Louisville has strong second half to beat Boston College 87-52

NCAA Womens Basketball: Louisville at Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville crushed Boston College but not before continuing its disturbing trend of starting a game slowly. The Cards were down 12 early to BC who is 2-11 in conference play. Finally they got going in the second quarter and took their first lead with a minute and a half to go. Boston College ran out of gas in the second half and Louisville dominated them from that point forward.

Louisville had five players in double figures led by Asia Durr’s 16. Sam Fuehring finished the game with 14 points and 7 rebounds despite having to sit much of the first quarter after coming up gimpy after stepping on a ref’s foot. Kylee Shook came off the bench to add 11 points, 4 steals, and 2 assists. After the game Coach Walz said that he was excited for her because she needs to make shots to stretch the defense.

Naturally Coach Walz was displeased with how his team started. He said, “If we don’t get get it figured out we’re going to lose.” He also told the players, “Whatever you do before the game....change it. It’s not working.” He said that they were supposed to be pressuring the ball in the first half and he’s not sure who decided it was not a good idea to do that. When they try to do something other than what they’ve been instructed in practice he tells them, “When you get your own team BELIEVE ME I will be calling you to play you.”

Louisville finishes this stretch of road games at North Carolina on Sunday. The game is at 2:30 on RSN.
