Destiny Harden helps Miami Women's Basketball stun Louisville No. 4

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Miami lost a lot of ground to fourth-placed Louisville, looking wobbly, tired and on its way out of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Then Destiny Harden took over.

Triggering one of the most unlikely and stunning comebacks in tournament history, Harden scored the game’s final 15 points and hit a horned turnover jumper to stun No. 4 Louisville 61–59 during the quarterfinals of Friday night’s ACC tournament.

The second-seeded Cardinals led 59-44 with 5:44 remaining, only to see the seventh-seeded Hurricanes stage a frantic rally that abruptly turned what appeared to be a Louisville win into a savage upset .

Harden did it almost single-handedly, tying her career high with 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds for Miami.
