    McCoughtry's 41 points, 12 rebounds lead Louisville to win

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored a school-record 41 points and had 12 rebounds for Louisville (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) in a 93-75 win over Eastern Illinois on Friday night.

    McCoughtry, a 6-foot-1 sophomore forward, broke the mark of 40 points set by Jodie Martin against Cincinnati on Jan. 2, 1994. McCoughtry was 14-of-26 from the field and 13-of-16 from the line. Her foul shots with 1:37 left gave her the record.

    Louisville (14-0), off to its best start in school history, got 15 points from Helen Johnson and 12 points and 12 rebounds from Jazz Covington.

    McCoughtry had 29 points in the first half.

    "Actually, I had no idea I had that many points," McCoughtry said. "I don't look at stats. I just look at the scoreboard. I don't keep up with scoring at all."

    Ashley Thomas led Eastern Illinois (5-8) with 19 points and seven rebounds. Jessica Huffman added 12 points, and Rachel Galligan and Ellen Canale added 10 points each.
