Schimmel and Taylor shine in U of L OT win

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Asia Taylor scored six points in overtime along with an assist that helped No. 4 Louisville pull away for a 69-59 victory over Florida State on Sunday.

Shoni Schimmel added a 3-pointer en route to a game-high 21 points as the Cardinals (6-0) outscored the Seminoles (4-1) 15-5 in the extra session of a tense game that served as a preview to the schools' likely rivalry when Louisville joins the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.

FSU rallied from a 46-38 deficit to take a 54-50 lead with 1:14 left in regulation and appeared to be in control before Louisville's Tia Gibbs made two free throws and Jude Schimmel made a key steal and layup to tie the game with 24.3 seconds left.

Louisville opened overtime with a 10-2 run including Taylor's baskets and Antonita Slaughter's layup before Schimmel sealed it with her fifth shot from beyond the arc.
