HOUSTON---The Cougars came out ready to play in this one, at one point holding a seven-point lead in the first half, but in the end fifth-ranked Louisville showed why it's regarded as one of the top teams in the country, as it took down Houston, 93-52, Tuesday night at Hofheinz Pavilion.

Three different Cougars scored in double-figures, as Marche' Amerson, Yasmeen Thompson, and Demetria Foreman all went for 10 points on the night, making it the first time three or more Cougars scored 10 or more points in a game since Dec. 20 at Rice.

Thompson and senior forward Destini Texada each collected a game-high tying eight rebounds, while senior forward Te'onna Campbell also dished out a career-high six assists and recorded a game-high tying two blocks in the loss.

For Louisville (19-1, 7-0 The American), Shoni Schimmel led the way with 25 points and eight rebounds, while Bria Smith went for 13 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists in the game.

A crowd of over 1,000 showed up to support the Cougars Tuesday, and it was rewarded early, as it jumped out to a 7-0 lead after Demetria Foreman splashed home a three-ball with 17:48 left to play in the first half.

The Cardinals fired back with a 13-0 run of their own to make it a 13-7 ballgame with 13:04 left in the half, but the Cougars refused to fold.

Houston (4-14, 0-7 The American) shot 5-of-10 from three-point land in the first half while knocking down every one if its free throws and wasted no time climbing back into the game, as Amerson knocked down one of her two three-pointers on the night, while Thompson converted on a layup, to make it just an 18-16 deficit with 10:30 remaining in the half.

The Cardinals once again tried to pull away, extending their lead to 14 points with 5:20 remaining, but again, Houston responded, outscoring Louisville 13-4 over the next three-plus minutes to make it just a 34-29 deficit with 2:14 remaining in the half.

During that span, the Cougars nailed four shots in a row, including three trifectas, in what was one of the most impressive offensive stretches of the season.

Houston trailed just 38-29 at the intermission, and actually cut the Louisville lead down to just 41-33 with 18:03 left in the contest, after Foreman hit a tough jumper in the lane.

However, in the end Louisville's hot shooting was just too much to overcome, as it shot 21-of-33 from the field for 63.6 percent in the second half, while it connected on 54.7 percent of its field goals for the game.

The Cougars will get back after it this Saturday, when they host in-state rival SMU at 2:00 p.m. CT inside Hofheinz Pavilion.
