LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville coach Jeff Walz and Virginia's Tina Thompson came out of Thursday night's game with identical takeaways.

Dana Evans scored 21 points and the fifth-ranked Cardinals beat the Cavaliers 71-56 in a game where both teams suffered through prolonged slumps.

"That's kind of been our M.O. this entire season," Walz said. "We get it (the lead) up to 20, and we just can't finish it off."
