Arica Carter scored a career-high 23 points to lead the Louisville women's basketball team to a victory over Duke, 73-51. The victory was the first ever in Cameron Indoor Stadium for Louisville.
Nine of the first 11 points for the Cards were scored by Carter, who was a perfect 3-for-3 from three-point range at the time. She finished with a career-high seven three-pointers on 7-for-10 shooting. Dana Evans scored 16 and Asia Durr added 13 to round out the double-digit scorers.
Jazmine Jones pulled in a team-high 10 rebounds and Kylee Shook added seven, but Duke still won the rebounding battle 39-34.
The Cards raced out to an early lead that they never surrendered. Louisville and Duke traded baskets for much of the late first half with the Cards holding a 12 point lead at the half.
Duke attempted a small run early in the second half, but Jeff Walz's squad quickly silenced the Blue Devils and used a big fourth quarter to pull away.
No. 3 Louisville improves to 14-0 overall with a 2-0 mark in conference play. They will face their toughest challenge this season when they visit No. 2 Notre Dame on Thursday night. The Cards defeated the reigning NCAA Champions twice, 100-67 in the regular season and 74-72 in the ACC Championship.
