U of L wins an ugly one vs. Temple

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Shoni Schimmel scored 21 points and No. 4 Louisville held off Temple 60-50 on Wednesday night.

Though Louisville (24-2, 12-1 American Athletic Conference) bounced back from Sunday's loss to No. 1 Connecticut, sloppy play throughout resulted in its lowest scoring total this season. The Cardinals shot 40 percent from the field (22 of 55), made just 12 of 26 free throws and committed 11 turnovers, a combination that left the door open for Temple up to the final minute.

The Cardinals survived only because their performance was markedly better than the Owls (12-12, 6-7), who couldn't take advantage because of their own ragged play featuring 17 turnovers, 1-of-9 free throw shooting and 38 percent shooting from the field.

Asia Taylor had 14 points and 12 rebounds while Antonita Slaughter added 12 points for Louisville.

Tyonna Williams' 12 points and Erica Covile's 10 rebounds led Temple.
