LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Shoni Schimmel scored 21 points and No. 4 Louisville held off Temple 60-50 on Wednesday night.

Though Louisville (24-2, 12-1 American Athletic Conference) bounced back from a loss Sunday to No. 1 Connecticut, sloppy play throughout resulted in its lowest scoring total this season. The Cardinals shot 40 percent from the field (22 of 55), made just 12 of 26 free throws and committed 11 turnovers, a combination that left the door open for Temple up to the final minute.

The Cardinals survived only because their performance was markedly better than the Owls (12-12, 6-7), who couldn’t take advantage because of their own ragged play featuring 17 turnovers, 1-of-9 free-throw shooting and 38 percent shooting from the field.

Asia Taylor had 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Antonita Slaughter added 12 points for Louisville.

Tyonna Williams had 12 points for Temple.

NO. 7 BAYLOR 75, TEXAS TECH 58

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Odyssey Sims scored 30 points to lead Baylor past Texas Tech.

Sims had her 11th game of at least 30 points, making six 3-pointers and going 11 of 19 overall from the field. Nina Davis added 13 points and 10 rebounds to help the Lady Bears (21-3, 11-1 Big 12) win their seventh in a row after dropping back-to-back games in mid-January.

Sims left the game briefly in the first half with what appeared to be an injury to her right leg or ankle but was back within a couple of minutes.

Jasmine Caston scored 19 points for the Lady Raiders (6-18, 0-13).
