BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO)-- Asia Durr scored 33 points to lift No. 5 Louisville past Western Kentucky 102-80 Tuesday in E.A. Diddle Arena.

The reigning ACC Player of the Year went 7-15 from the three-point line in 21 minutes of action.

The win gave Louisville head coach Jeff Walz his 300th coaching victory at the same place he got his coaching start as a Western Kentucky graduate assistant in 1996-97.

Tuesday's game also marked the coaching debut of former assistant Greg Collins and he watched as his Lady Toppers put together two runs in the first half to cut the lead to single digits led by Alexis Brewer and Dee Givens who scored 22 and 18 points, respectively.

WKU is on the road to face Oklahoma at 7 p.m. CT Tuesday.
