Louisville tames the Wildcats 87-63

NCAA Womens Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Louisville vs Syracuse Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville WBB has not won in Memorial Coliseum since 1979, and for one quarter of play the Cards made Kentucky believe they stood a chance of keeping that streak alive. The score was 23-16 going into the 2nd quarter, but Louisville took a 47-25 lead into halftime and never looked back.

Louisville had two players with double-doubles: Dana Evans (11pts, 11asst) and Sam Fuehring (10 pts, 10 reb). Asia Durr had another hot shooting night and finished with 32. Myisha Hines-Allen was a fierce presence underneath and had 18 points and 9 rebounds.

After the game Coach Walz said that he was really pleased with his team’s effort. He said, “The 2nd quarter the difference was defense. It took a 7 point lead to 22.” He also said that Dana Evans came in and “gave us a big lift” when Jazmine Jones left the game early with foul trouble. Kentucky has been out-rebounding teams so that was a point of emphasis. Coach Walz said, “The first play [Sam Fuehring] comes up with an offensive rebound and a put back. She set the tone that this is what we’re gonna do.”

Louisville’s next opponent is Air Force on the road. They play Wednesday at 3pm. The game is not televised.
