LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Andrea Smith tied a career-high with 35 points and South Florida upset No. 12 Louisville 73-62 on Wednesday night.
Smith made 11-of-16 shots, including 5-of-6 3-pointers for USF, which avenged a 78-75 loss on Jan. 30 to the Cardinals.
Inga Orekhova added 13 points and Akila McDonald pulled down 10 rebounds to help the Bulls build a 43-34 edge on the boards.
USF (18-7, 7-5) led 24-22 at the break and scored the first six points of the second half. Louisville (21-6, 9-4) cut it to 30-27 on an Antonita Slaughter three-point play, but Smith and Orekhova answered with back-to-back jumpers and the Cardinals would get no closer from there.
USF shot 47 percent (25 of 53), including a 60 percent (15 of 25) clip in the second half.
Shoni Schimmel scored 16 for Louisville, which shot a season-low 30 percent (19 of 62)
Twenty years after winning gold in Atlanta, members of the 1996 U.S. Olympic team reunited and walked down memory lane while being honored by the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.
At Saturday's Women's Basketball Hall of Fame induction, this year's class -- including Natalie Williams and Jackie Stiles -- spoke about the ties that bind everyone in the women's hoops world.
Disappointed by being left off the U.S. Olympic volleyball team? Just reach the Olympics in another sport. Natalie Williams, one of six Hall of Fame inductees, was that athletically gifted.
