Louisville trailed USF 47-39 with 10:17 to play following a steal by Inga Orekhova that led to Jasmine Wynne’s layup. The Cardinals then swung the game with a 15-0 run during the next four minutes, highlighted by two three-point plays and a 25-footer from Schimmel. Shelby Harper’s loose ball rebound in the left corner and subsequent drive and layup gave the Cardinals the lead for good at 49-47 with 8:33 to play.
Down 60-57 with 33 seconds left, South Florida missed two chances to tie it, including a 3-pointer by Orekhova. Sheronne Vails’ two free throws with 15.7 seconds to play and a Harper rebound on the next possession sealed the game.
