Louisville Outlasts Syracuse in Conference Opener, 62-58

 Syracuse (6-6, 0-1 ACC) took No. 7 Louisville (12-1, 1-0 ACC) down to the wire but lost, 62-58, on the road in the Orange’s Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) opener Sunday afternoon in Louisville, Ky. Sophomore Emily Engstler (nine points, 13 rebounds) was a point away from her seventh double-double of the year. Freshman Teisha Hyman scored 12 points over 21 minutes, hitting the 50-point mark of her career. Syracuse is back in action Jan. 2 when No. 8 Florida State comes to the Carrier Dome.

“We had young-team mistakes today,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “Those are things we have to get better at and correct, because good teams are going to make you pay. It’s always tough to play here. They get a great crowd and have great atmosphere for women’s basketball so we have to give them a lot of credit, but that’s our schedule. We’re going to continue to play hard and at some point we’re going to turn this corner and start winning all these games that we’re leaving on the board.
