The sophomore forward had 25 points and 13 rebounds - collecting her third double-double in the last five games - made her fist nien shots of the game. She finished the game 11 of 13 from the field.

Briahanna Jackson added 12 points on 5 of 7 from the field as the Cardinals hit 17 of 25 from the field in the first half and led 42-10.

The Cardinals are now 24-6 on the season - after starting 1-4 - and finish ACC play at 15-1. U of L lands the No. 2 seed in the ACC Tournament for this week in Greensboro and will play the Georgia Tech-Wake Forest-Clemson survivor on Friday at 6 p.m.
