7th ranked Louisville too much for Hawkeye Women, again

Posted: Updated:
Sara Hammond scored a season-high 19 points, Myisha Hines Allen added 16 and No. 7 Louisville ran away quickly from No. 22 Iowa for an 86-52 rout Thursday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Seeking a good tuneup before Sunday's Bluegrass battle against No. 13 Kentucky, the Cardinals (8-0) never trailed in racing to an impressive first win over a ranked team this season. Hammond's 9-of-13 shooting led Louisville's 35-of-66 performance from the field, its fifth 50-percent shooting effort this season; the Cardinals held the Hawkeyes (6-2) to 30 percent.

Freshman Mariya Moore had 12 points and six assists, and senior guard Bria Smith added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinals, who dominated the Hawkeyes 58-32 in the paint along with outrebounding them 50-38.

Bethany Doolittle scored 12 points for Iowa, which fell to 0-2 against Louisville, with both meetings coming this year
