IOWA CITY Win or go home?

For the Louisville Cardinals, it was win AND go home.

Fourth-ranked Louisville shot 64 percent in the first half and crushed any upset hopes by No. 25 Iowa early. The Cardinals cruised in Tuesday's second-round NCAA women's basketball tournament game, 83-53, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Last year's national runner-up, Louisville (32-4) is rewarded with the opportunity for further advancement at home.

The Cardinals will face LSU (21-12) in a regional semifinal Sunday at the KFC YUM! Center in Louisville.

The Tigers upset No. 7 West Virginia, 76-67, Tuesday.

Iowa didn't lead all night, and retired at 27-9. It was the Hawkeyes' most wins under Coach Lisa Bluder and matched the second winningest campaign in school history.

But it ended in bitter, ugly fashion.

Louisville shot to a 7-2 lead, then Iowa got even at 7-7, 9-9 and 11-11.

But the Hawkeyes managed just one point in a 7:14 span, and that allowed the Cardinals to gain the separation they wouldn't surrender.
