No. 14 Louisville women roll past Clemson 75-33
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) No. 14 Louisville cruised past Clemson 75-33 on Thursday night for the Cardinals' 13th consecutive victory despite the absence of leading scorer and rebounder Myisha Hines-Allen.
Hines-Allen, who leads the Cardinals at 16.6 points and 7.3 rebounds, missed the game to attend her grandfather's funeral in New Jersey. She is expected back for Sunday's game against Wake Forest.
Briahanna Jackson scored 13 points to lead Louisville (16-5, 9-0 ACC). Asia Durr and Sam Fuehring scored 12 points each while Mariya Moore had 10. Erin DeGrate and Cortnee Walton each had 10 boards as the Cardinals outrebounded the Tigers 50-27.
Gadson Lefft scored 11 points and was the only player in double figures for Clemson (4-16, 0-7), which has lost eight straight.
Jackson scored four seconds into the game and the Cardinals led from there, taking a double-digit lead for good less than halfway through the opening period. Louisville's largest lead was 44.
