NEW ORLEANS - The Schimmel sisters certainly tried to summon one more magical performance for Louisville.
Against mighty Connecticut, Shoni and Jude Schimmel's "rez ball" repertoire of flashy passes and shots produced about as many misses and turnovers as points, and the Cardinals' stirring run of upsets came to an end. UConn's 93-60 win Tuesday was the largest margin ever in a women's NCAA title game.
With their eighth national title -- tying Tennessee for most all time -- the Huskies prevented Louisville from joining UConn (2004) as the only schools to win national titles in both men's and women's basketball in the same season.
Sara Hammond was the only Louisville player to reach double figures with 15 points. Shoni Schmimel finished with 9.
