LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Midway through the fourth quarter Thursday night Louisville coach Jeff Walz caught an errant pass from one of his players, so he gave in to temptation and put up a shot. The long-range jumper clanged off the rim, one of just a few misses by the No. 4 Cardinals on Thursday night.

Asia Durr scored 20 points in 23 minutes and all 11 Louisville players scored in a 91-43 rout of Virginia, thanks to a season-best 57 percent shooting effort.

The Cardinals (16-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) broke the game open with a 24-3 run to start the second quarter. Durr, a senior guard, scored the final five points of the burst as her 3-pointer gave Louisville a 39-17 lead with 2:20 left in the half.
