Louisville soundly defeats MTSU 80-26

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

At one point in the second quarter a Middle Tennessee player got pinned under the basket with nobody to pass it to and she howled, “Somebody help me!!!” I think if you could’ve seen little thought bubbles over the MTSU player’s heads from about one minute into the game on that’s probably what they all were screaming on the inside.

The Cards (11-0) held the Blue Raiders (5-3) to single digit scoring in each quarter. It was 55-13 at the half. Everyone on the team played about the same amount of minutes. At one point late in the 4th quarter many of the starters had to check back in because the subs needed a breather. It was complete and total domination.

Asia Durr led the team in scoring with 19 (5-6 FG, 4-4 3PT) and Arica Carter led the team with 9 assists.

After the game Coach Walz said that he was really proud of his team’s effort. He added, “I feel bad for you if you have’t taken the opportunity to come out and watch this group play. We’re playing as good as anybody in the country. We’re unselfish with the basketball, and we’re fun to watch.” I second all of that.

Louisville plays Tuesday night at 7pm against Tennessee State. It will be the last time the Cards are in the Yum Center until they face Duke on January 4th. It is Ugly Holiday Sweater Night. The game can also be seen on ACC Network Extra.
