    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Antonita Slaughter drained a 3-pointer to open overtime and finished the extra frame with six of her 10 points as No. 15 Louisville earned its first Big East Conference win, topping Rutgers 66-57 Tuesday night.

    Shoni Schimmel set a season-high for the second straight game with 21 points, none bigger than a jumper with 6 seconds left in regulation to force a 52-all tie that carried into overtime.

    Slaughter hit her 3-pointer 13 seconds into overtime, and Sara Hammond followed with a trey about a minute later for a 58-52 lead. Schimmel tacked on a jumper and Slaughter a free throw for a 61-52 lead with 40 seconds to play.

    Monique Reid added 18 points for Louisville (13-3, 1-1).

    Erica Wheeler paced Rutgers (9-6, 0-2) with 18 points. Monique Oliver, who has been battling a sprained left ankle, scored 10 points with nine rebounds in 36 minutes.
