Louisville won in the final moments against Duke 60-55 on Jan. 5. Junior Dana Evans made the go-ahead three-pointer with 28 seconds left in the game to secure the victory for the Cardinals.

Duke started off hot, leading the Cardinals 22-12 after the first quarter.

Louisville was able to bring their deficit to seven points by halftime thanks to a solid defense.

Even though the Cardinals trailed for the majority of the game, they were able to outscore Duke during the second, third and fourth quarters.

The Bluedevils struggled to score and hold onto the ball during the fourth quarter. They were only able to capitalize on four of their 14 shots during the fourth quarter and turned the ball over twice.

After the Evans three-pointer, senior Bionca Dunham made the two clutch free-throws to secure the victory for the Cardinals.
