Louisville bucks the Broncos out of the first round 74-42

NCAA Womens Basketball: ACC Tournament - Notre Dame vs Louisville Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville is nothing if not consistent. In many of their regular season games they started off slowly before getting in the groove, and it seems this trend will continue in the NCAA tournament. Despite Boise State shooting only 13% midway through the first quarter, the Cards only led by a few points. It wasn’t until Coach Walz began substituting that the energy on the floor seemed to pick up. Kylee Shook had 8 of her 14 points in the first quarter. She also finished the game with 10 rebounds.

Going into the 2nd half the Cards only held a 10 point advantage. Fortunately they quickly morphed into the team we expected to see. It took about a minute and a half before Louisville doubled their lead to 41-22 and from that point on the Broncos looked broken.

Sam Fuehring had a double-double with 14 points/11 rebounds. Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen both finished in single digits in scoring which is somewhat concerning, but Myisha did have 14 rebounds.

Louisville will play Marquette in the 2nd round Sunday at noon.
