Louisville's big second half beats Cal, 64-57

New, 2 comments

This time, it wasn't quite an upset.

After scoring big wins to make it to this point, the Louisville Cardinals got hot again to beat the California Golden Bears 64-57 in the first game in the Final Four.

Cal found themselves down just three points with 32 seconds left and put reserve guard Mikayla Lyles - their best 3-point shooter at 35% on the season - in the game to knot the game up, but she came up short on two attempts in the final half minute as Louisville hit the free throws to ice the game.

Louisville kept up the hot 3-point shooting once again with an above average 38.1% performance from beyond the arc, including a team-high 18 points on 6-for-10 3-point shooting from Antonita Slaughter.
