No luck for the Irish as #3 Louisville annihilates #2 Notre Dame 100-67

NCAA Womens Basketball: Notre Dame at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

It’s difficult to put into words what happened tonight. If you saw it you know what I mean. If you didn’t...then I feel sorry for you. Because this game was about as close to basketball perfection as you’re going to find this side of heaven.

In the first half alone Louisville shot 71.9% and 66.7% from the 3-point line to go into halftime up 56-28. That grew to 94-53 in the 4th quarter. It all looked so easy and effortless. The whole team was in the zone, but its two stars were on another level tonight. Asia Durr finished with 36 points (8-10 from the 3-point line) and Myisha Hines-Allen had 31 points and 12 rebounds. That’s a two-headed monster that’s hard to slay, and each player on the team played their roles to perfection to let those two players shine.

After the game Myisha was asked what she thought of Asia’s performance and she said, “Asia performs like that every night. It’s a blessing to play with her. I’m happy she came to this school.” Asia said that her teammates were the secret to her success. “They always do a great job of finding me on the court” and “Coach Walz calls some great plays as well.”

After game Coach Walz said that it was definitely not what he expected. He said, “It was an unbelievable performance offensively...we made the extra pass.” He added that now “everybody’s looking at us thinking ‘this is who we have to beat to win the ACC.’”

Next up the Cards get a little break before they travel to Pitt on the 18th. The game is at 7PM and can be seen on ACCN Extra.
