The Cards, led by senior guard Shoni Schimmel, are seeded third in the tournament and have soundly defeated their first three opponents.  

"I’m just letting the game come to me.   I’m having fun.  It’s been a blast these past couple of games.   We’re just enjoying the game of basketball.  I’m having fun just playing what I love to do," Schimmel said Sunday.

U of L reached the tournament’s title game in 2009 and again last year, losing both times to Connecticut.

Tuesday’s tipoff at the KFC Yum Center is at 7:00pm.        

Game times are set for the men’s Final Four next weekend in Arlington, Texas.   Connecticut and Florida meet shortly after 6:00pm Saturday, followed by Kentucky versus Wisconsin at about 8:50pm.
