Thorne scored all 11 of her opening half points in the second quarter as she caught fire from beyond the arch. She hit 3 of her 4 three-pointers on the evening in the second stanza as the Lady Leopards erupted for 22 points in the second period. Louisville went into the half ahead by double digits at 34-24.

Adelman Spearheads Late Louisville Run

Lingenhoel Group - Arden and Lisa Lingenhoel - Cutler Real Estate AdThe Lady Leopards maintained their advantage throughout the second half and had an answer to any offensive spurts the Spartans strung together. Boardman closed the gap to as little as 46-41 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter. Louisville responded with a 13-3 run that was spearheaded by 8 points from Adelman and 5 from Thorne.

The Lady Leopards defense also held the Spartans scoreless from the field for over a five minute stretch as LHS took a commanding 59-44 lead with under two minutes to play. Louisville rode that advantage to the end in earning their third straight victory.
