BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Bria Smith scored 16 points to help No. 4 Louisville beat Western Kentucky 74-61 on Wednesday night.

Sara Hammond and Shoni Schimmel each added 12 points for the Cardinals (7-0), who will visit No. 7 Kentucky on Sunday.

Louisville jumped out to a quick 18-2 lead before the Hilltoppers rallied back to 39-34 at the half. Jalynn McLain's three-point play with 13:58 left made it 50-46 but that's as close as the Hilltoppers could come as the Cardinals scored 14 of the next 16 points to take control.

Schimmel got the run started with a 3-pointer and Smith added six points during the spurt.

Chastity Gooch scored 21 points to lead Western Kentucky (4-2).
