Clemson women’s basketball lacks offense in loss to Louisville Cardinals

Despite their best attempt, the Tigers could not get out of their slump in last night’s women’s basketball game, ultimately falling to the Louisville Cardinals.
Led by Myisha Hines-Allen, the Cardinals had an impressive victory, finishing the game at 60-46. The Tigers’ offense was decidedly lacking both in field goals attempted and made, but their defense and free throws were strong. 
Hines-Allen led her team both in total points with 16 and in field goal completion with 7/15 (46.7 percent) compared to the team’s 23/58 (39.7 percent). The Cardinals currently have a record of 19-4 (6-2 ACC) compared to Clemson’s 11-10 (0-8 ACC).
Overall, the Tigers walked away with 13/14 (92.9 percent) free throws completed compared to the Cardinals’ 7/9 (77.8 percent). The Tigers only allowed 24 points in the first half, the lowest score achieved by the Cardinals in a first half this season. Louisville’s overall score was also the third-lowest it has achieved (and the lowest in a win) this season. Aliyah Collier and Kobi Thornton led the Tigers with 10 total points each while Ivy Atkism went 3/3 (yes, 100 percent) in her field goal attempts.
This game marked the women’s basketball team’s 41st straight loss in the ACC, but they will be preparing to break the streak in this Sunday’s game in Littlejohn Coliseum at 2 p.m. against Georgia Tech (13-7,2-5 ACC).
