Air Force Drops 62-50 contest to #3 Louisville

Posted: Updated:

Air Force women’s basketball dropped a 62-50 contest to #3 Louisville Wednesday afternoons at Clune Arena.  Freshman Kaelin Immel led the Falcons with 17 points.

Playing as significant underdogs against the nation’s third-ranked team, Air Force held the Cardinals to its lowest scoring output of the season and 22 below its average of 84.6 points per game.  The Falcons also held the Cardinal to 39 percent shooting from the field and forced 22 turnovers.

“I thought we defended Louisville extremely well today,” Air Force head coach Chris Gobrecht said.  “We switched well on their cuts and screens and did not back down against a very talented, big and quick team.” 

After Louisville (14-0) jumped out to an 18-8 lead after the first quarter, Air Force was out-scored just 42-40 over the remaining three quarters of play.  The Falcons out-scored the Cardinals 30-28 in the second half and 14-9 in the fourth quarter.

Immel scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead the Falcons.  The freshman also made two of the team’s three three-point baskets.

Senior Dee Bennett added 12 points, four rebounds and a game-high five steals.  Freshman Emily Conroe scored nine and senior Cortney Porter scored seven points and dished out a game-high six assists.

Myisha Hines-Allen led Louisville with 16 points.  Dana Evans added 14 points.  Kylee Shook, a Colorado Springs native, scored four points and pulled-down a game-high 13 rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench.

“We’ve improved so much from last season and from the beginning of this season, Gobrecht added.  “The results aren’t what we’d like, but we’re continuing to improve and pretty soon, we’ll break through.”

Air Force returns to action Thursday, Dec. 28, opening Mountain West play by hosting New Mexico.

    Radon is odorless and tasteless, so testing is the only way to know if you have elevated levels in your home. Southern Colorado has even higher radon potential because of the amount of granite in the soil.
