Asia Durr, Jazmine Jones and Sam Fuehring each scored 12 points to lead a balanced offense for 3rd ranked Louisville, which used a 12-0 opening run to a 95-56 blowout of Tennessee State.
”Everyone can score on our team,” said Fuehring, who made 5 of 7 from the field and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.
The Cardinals (12-0) made 8 of their first 9 shots toward finishing 38 of 70 from the field (54 percent). They led 57-27 at halftime and by as many as 42 while dominating the boards 52-31 in continuing their second-best start in program history.
Bionca Dunham, Myisha Hines-Allen and Kylee Shook each added 11 points and Dana Evans had 10 as seven Cardinals scored in double figures. Ten players had at least three points.
”I think it shows we’ve got the ability to score from many positions on the floor,” Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. ”That’s what you want, you want depth.”
Louisville swept its four-game home stand against Tennessee schools by an average margin of 37.5 points.
Taylor Williams had five 3-pointers and 17 points and Tia Wooten added 12 points for Tennessee State (1-6), which had sought consecutive wins after starting 0-5. The Tigers shot 31 percent from the field.
Louisville begins a four-game road swing at rival Kentucky on Sunday, seeking its second consecutive win over the Wildcats after last year’s close overtime victory.
