Tia Gibbs hits 5 3s as Louisville women win 15th in row

February 3, 2014 

Plagued by early foul trouble and missing its head coach, South Florida challenged No. 5 Louisville early before falling to the Cardinals.

Tia Gibbs led host Louisville with 19 points — one of four players in double-digit scoring — and the Cardinals tallied their 15th straight win, tying the program's longest win streak set in 2006-07.

Assistant coach Jeff Osterman took over duties for head coach Jose Fernandez, who did not travel with the team due to illness.

Antonita Slaughter had 12 points and Asia Taylor had 10 rebounds for Louisville (22-1, 10-0 American Athletic Conference). Schimmel, third in the AAC averaging 18.4 points, had 14 and was 3-for-9 from beyond the arc.

It was Gibbs who provided the spark from long-range for Louisville, making 5 of 7 threes.

Men's highlights

Indiana 63, No. 10 Michigan 52: Yogi Ferrell scored 27 points, hitting seven three-pointers in eight tries, to lead unranked Indiana to an upset of visiting Michigan.

Indiana (14-8, 4-5 Big Ten) had lost three of four but led most of the way in improving to 12-2 at Assembly Hall. Noah Vonleh added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Hoosiers, who shot 54 percent.

Michigan (16-5, 8-1) produced a season-low point total as a 10-game winning streak came to an end.

No. 13 Cincinnati 50, South Florida 45: Sean Kilpatrick overcame an off-target performance by scoring 10 of his 18 points in the closing minutes, rallying host Cincinnati (21-2, 10-0 AAC) to its 14th straight victory.

Virginia 48, No. 18 Pittsburgh 45: Malcolm Brogdon made a last-second three-pointer to give Virginia a victory at Pittsburgh. Virginia (17-5, 8-1) maintained sole possession of second place in the ACC. Pitt (18-4, 6-3) lost consecutive games for the first time this season.

Around the nation

Oklahoma State: Freshman guard Stevie Clark was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of outraging public decency, a spokesman for the Stillwater jail said. Details of the incident were unavailable. Outraging public decency is a misdemeanor offense.

On Jan. 1,, Clark was arrested on drug charges by Edmond Police.

Oakland: Travis Bader set the NCAA Division I record for the most career three-pointers (461) on Sunday against UW-Milwaukee, surpassing the previous mark of 457 set by Duke's J.J. Redick.

Saturday's late game

California 60, No. 1 Arizona 58: Justin Cobbs hit a step-back jumper with 0.9 seconds left, and host California stunned top-ranked Arizona on Saturday night to hand the Wildcats their first loss of the season.

Arizona (21-1, 8-1), which had won a school-record 21 straight games, was one of just three unbeaten teams left in Division I. Now only second-ranked Syracuse (21-0), which outlasted No. 17 Duke 91-89 in overtime Saturday, and No. 4 Wichita State (23-0) remain.

Even worse for the Wildcats, Coach Sean Miller said starting forward Brandon Ashley appeared to have broken his right foot going for a rebound in the opening minutes.
