Shoni Schimmel led five players in double figures with 24 points as the University of Louisville women's basketball team decked Austin Peay 108-53 on Saturday night at the KFC Yum! Center. The Cardinals had the fewest turnovers of the season - eight - in the blowout victory.

University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz likes to joke that his team works hard "on throwing the ball to the other team."

And despite winning nine of its first 10 games, U of L was doing just what the coach said on turnovers, averaging 19 a game.

But that didn't happen on Saturday night.

The Cardinals had 27 assists on 43 field goals and just eight turnovers in a 108-53 blowout of Austin Peay. U of L is now 10-1 on the season.

Senior Shoni Schimmel led the way with 24 points, two assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes, while Cortnee Walton had a career-high 13 and Sara Hammond added 12 points.

Bria Smith added 11 points and four assists, while Emmonie Henderson had 10 points/.

Junior Jude Schimmel had a solid stat line of seven points, seven rebounds, seven assists and four steals for the Cardinals.

U of L scored 100 points for the third time this season — a school record — and reached 90 for the seventh time in 11 games.

The 108-point total ties the team for the second-most scored in school history. The record was 109 set in 1991 and '96.

The margin of victory was also the ninth largest in school history.
