11/06/2016 05:13 PM

The #5 Louisville women’s basketball team started fast and never looked back in its only exhibition game of the season.

The Cards won the match-up against Lindsey Wilson College 97-50.

UofL jumped out to a quick 34-11 by the end of the first quarter, courtesy of its field goal shooting. The Cardinals went 13-18 (72%) from the field in the first ten minutes. Four of those field goals were three-pointers.

The Cards cooled down a little bit as the game went on, but still finished the game going 39-71 (54.9%) from the field.

Louisville guard Asia Durr led all scorers with 19 points. She was 7-10 (70%) from the field, including 5-8 (62.5%) from three-point range.

Three other Cardinals scored in double-digits on Sunday. Reigning ACC Player of the Year Myisha Hines-Allen and freshman guard Jazmine Jones each scored 15 points during the game. Meanwhile, freshman center Ciera Johnson tacked on 14 points.

Despite dominating almost every aspect of the stat sheet, the Cards did struggle with their free throw shooting. UofL went 13-26 (50%) from the charity stripe. After the game, head coach Jeff Walz did say his team has to get better at free throw shooting.

The Cardinals open their their regular season this Friday at UT Martin. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. ET in Martin, TN.
