No. 5 Louisville holds off South Florida 62-54

Posted: Updated:

 

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Shoni Schimmel scored 25 points, five of them in the final seven minutes to help fifth-ranked Louisville hold off South Florida 62-54 on Sunday.

Schimmel's three-point play finished an 11-1 run the Cardinals (16-1, 4-0 American Athletic Conference) used  to take control for good after USF (8-8, 3-2) trimmed what had been a 17-point second-half deficit to 49-47. Sara Hammond began the spurt with a 3-point play and finished with 14.

Courtney Williams led USF with 19 points, but only had four in the second half. Alisia Jenkins had 12 points and led a 17-2 run that got the Bulls back into the game.

Louisville overcame cold shooting for the second straight game, building its big lead after settling for a 33-27 halftime lead while shooting 33 percent from the field and committing 10 turnovers before intermission.
