LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Dana Evans understands her role for No. 4 Louisville is to provide a spark off the bench. The sophomore guard did that and more Saturday.

Evans scored a career-high 21 points and tied her career best with four steals to lead the Cardinals to a 92-59 victory over Northern Kentucky. It's the seventh time in Louisville's last eight games that the former McDonald's All-American reached double figures.

Coach Jeff Walz said Evans could easily start for the Cardinals (11-0), which lost just one player from last year's Final Four squad. However, he added that he has a senior point guard in Arica Carter, who starts and keeps things steady.
