Destiny Harden helps Miami women’s basketball stun No. 4 Louisville

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Miami was down big late against fourth-ranked Louisville, looking wobbly, tired and on its way out of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

Then Destiny Harden took over.

Sparking one of the most improbable and stunning comebacks in the tournament’s history, Harden scored the game’s last 15 points and hit a turnaround jumper at the horn to stun No. 4 Louisville 61–59 in Friday night’s ACC Tournament quarterfinals.

The second-seeded Cardinals led 59–44 with 5:44 left, only to see the seventh-seeded Hurricanes stage a frantic rally that abruptly turned what looked set to be a Louisville win into a wild reversal.

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