More magic in the Cards?
Shoni Schimmel and the Cardinals became only the second No. 5 seed to reach the women's national semifinals.
Louisville will be looking for a little deja vu in the Bayou. The last time the women’s Final Four was held in New Orleans, the UConn women won the national championship and Connecticut became the first – and only -- Division I school to have its men’s and women’s basketball teams win the NCAA basketball titles in the same year. After beating Tennessee 86-78 on Tuesday night, the Cardinals joined the Louisville men’s team in the Final Four, marking the 10th time one school has had both its teams advance to the national semifinals. Next up for the women is a Sunday showdown against Cal. As for the men, they take on Wichita State in Atlanta on Saturday.
