Louisville 70, Clemson 45

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Kianna Smith scored 17 points and No. 2 Louisville beat Clemson 70-45.

Louisville began the game with just seven players available, with regular starters Olivia Cochran and Elizabeth Balogun not among them. They came out during the first quarter and the Cardinals eventually had 11 of its 12 players ready.

Smith bounced back after scoring a season-low five points Thursday in a win at Virginia Tech. Elizabeth Balogun added a season-high 14 for Louisville (10-0, 3-0 ACC).

The Cardinals used a 15-2 run to build a 49-30 lead with 3:16 left in the third quarter. Clemson missed all 19 of its 3-point shots in the game.

The Tigers (8-4, 3-4) were led by Hannah Hank's 11 points. Clemson made only one of his 20 shots in the fourth quarter.
