No. 7 Louisville Exits Stage Left As No 17 Syracuse Keeps On Dancing

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports
 

The zone Syracuse played made it tough for Louisville to penetrate. Asia Durr was able to hit four treys though as she scored a career high 23. ACC player of the year Myisha Hines-Allen showed up again with 27 points, 13 rebounds. The Orange however, got key play from Cornelia Fondren and Alexis Peterson once again brought her A game. Syracuse advances to first conference championship for the first time since 1988

Greensboro, NC — The No. 7 Louisville Cardinals battled the No. 17 Syracuse Orange, but the Cardinals came up short in an 80-75 decision.

“We did not come out and play like I thought we would,” Louisville head coach Jeff Walz told the media, “We did not follow a scouting report and, unfortunately, we’re not good enough to just come out and play without following a scout.”

Greensboro, NC — Myisha Hines-Allen wore her dancing shoes and lead the Cardinals to a 60-50 victory over Georgia Tech.

“We knew it was going to be a battle,” Louisville Coach Jeff Walz told the media, “They play hard, they play physical, and they’re a very good basketball team. We’d like to congratulate them. It was a battle for sure. There’s no question about it. And we knew it was going to be.”

The Cardinals won the tip, and Mariya Moore drove to the bucket for two. An early foul by Imani Tilford sent Arica Carter to the line to hit one of two and put the Cardinals up early, 3-0.
