Reserves lead No. 4 Louisville to record setting victory

No. 4 Lady Cards defeat Murray State 115-51

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kylee Shook scored a career-high 21 points and fellow reserve Bionca Dunham also had career highs of 19 points and 16 rebounds to lead No. 4 Louisville to a 115-51 rout of Murray State on Friday.
    
The Cardinals (6-0) scored a school record for points in the victory.
    
Sam Fuehring scored a layup four seconds into the game to give Louisville a lead it would not relinquish, and by the time the second quarter started, coach Jeff Walz had given playing time to all 11 of his healthy players.
    
The reserves, who combined for 76 points, led the way for the Cardinals, who were up 57-22 at halftime. All 11 Cardinals got on the court by the start of the second quarter, and nine of them scored in the first quarter.
    
Louisville outrebounded its in-state foes by a 58-26 margin and forced 26 turnovers. The Racers (1-4) shot just 29.5 percent for the game.
    
Twice previously, the Cardinals had scored 109 points in a game. That last time occurred against Coastal Carolina on Dec. 18, 1996
