The fifth ranked Louisville women’s basketball will host the UCF at the KFC YUM! Center on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on WHAS (Channels 11.2, Time Warner 432, Comcast 207). The game can also be heard live on the Cards Radio with Matt Andrews and Adrienne Johnson, carried locally on WKRD 790 AM.
The Cardinals enter the game with an overall record of 16-1 and a perfect 4-0 record in conference play. Schimmel scored 25 points, five in them in the final seven minutes to help Louisville hold off USF 62-54 to remain unbeaten in American Athletic Conference play. Schimmel’s three-point play finished an 11-1 run that enabled the Cardinals to take control for good after USF trimmed what had been a 17-point second-half deficit to 49-47 with 7:06 remaining, but that was as close as the Bulls would get before Sara Hammond and Schimmel took over down the stretch. Hammond began the spurt with a 3-point play and finished with 14 points.
