CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Myisha Hines-Allen scored 16, on 6-of-10 shooting, and Mariya Moore recorded 11 points, five rebounds and five assists to help the 23rd-ranked Louisville women beat Virginia, 59-41, Thursday night.

Cortnee Walton scored 12 and Asia Durr added 10 points for Louisville (13-5, 5-0 Atlantic Coast), which has won 10 in a row.

The Cardinals struggled offensively in the early going, but took a 7-1 lead on a pair of free throws by Walton with 4:28 left in the first quarter as Virginia went without a made field goal for nearly six minutes.

Back-to-back layups by Aliyah Huland El and Lauren Moses pulled the Cavaliers (12-6, 2-2) within two early in the second quarter, but Louisville scored 14 straight over the next four-plus minutes to make it 26-10.

A layup by Hines-Allen with 1:29 left in the half pushed the lead to 33-13, and the Cardinals led by double figures the rest of the way.

Mikayla Venson scored 13, and Breyana Mason added 12 for Virginia.

Blount Eager to Assume Larger Role
The job will not be handed to rising sophomore Joey Blount. He'll have to earn it. This is head coach Bronco Mendenhall's program, after all. But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.
