Not taking any team for granted, not this University of Louisville women’s basketball team.
UofL defeating Wake Forest 78-54 Sunday before a crowd of 9,673 at the KFC Yum! Center. Fourteenth win in a row, improving to 17-5 overall and 8-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Wake Forest making the game physical early, hanging around trading baskets with UofL, trailing by only six points at the half.
Jeff Walz wanting his best shooters to take more shots, quit being so unselfish, needing them to take control. Urging them to shoot in the second half. And they would, with Mariya Moore leading all scorers with 26 points. Asia Durr would score 13 of her 18 points in the second half.
Myisha Hines-Allen and Briahanna Jackson added 10 points apiece for the game.
Next up is the University of North Carolina on Thursday at Chapel Hill, followed by a home game against highly-ranked Notre Dame at 2 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday.
