Sugar Rodgers scored 26 points and No. 17 Georgetown routed Louisville 76-52 on Tuesday night.

Monica McNutt added 16 points and Tia Magee had eight points and 12 rebounds as the Hoyas (18-5, 6-3 Big East) won their fourth straight and ended Louisville's 10-game home winning streak.

Monique Reid led the Cardinals (14-9, 5-4) with 12 points and Shoni Schimmel added 11, but Louisville struggled to hold onto the ball. The Cardinals turned it over a season-high 30 times, leading to 34 Georgetown points.

Louisville controlled the first half and led 35-21 early in the second half before the Hoyas came to life, ripping off a 24-2 run to take command. Rodgers led the way, scoring 13 straight points for Georgetown during one sequence to go over 1,000 points in her career.

The Hoyas wore bright pink shoes as part of a ''pink out'' promotion and dazzled in the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 57-22.
