Jude Schimmel of the University of Louisville is surrounded by South Florida defenders as she attempts to find an opening in a 73-62 loss to USF Monday at the Yum! Center. She would score nine points, her sister Shoni 16 points, and Bria Smith would add 12 of them.
“We started off the very beginning of the game the same way we did the second half, we had no energy we were on our heels and we let them get a run,” said Sara Hammond, who contributed 10 points and 10 rebounds for Louisville. “I guess they were looking for revenge because we went down there and beat them on their home court.
“You have to give them credit, they came out and played hard, and played with energy and got their guards going. We were just on our heels the whole game.”
And, oh yes, Andrea Smith scored a career high 35 points for South Florida.
UofL’s record fell to 21-6 overall and 9-4 in the Big East Conference. Attendance was 8,201.
