Louisville upsets No. 1 Baylor 82-81

Posted:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Shoni Schimmel scored 22 points and Monique Reid hit two free throws with 2.6 seconds left to lift fifth-seeded Louisville to a stunning 82-81 upset of top-ranked, defending national champion Baylor on Sunday night in the regional semifinals of the NCAA women's tournament.
    
Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and hit a pair of free throws with 9.1 seconds left to give the Lady Bears (34-2) their only lead of the game.
    
Reid caught an inbounds pass near the baseline after that and went coast to coast before getting fouled by All-American Brittney Griner on her way to the basket.
    
Sims had one last chance to save Baylor's season after Reid's free throws but was off-target and late on a desperation heave.
    
The Lady Bears had been practically invincible for the past four months, winning 32 straight games mostly by double digits.
    
Louisville (27-8) tied an NCAA record with 16 3-pointers to pull off the upset.
