U of L women knock off Georgia Tech in ACC tourney

Posted: Updated:

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Myisha Hines-Allen had 22 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 7 Louisville beat Georgia Tech 60-50 in Friday's quarterfinals at the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

 Hines-Allen didn't get a lot of help from her teammates, with the rest of the second-seeded Cardinals (25-6) managing to shoot a combined 28 percent (12 for 43). But they frustrated the cold-shooting Yellow Jackets (19-12) just about all night, taking a 10-point halftime lead and never letting Georgia Tech closer than six again.

 Second-leading scorer Mariya Moore struggled, finishing with 11 points on 1-for-12 shooting. But the Cardinals had enough balance with eight players scoring to stay in front, winning their seventh straight.

ACC leading scorer Aaliyah Whiteside finished with 20 points to lead seventh-seeded Georgia Tech, but it came on a 6-for-20 shooting performance. The Yellow Jackets shot just 31 percent, including 2 for 10 from 3-point range.
