McDonald Grabs Double-Double in Loss at Louisville

No. 5 Louisville 45 34   -    79
USF 28  31  -   59 


LOUISVILLE, FEB. 2, 2014 – Early turnovers and a hot-shooting Louisville team sent the USF women’s basketball team to just its fourth conference loss of the season Sunday afternoon.

Louisville (22-1 Overall, 10-0 The American) out-shot USF 45%-38% in the second half, falling to the fifth-ranked Cardinals 79-59 in front of a crowd of 8,280 at the KFC Yum! Center.

Senior center Akila McDonald (Decatur, Ga.) recorded her second double-double of the season, grabbing 11 boards to go with 11 points, but Louisville managed to pressure USF into 20 turnovers, converting those for 21 first-half points to top USF for the second time this season.

The Bulls cut a 10-point deficit to four on Inga Orekhova’s third 3-pointer of the half, but Louisville responded, closing out the last four minutes of the first half on a 13-0 run to lead 45-28 heading into the locker room.

The Cardinals opened up the second half hitting five of their first six 3-pointers, extending the lead and closing out the Bulls.

Orekhova knocked down four 3-pointers for 16 points, shooting 50 percent from beyond the arc. Courtney Williams notched her 16th double-digit game of the season, scoring 17 and adding eight rebounds.

The Bulls travel to Memphis Wednesday, facing the Tigers for the first time this season.
