Louisville sent Myisha Hines-Allen out in style on Senior Day with a robust 81-49 victory and a share of the ACC regular season title.
The slow starts that have plagued the Cards the last few games were not a problem this afternoon. A few minutes into the second quarter they were up 32-14 and even though there were a couple of stretches where Pitt had a run the game was never seriously in question.
Myisha finished in style with yet another double-double (18 points/16 rebounds). She was joined in double-doubledom by Sam Fuehring (13 points/12 rebounds). Asia Durr got her stroke back scoring 20 points.

After the team had cut down the nets Coach Walz said that Myisha “makes it look easy” and “it was nice to pull her out so she could get her big ovation.” He said that it’s really demanding to get a regular season title but “I’m fortunate I have the best staff in the country.”
