BROOKINGS (AP) — Asia Durr scored 18 of her 20 points in the second half and No. 4 Louisville overcame an eight-point halftime deficit to beat South Dakota State 68-64 on Sunday at Frost Arena in Brookings.
Arica Carter added 14 points, and Myisha Hines-Allen had 10 for the Cardinals (8-0) in their lowest-scoring and worst-shooting game of the season. Last season, Louisville won the matchup by 53 points.
Mitchell native Macy Miller and Letcher native Myah Selland both led the Jackrabbits (6-2) with 14 points and seven rebounds.
Louisville took its first lead of the game in the third quarter on Durr's basket that made it 37-36. But South Dakota State (6-2) responded and got the lead back to five. Louisville ended the quarter on a 7-2 run to tie it at 46 going into the final frame.
The Cardinals built the lead to five on Sam Fuehring's basket with just over six minutes to play. But the Jackrabbits again got it to two when Miller scored to make it 64-62. South Dakota State had the ball with a minute to play, but was unable to get any closer.
South Dakota State hosts Oklahoma at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Frost Arena.
