LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Shoni Schimmel scored 17 points and Tia Gibbs added 11 and Louisville beat No. 17 West Virginia 57-47 on Sunday to send the Mountaineers to their third straight loss.
The Cardinals (16-9, 7-4 Big East) held West Virginia (20-6, 6-6) to 26 percent shooting and forced 18 turnovers to post their fourth win over a ranked opponent this season.
Louisville broke it open early in the second half going on a 12-2 run fueled by Schimmel. The freshman hit a pair of 3-pointers during the burst and added a nifty jumper from the baseline as Louisville built a 37-27 lead.
The Mountaineers got no closer than three points the rest of the way.
Madina Ali led West Virginia with 12 points but the Mountaineers continued to struggle offensively. Their 47 points were the fewest they've scored this season and marked the sixth straight game they failed to score more than 60 points.
Ohio State 83,
Minneapolis -Minnesota junior guard Kiara Buford scored a team-high 23 points, but Ohio State was able to pull away late and win a back-and-forth battle, 83-76, at Williams Arena on Sunday afternoon.
But the Buckeyes won their second-straight game behind 29 points from senior All-American Jantel Lavender, who became OSU's all-time leading scorer, passing Katie Smith's total of 2,578 points. Lavender now has 2,587 points during her career. Tayler Hill added 19 points, Ashley Adams had 13, and Samantha Prahalis finished with 11 for the Buckeyes.
Ohio State improved to 15-9 overall and 6-6 in the Big Ten with the win, while the Gophers lost their second-straight close game to fall to 11-14 overall and 3-9 in the conference.
The Buckeyes jumped out to an 8-2 lead, with Brittany Johnson making back-to-back treys from the right corner to spark Ohio State. But Katie Loberg scored for the Gophers, followed by a steal from China Antoine, who dished it ahead to Jackie Voigt for a layup to pull Minnesota back within two points, 8-6.
The story of the first half was that the score was tied seven times, but Ohio State was able to maintain a slim lead for most of the time. The Buckeyes' biggest lead was the six-point margin early in the half, and they later led by five points on four separate occasions.
