The University of Louisville women's basketball program are now playing the waiting game. The 10th-ranked Cardinals fell to Florida State in the semi-finals of the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, N.C. on Saturday afternoon.
Louisville (25-6) received 17 points from freshman Mariya Moore and Shawnta Dyer collected 13 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as the No.7 Seminoles pulled away for a 66-51 victory.
As they have done multiple times this season, the Cardinals fell behind early, trailing by as much as 24 points during the first half before trimming the deficit to just 2 midway through the first half.
"I’ve got to figure out a way to get some of these kids motivated to get going, to get the games off to a better start," said U of L head coach Jeff Walz. "You get down I think it’s 24 in the first half and then you climb all the way back and get it to a 2 point game and then you expend so much energy to just get back to that point that you have a breakdown."
Louisville is currently projected as a 3-seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament.
Despite the defeat, Louisville has notched 20 wins in five consecutive seasons and seven times overall under head coach Jeff Walz.
