Northwestern women's lacrosse
Louisville dominated a lethargic Northwestern side to record the Cardinal's first ever victory over the Wildcats.
Previewing the Wildcats' biggest game of the year (Sunday, 11 a.m. CT, Big Ten Network).
In a battle of top-10 teams, Northwestern emerged victorious. It is their first in a run of three straight games against teams ranked in the top 10. Freshman standout Selena Lasota and senior leader Kara Mupo both had tremendous individual games.
Northwestern never really got going and lost to North Carolina 11-4 on Friday. It was the program's first ever loss in a national semifinal.
The Wildcats lost to North Carolina 11-8 earlier this year and their last three victories against the Tar Heels have been by just one goal. A ninth straight spot in the title game is anything but a given for Kelly Amonte Hiller's crew.
