Schimmel lifts Louisville to 88-61 rout of Memphis

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Shoni Schimmel scored 29 points, hitting a school-record nine 3-pointers, to lift No. 5 Louisville to an 88-61 win over Memphis on Sunday.


Schimmel was 9 of 12 from the three-point line and 10 of 16 overall passing her own record of eight 3s set against South Florida on Jan. 30, 2013.

Emmonnie Henderson added 14 for Louisville (20-1, 8-0 American Athletic Conference), which has won 13 straight game.

Ariel Hearn led Memphis (10-10, 3-5) with 15 points.

Louisville got off to a slow start and missed eight of its first 11 shot attempts. The Tigers tied it at 15 midway through the half on a basket by Devin Mack. That's when Schimmel, who missed her first four shots, embarked on a streak from beyond the arc. The senior drilled six 3-pointers in a span of four minutes to lift Louisville to a 35-19 lead with 3:58 left in the first half.
