LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP/WMOT) — The Middle Tennessee State Lady Raiders lost their first round NCAA tourney game Sunday afternoon.

The MTSU women fell to Louisville 74-49.

Kortni Jones led Middle Tennessee with 14 points, and Icelyn Elie added 13. Ebony Rowe had her 21st double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

MTSU Coach Rick Insell is already looking ahead.

“We’ll have three that’ll be graduating, then ten will be coming back and we’ve got four incoming freshmen right now. So we’ll reload and we’ll have another good team next year.”

MTSU is moving to Conference USA this summer. Insell says making plans to scout the new competition is at the top of his to-do list this week.

Louisville now advances to play No. 4 seed Purdue Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.
