LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The UofL, UK and IU women all finished in the Top 20 in the final Associated Press poll of the season.

The poll was released five days after the NCAA Tournament was cancelled because of the coronavirus.

UofL finished 28-4 and is ranked #6 in the nation.

“Just a wonderful group of young women that put everything out there on the court for us, practiced each and every day, and unfortunately their dreams were cut short but they also were able to look at the impact of what’s going on in the world and realize, the right thing was done,” Cards head coach Jeff Walz said.

The Cats finished #16 and the Hoosiers #20.
