Women’s basketball cruises past Miami (OH) in home opener

By Matt Bradshaw —

Women’s basketball (6-0) returned home from a six-game road trip in victorious fashion. U of L cruised past Miami (Ohio) 95-73 under a loud and proud crowd at the KFC Yum! Center on Monday night.

Six players scored in double-figures in the home opener as the No. 5 Cardinals proved they have lost none of their fire power from last season. The RedHawks (4-1) trailed by fifteen points in the first quarter, shooting only 25 percent from the field, and played catch-up the rest of the contest.

Louisville shot 51.5 percent from the field. Head coach Jeff Walz’s backcourt controlled the floor against their opponent with a season-high 16 steals.

Junior Kylee Shook led the offense with 17 points and six rebounds off the bench. Senior Asia Durr added 16 points, junior Bionca Dunham 15 points and sophomore Dana Evans 14 points.

Senior Sam Fuehring and junior Jazmine Jones recorded 10 points each.

Women’s basketball hosts Nebraska on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
