Louisville Cardinals Upset Top-Seeded Baylor to Reach Women's Elite Eight
Monique Reid hit two free throws with two seconds remaining Sunday night to lead the Louisville Cardinals women's basketball team over the top-seeded Baylor Lady Bears.
The No. 5-seed Cardinals led throughout the game until the final seconds, when Baylor took a one-point lead and Reid hit her fateful free-throws to go up 82-81. Louisville held Baylor star Brittney Griner, AP Preseason Player of the Year, to just 14 points.
Baylor entered the game as the defending national champions and the nation's top-ranked team, having lost just one game during the regular season.
Shoni Schimmel had 22 points to lead the Cardinals in scoring.
The Cardinals will plays No. 2-seed Tennessee on Tuesday in the Elite Eight.
