03/25/2017 12:22 AM
The #1-seeded Baylor Bears were too much for the #4-seeded Louisville Cardinals on Friday evening, ending the Cardinals’ season in the Oklahoma City Regional of the NCAA Women’s Tournament.
Baylor jumped out to a 25-9 lead after the first quarter and cruised from there, topping UofL 97-63 in their Sweet 16 match-up.
The Cards struggled from the field in the contest, only shooting 21-of-70 (30.0%).
The Bears shot 70 shots as well, but unlike the Cards, they made 35 of them for a 50.0% field goal percentage.
The Cardinals also struggled rebounding the basketball, getting out-rebounded 52-36 by the Bears.
Louisville guard Asia Durr led the way for Louisville with 21 points. Fifteen of those points came from three-pointers, where she was 5-of-10 (50.0%) from behind-the-arc.
Two other Cardinals scored in double digits, forwards Myisha Hines-Allen and Mariya Moore.
Hines-Allen finished one rebound shy of a double-double after recording 12 points and nine rebounds. Moore meanwhile finished with 10 points and six rebounds.
On the other hand, Baylor had five players score in double digits, led by forward Nina Davis, who scored a team-high 21 points.
With the loss, Louisville finishes the season with a 29-8 overall record.
Baylor will play #2-seeded Mississippi St. on Sunday with a trip to the Final Four on the line.
