Behind the play of Iasia Hemingway and Kayla Alexander, Syracuse shook off a poor shooting night and made just enough plays to beat Louisville Wednesday with a score of 54-45.

When watching the Syracuse women’s basketball’s game Wednesday night, it was impossible not to notice an Orange guard zipping around the court. She was seemingly everywhere at once, driving through players on her way to the net, throwing her body across the court to guard an open opponent. 

In a game of poor shooting percentage and low scoring, Iasia Hemingway’s grit was needed on both sides of the court. An exciting, back-and-forth game against Louisville, that Syracuse held on to win, 53-45.
