DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Arica Carter had career highs of 23 points and seven 3-pointers to help No. 3 Louisville beat Duke 73-51 on Sunday.
Dana Evans added 16 points for the Cardinals (14-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who never trailed and shot 41 percent while giving the Blue Devils their most lopsided home loss in more than five years.
Asia Durr, whose average of 21.5 points ranks second in the league, finished with 13 on 4-of-12 shooting. Louisville shot 50 percent from 3-point range while making 12 of them, forced 24 turnovers and turned those into 24 points.
Leaonna Odom had 16 points and Haley Gorecki finished with 15 for the Blue Devils (8-6, 0-2), who lost their first two ACC games for the second straight year and just the third time since 1992-93. Duke had its sixth 20-turnover game of the season and was just 2 of 13 from beyond the arc.
The Blue Devils trailed by double figures for all but 40 seconds of the second half, but cut their deficit to 50-40 on Gorecki's layup early in the fourth. Carter and Evans hit back-to-back 3s to start the 10-0 run that put Louisville up by 20.
Louisville: Even as they established themselves as one of the top programs in women's basketball, there was still one accomplishment that eluded them until now -- winning at Cameron Indoor Stadium, where they had been 0-3 and lost in each of their last two visits as a top-10 team. The Cardinals clearly kept their focus on the Blue Devils and not Thursday night's visit to No. 2 Notre Dame.
Duke: Things should at least get easier soon for the Blue Devils, who began ACC play by facing two undefeated top-10 opponents -- the first such stretch in school history to start the conference schedule. They probably will only have to take on one more -- at Notre Dame next month -- the rest of the season.
Louisville: Visits No. 2 Notre Dame on Thursday night.
Duke: Visits Georgia Tech on Thursday night.
