conference game since 2011, snapping a streak of 58 straight NBC wins. With the loss, the Lady Leopards are now 7-6 overall and 6-1 at the halfway point of league play.

Louisville was led by Kylie Zifer who batted 2-for-3 at the plate with a double & 2 runs scored. Emily Cantley also delivered a 2-run double and Grace Jackson cracked an RBI double.
