LOUISVILLE OH- Louisville knew all too well how hard their first game of the year was going to be when the schedule came out.  To open their new campaign they welcomed in Massillon Jackson who made it all the way to Dayton last season. Returning one of the best players in the state in future Wisconsin Badger Leena Patibandla, the Polar Bears are no joke.  The Leopards went toe to toe with Jackson, but in the end they couldn’t stand up to their strength and fell 62-44.

Taylor McCully led the way for the Leopards with 14 points. Courtney Barwick was also in double figures with 11.  Taryn Miglich contributed 9 points to the cause. The Polar Bears were led by Patibandla with a game-high 21.

Louisville will stay at home on Saturday as they host Green. Tip off for that game is set for 1:30.
