No. 12 Virginia cruises past No. 4 Louisville, 71-55; No 12 Notre Dame women win

London Perrantes scored 18 points and No. 12 Virginia used a 22-5 run to begin the second half and beat short-handed No. 4 Louisville 71-55 Monday night in Charlottesville, Va.

Isaiah Wilkins added 13 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks for the Cavaliers 18-5, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). The victory gave Virginia four consecutive victories against the Cardinals, including a sweep of the season series, and moved them into a tie with No. 14 Florida State for second place in the conference.

Freshman V.J. King scored a career-high 24 points for the Cardinals (19-5, 7-4), whose three-game winning streak was snapped. Donovan Mitchell added 16.

The Cardinals were without their second- and third-leading scorers, with guard Quentin Snider (12.1 ppg) out with a hip flexor and forward Deng Adel (11.1 ppg) and center Mangok Mathiang (7.1 ppg, 6.2 rpg) suspended for missing curfew Saturday. Reserve guard Tony Hicks also missed the game with a broken bone in his hand.

Louisville led 34-32 at the half but a 3-pointer by Perrantes got Virginia going on the big run to open a 54-39 lead.

No. 7 Notre Dame 85, No. 12 Louisville 66

Arike Ogunbowale scored 22 points and No. 7 Notre Dame ran past No. 12 Louisville for an 85-66 win on Monday night in South Bend, Ind.

The Irish (22-3, 10-1 ACC) used a 22-4 run to turn around an early first-quarter deficit, and led by 22 points at halftime on their way to their sixth straight victory.

Lindsay Allen added 15 points and her eight assists moved her past Skylar Diggins into second place all-time at Notre Dame.

Jackie Young had 16 points and seven rebounds, and Kathryn Westbeld contributed 14 points for the Irish.

Asia Durr scored 31 points to lead Louisville (20-6, 7-4), which has lost two straight. Mariya Moore added 18 points and seven rebounds.

After missing Sunday's loss at North Carolina State, the Cardinals' second-leading scorer and top rebounder, Myisha Hines-Allen, came off the bench against the Irish, but played just one minute in the first half and did not score.

Louisville cut the Notre Dame lead to 12 with 6:28 to play, but consecutive jumpers by Allen and layups by Ogunbowale with just over three minutes left kept the Irish cushion comfortable.

The Irish defense got their early spurt going by forcing nine Louisville turnovers in the first half. The Cardinals finished with 16 miscues, which led to 25 Irish points.

Notre Dame didn't commit a turnover until there was 1:22 left in the third quarter, and had 50 points by the break. The Irish had just three turnovers for the game.
