Hidalgo netted 27 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and four steals in Notre Dame's 98-48 win over Boston College, notching her fifth double-double of the year.

The freshman then brought the heat with 25 points, seven rebounds and seven steals in their 70-59 victory over Miami on a frigid Sunday afternoon.

Hidalgo tied two records with her Sunday performance. 

This was her 13th game of the season with at least 20 points, tying Beth Morgan Cunningham's single-game record as a freshman.

With seven steals, she also tied Skylar Diggins-Smith in eight career games with at least six steals.

Hidalgo leads the ACC with 24.2 points per game.

"I don't like to play in fear. And I'm obviously trusting in God, and I know he's brought me this far and I trust in my teammates and my coaches," said Hidalgo on concerns she will hit a slump.

The Irish are on the road at Virginia this Thursday at 7 p.m.
