Asia Durr scored 21 points and No. 2 Louisville bounced back nicely from its first loss of the season, topping Georgia Tech 61-44 on Sunday.
The Cardinals shot 38 percent from the field in Thursday’s 82-68 loss at top-ranked Notre Dame. But they put together a fast start against Georgia Tech and then used their defense to put away the Yellow Jackets after they made a charge in the third quarter.
Sam Fuehring had 13 points and a career-best 14 rebounds for Louisville. It was her second double-double of the season.

Durr, who went 7 for 47 from 3-point range in her previous six games, shot 3 for 8 from beyond the arc.
Georgia Tech (12-5, 2-2) shot a season-worst 26.2 percent from the field. Chanin Scott’s putback got the Yellow Jackets within nine with 1:59 left in the third, but the Cardinals held them to just two points over the next 7:11.
Freshman Elizabeth Balogun led the Yellow Jackets with 13 points.
