PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Shoni Schimmel scored 24 points, Asia Taylor added 19 and No. 5 Louisville beat Rutgers 80-71 on Tuesday night.

The Cardinals (21-1, 9-0 American Athletic Conference) extended their winning streak to 14 games. While most of the victories during the streak were by double-digits, Louisville had to rally for this win.

Louisville trailed 48-42 5 minutes into the second half before Schimmel and Sara Hammond took over. Schimmel's 3-pointer started a 22-9 run over the next 8 minutes. Hammond followed with eight straight points, hitting a 3-pointer from the wing and then a three-point play. Bria Smith's three-point play with 9:21 left in the game gave the Cardinals their first lead of the second half.

Schimmel's 3-pointer from the corner made it 64-57.

Rutgers (15-5, 6-3) closed to 66-63 on Tyler Scaife's jumper with 4:53 left, but could get no closer.
