“She was just knocking down big shots,” Louisville senior forward Monique Reid said. “If she’ll continue to do that, we’ll go a long way in the tournament.”

Schimmel went just 1 of 5 beyond the arc, but the junior guard finished 9 for 15 overall. She also grabbed four rebounds with three steals in 36 minutes.

The Cardinals (25-8) will play No. 4 seed Purdue, a 77-43 winner over Liberty, on Tuesday night in the second round of the Oklahoma City Regional.
