Louisville senior Candyce Bingham had a career day in her last home game.
She scored a career-best 26 points, making 10 of 12 free throws to help No. 8 Louisville beat 15th-ranked Pittsburgh 75-51 on Saturday to secure the second seed in the Big East Tournament next week.
"It's a great way to come out, and most importantly I'm just glad we got the win," she said.
Fellow senior Angel McCoughtry added 22 points and seven rebounds.
Never miss a local story.
Though she's played her last game as a Cardinal in Freedom Hall, McCoughtry and her teammates are getting ready for the post-season. Louisville will travel to play Marquette on Monday and then head to the Big East Tournament in Connecticut, which begins Friday.
"We have a lot of work to do," McCoughtry said. "Because everything after this is one-and-done, and we don't want to be a one-and-done. ... This isn't the end. This is the beginning for us."
The Cardinals never trailed and put the game away with a 15-point run in the second half, after the Panthers got within three. Pittsburgh couldn't overcome its 25 turnovers.
"I felt that we were prepared for the press," Pittsburgh Coach Agnus Beranato said. "I am just really disappointed in our turnovers. ... They had 21 points off turnovers and then had 22 points off the glass, which is unacceptable."
