LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The University of Louisville women's basketball team cruised through its NCAA Tournament opener Friday afternoon. 

The third-seeded, and host, Cardinals clobbered Central Arkansas 87-60 in a first-round game of the Dallas Region at the KFC Yum! Center. 

Sophomore forward Myisha Hines-Allen tallied 25 points and snared seven rebounds to lead UofL (26-7), which is ranked No. 8 in both national polls. The Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year was 12 for 17 from the field and 1 of 1 from the free throw line. Classmate Mariya Moore added 16 points, four rebounds and four assists while freshman forward Sam Fuehring tallied 12 points off the bench for the Cards, who bounced back from their loss to Syracuse in the ACC Tournament semifinals with a 27-point triumph. 

Louisville will play sixth-seeded DePaul, a 97-67 winner over James Madison, at 2:30 p.m. Sunday in a second-round game at the Yum! Center.

Louisville shot 54.8 percent (34 for 62) in the win while holding the Sugar Bears to 32.9 percent (23 of 70) shooting.
