The 3rd seeded Louisville Cardinals women’s basketball team takes on 6th seeded LSU tonight at 9:30 in the second round of the NCAA tournament. On Sunday, the Lady Cardinals knocked off Liberty 62-42 as Angel McCoughtry led the way with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Candyce Bingham tallied up 12 points while Becky Burke dropped 11 points on the Lady Flames and the Cards won their 30th game in a season for the first time ever.
The LSU Lady Tigers have a tenacious defense, allowing only 53.2 points per game but they are going to have to turn on the offense tonight if they hope for some success against Louisville. The Cardinals shouldn’t have any problem taming the Lady Tigers though.
Prediction: Louisville 71 – LSU 59
