLK, Va., April 2 (UPI) -- Skylar Diggins did it all for top-seeded Notre Dame with 24 points, nine assists and five steals Tuesday in its 87-76 NCAA Regional Final victory over Duke.

Kayla McBride popped in 18 points and handed out seven assists for the Fighting Irish (35-1), who reached the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Final Four with a 30th straight win.

Natalie Achonwa (17 points, 13 rebounds) and Jewell Loyd (17 points) also provided key points as Notre Dame used a second-half surge to pull away, claiming the Norfolk, Va., region.

They will next face top-seeded Connecticut in the Final Four April 7 in New Orleans.

The Blue Devils (33-3) were paced by Tricia Liston with 19 points in the loss -- their fourth straight in a regional final.

Haley Peters added 15 points and 10 boards for Duke.
