LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Turnovers proved costly for the University of Cincinnati women’s basketball Saturday afternoon as the Bearcats suffered a 64-45 loss to No. 7 Louisville inside the KFC Yum! Center.

The Bearcats were plagued by a season-high 27 turnovers and allowed a season-high 19 steals to the Cardinals during the loss. Louisville capitalized on the miscues, turning them into 23 points.

Despite the struggles handling the ball, the Cincinnati defense caused problems for a top-10 team for the second time this season. Louisville’s 64 points match their season-low scoring effort, a 69-64 loss to then No. 7 Kentucky on Dec. 1. UC previously held No. 1 UConn to their season-low scoring total of 67 points.

Overall Cincinnati limited the Cardinals to their lowest shooting effort of the season, finishing the game at 32.8 percent (20-of-61). The Bearcats shot just higher than Louisville at 35.6 percent (16-of-45). Louisville held a 26-14 edge in points in the paint and outrebounded the Bearcats 46-34, including 20 offensive rebounds.

Kayla Cook (South Webster, Ohio/South Webster) led UC in scoring with 14 points. The senior guard was 5-of-11 from the floor including 3-of-8 from the beyond the arc. Jasmine Whitfield (Crestwood, Ky./South Oldham) added double-digit points for the second straight game after going 5-of-6 from the free throw line. The sophomore guard also grabbed five rebounds dished out one assist and recorded one steal.

Jeanise Randolph (Chicago, Ill/Thornton Fractional North) played a large part in UC’s defensive effort, recording six blocks and 14 rebounds. The six swatted shots mark a new career-high mark for the senior and move her into sixth on Cincinnati’s all-time blocks list with 63. She is just five shy of tying Anne Stephens (2003-06) for fifth place. The senior forwarded also added three steals, and one assist to her stat line.

The Cardinals opened the game 0-for-9 from the floor, eventually shooting just 18.8 percent (6-of-32) from the floor in the opening stanza. However, the Bearcats were only able to put two points on the board during Louisville’s early scoring drought, allowing a Shoni Schimmel three at the 15:54 mark to give Louisville a lead on their first score of the day.

Later in the half, three’s from Whitfield and Cook helped to cut a Louisville six-point lead down to one with 5:24 in the frame. However, the Cardinals finished the final minutes on an 11-3 run to hold a 29-20 lead at the half.

The Cardinals picked up where the left off to start the second half as an 11-2 run put the game out of reach for UC. Louisville led by as many as 24 in the second half before winning by the final of 64-45.

The Bearcats will continue conference action Tuesday, January 7 when they welcome Rutgers inside Fifth Third Arena for a 7 p.m. tip off.
