Canes Fall to No. 7 Louisville
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami women’s basketball team (9-6, 1-3 ACC) fell to the No. 7/7 Louisville Cardinals (15-1, 4-0), 87-41, on Thursday at the Watsco Center.
“Louisville was a great basketball team tonight,” head coach Katie Meier said. “We had two really good days of practice but we had a lack of fight and that is something that will addressed.”
Redshirt junior Iggy Allen posted a season-high nine points, while freshman Brianna Jackson tallied 13 points to lead all Miami scorers. The bench shouldered the scoring load for the Canes, accounting for 22 of Miami’s 41 points.
Louisville shot 51.7 percent from the floor during the first half to take a 37-16 lead into the locker room. Jackson sparked the Canes offense in the fourth quarter, pouring in seven points in addition to hauling in three boards in the final 10 minutes.
Miami closes out its three-game homestand on Sunday when the Canes host Syracuse. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. at the Watsco Center and the game will air on ACC Network.
