LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Shoni Schimmel scored 13 points and No. 4 Louisville made Jeff Walz the program's winningest coach in cruising past Ohio 90-33 on Thursday night.
Four days after an overtime victory at Oklahoma to win the preseason WNIT, the Cardinals (5-0) picked up where they left off to dominate Ohio in every category. Besides shooting 34 of 56 from the field to finish a season-best 61 percent, Louisville outscored the Bobcats 46-14 inside and outrebounded them 54-25.
Ohio (2-1) never got going offensively, hitting just 7 of 29 in the first half — including missing its first 14 from 3-point range. The Bobcats hit just 2 of 25 from beyond the arc and 10 of 53 overall (19 percent).
Bria Smith added 12 points, reserve forward Shawnta' Dyer 15 and Megan Deines 11 as every Cardinal scored.
Quiera Lampkins' 13 points led the Bobcats.
