Hines-Allen Leads #6 Cards to Seventh Straight Win

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Myisha Hines-Allen had 20 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 6 Louisville rally in the second half to beat Wake Forest 79-68 on Sunday.

Mariya Moore added 16 points, Bria Smith 13 and Shawnta Dyer 10 for the Cardinals (15-1, 3-0 ACC), who were down 11 at the half before earning their seventh straight.

Dearica Hamby had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Deacons (9-8, 0-3), who shot 55.6 percent in the first half to take a 42-31 lead.

But Louisville's defense forced Wake Forest into 13 second-half turnovers, leading to 14 points, and the Cardinals made 15 of 23 from the free throw line.

That allowed Louisville to rally, tying the score at 59-59 on Dyer's layup with 8:39 left. The Cardinals took the lead for good 42 seconds later on Hines-Allen's layup.

Amber Campbell added 15 points and Nicole Floyd 11 for the Deacons, who have lost three straight.
