CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Monique Reid scored 14 points in just 10 minutes, and No. 8 Louisville routed Austin Peay 90-52 Thursday night in the Cardinals' first road game this season.

Shoni Schimmel and Shawnta' Dyer each added 12 points for Louisville (3-0). The Cardinals (3-0) trailed only 2-0 and took the lead for good on a couple 3-pointers by Antonita Slaughter.
Leslie Martinez had 14 points for Austin Peay (0-2). The Lady Govs from the Ohio Valley Conference were hosting a Top 10 team for the first time and led off the opening bucket by Kaitlyn Hill. They went cold after pulling to 30-27, and Louisville took control with a 14-0 run.
