02/12/2017 05:45 PM

The #12 Louisville Cardinals earned their second straight ACC win on Sunday afternoon, beating Boston College 68-43.

The Cardinals (22-6, 9-4) took an early lead over the Eagles (9-17, 2-11) and never looked back.

UofL led for 38:10 of the game, while BC never led.

Louisville’s fast start propelled the Cards to the after taking a 14-4 lead after the first quarter. Boston College was only 2-of-16 (12.5%) from the field in the first ten minutes.

Louisville’s Kylee Shook led the way for the Cards with a game-high 14 points.

Myisha Hines-Allen was the only other Cardinal to score in double-digits. The reigning ACC Player of the Year had 10 points, along with 13 rebounds.

There were three key areas where the Cards doubled-up the Eagles on the stat sheet.

UofL out-rebounded BC 50 to 25 in the contest. UofL had 13 assists in the game, compared to BC’s six. And finally, the UofL bench scored 33 points compared to the BC’s bench points total of only 15 points.

It was even more of a dominating performance for Louisville, considering both Briahanna Jackson and Asia Durr were each out for the game.

The victory is the second win in a row for UofL, after it beat Virginia Tech on Thursday.

The Cardinals have a week off until their next game, against North Carolina on Sunday, February 19. Tip-off against the Tar Heels is set for 12 p.m. ET inside the KFC Yum! Center.
