MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Mariya Moore scored 27 points, and the fifth-ranked Louisville Cardinals never trailed beating Middle Tennessee 91-72 on Wednesday night.

This was Louisville's first visit to Middle Tennessee since 2008, and the Cardinals had little trouble improving to 5-1 in this series.

Ciera Johnson opened with a layup for the Cardinals (3-0), and Alex Johnson hit a short jumper to tie it up at 2. That was as close as Middle Tennessee (0-2) from Conference USA would get as Louisville shot 67 percent taking a 22-9 lead after the first quarter.

Asia Durr also had 22 points, and Myisha Hines-Allen added 17 for Louisville.

Ty Petty led Middle Tennessee with 27 points, and Alex Johnson had 13.
