No. 1 Louisville women’s basketball steals a win away from Notre Dame

It was a sloppy win for No. 1 Louisville women’s basketball, but what matters is it’s still a win. The 18th of the season, in fact.

The Cardinals (18-1) overcome a rocky game to beat visiting Notre Dame 71-65 Sunday.

Not much went right for U of L in this game, but good teams find a way to win even when it’s not pretty.

All-American Dana Evans, once again, proved she was the best player on the floor leading all scorers with 27 points, including a clutch three when the team had a one-point lead with less than a minute to play and iced the game with two free throws. Evans also joined the 1,500 point club. Kianna Smith was second on the team in scoring with 16.
