UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Shoni Schimmel hit a pullup in the lane with 6 seconds left to lift No. 3 Louisville to a 60-56 win over South Florida on Sunday in the American Athletic Conference semifinals.

The Cardinals (30-3) will face top-ranked UConn on Monday night for the inaugural conference tournament title.

With the game tied at 56, Courtney Williams missed a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left for South Florida. Schimmel then drove up the court and pulled up in the lane for the go-ahead jumper.

Her sister, Jude, then stole the ball at midcourt from Williams and hit two free throws to seal the win.

Shoni Schimmel led Louisville with 17 points.

Williams and Inga Orekhova each scored 19 points to lead South Florida (19-12), which was looking for its first win over a top-10 team.
