Louisville Falls To UConn For A Third Time, 72-52

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Louisville women's basketball team will enter the NCAA Tournament with just four losses. That's the good news.

The bad news is that if the Cards want to win their first national title, they're probably going to have to knock off the team that has dealt them three of those defeats.

U of L's third meeting with top-ranked and unbeaten Connecticut went a lot like the first two, as the Huskies rolled to a 72-52 win to claim the AAC tournament title. The win made the Huskies the 14th team to enter the NCAA Tournament without a loss, an achievement they completed for the sixth time.

Shoni Schimmel was the only Cardinal in double figures, scoring 20 points but missing 18 of her 25 field goal attempts. The loss dropped Louisville to 0-13 against Connecticut in the Jeff Walz era.

Still, there's plenty of reason for optimism for U of L, which still has an outside shot at being a No. 1 seed in the big dance. In the more likely event that the Cards aren't dealt a top seed, they'll still get to take their shot at a return trip to the Final Four inside the KFC Yum Center, as Louisville is one of the four regional hosts for this year's NCAA Tournament.

Let's just hope that the Huskies get shipped somewhere else...or that the fourth time is the charm.
