PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico — The University of Louisville women’s basketball team moved to 4-0 with another blowout. The Cardinals whipped Central Florida 94-73 on Tuesday night.

Louisville made short work of its future Big East foe.

Sara Hammond scored 15 points to lead a balanced offense and No. 7 Louisville routed Central Florida 94-73 on Tuesday night in the opener of the Hardwood Tournament of Hope.

Sheronne Vails added 13 points, and Megan Deines and Monique Reid each had 12 for the Cardinals (4-0). Shoni Schimmel added 11 points, five assists and five rebounds.

"Shoni played one of the best games she's played all year," Louisville coach Jeff Walz said. "It was really nice to see where we could win the battle in the posts."

Louisville took a 21-15 lead midway through the first half before using a 17-4 run to take command. The Cardinals led 55-33 at halftime, shooting 61 percent from the field, and cruised from there as Central Florida could get no closer than 19 the rest of the way.

Louisville outrebounded the Knights 50-25.

Briahanna Jackson scored 21 points and Gevenia Carter added 16 for Central Florida (1-4), which will join the Big East next year.

It was the third game in a row that U of L has scored 90-plus points.
