Louisville 81, Boston College 70

BOSTON - Dana Evans hit seven 3-pointers and finished with 27 points, leading No. 5 Louisville to an 81-70 victory over Boston College for its ninth straight victory.

Yacine Diop, Jazmine Jones and Kylee Shook each added 12 points for the Cardinals (17-1, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Jones added seven rebounds and seven assists.

Makayla Dickens led the Eagles (9-8, 2-4) with 20 points, and Emma Guy had 19 points and seven rebounds. BC lost its second straight after winning two in a row.

Boston College pushed Louisville a bit in the third quarter, trimming a 10-point halftime deficit to 49-43 on a 3-pointer by Dickens.

And, whenever the Cardinals seemed to need a basket or two to pull away, Evans came up with a 3-pointer. Her 3 from the top of the key made it 60-48 with 3 1/2 minutes left in the third. Louisville held a 64-52 edge heading into the fourth quarter.

Evans had a highlight-reel 3, making it 70-55 with just under 8 minutes to play in the game. She faked her defender, stepped to her right and went up off one foot, swishing the shot.

The 5-foot-6 guard was 7-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc, and finished 7 for 10.

The Cardinals had opened the second quarter with a 16-6 run, taking their first double-digit lead of the game at 35-24 on a 3 by Evans from the right wing.

Louisville led 40-30 at halftime.
