Louisville 89, Boston College 70

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Dana Evans scored 17 of her 24 points in the second half, Olivia Cochran added 18 and No. 2 Louisville used balanced scoring to pull away for an 89-70 victory over Boston College.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Cardinals (11-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who had to work into the fourth quarter to finally gain a cushion against the stubborn Eagles (5-6, 1-6). Louisville led 68-56 entering the quarter and used a 14-6 run over 5:12 for a 20-point lead on the way toward improving to 8-0 against BC in ACC play.

Evans began 2-of-9 from the field before making her final seven shots to finish 9 of 16 from the field and 3 of 5 from long range. Cochran made 6 of 9 shooting and 6 of 8 from the line to come within a point of her career high against DePaul. Hailey Van Lith and Kianna Smith each added 13 points, and Elizabeth Balogun had 11 for the Cardinals.

Cameron Swartz and Ally VanTimmeren each shot 7 of 13 to score 17 points apiece for the Eagles. They lost for the sixth time in seventh games, all in conference play. BC's lone ACC win came against Notre Dame on Jan. 7.
