University of Louisville senior All-American Shoni Schimmel became just the fifth player in school history - men or women - to reach 2,000 career points. Schimmel did it on Wednesday night as the Cardinals beat Houston at the KFC Yum! Center.

University of Louisville senior Shoni Schimmel joined some elite company on Wednesday night.

The senior All-American hit a free throw early in the second half of an 81-62 win over Houston to reach the 2,000-point mark for her career. She's just the second U of L women's player to ever reach that mark and only the fifth player in school history - men or women - to hit it.

Schimmel finished the night with 15 points and now has 2,004 for her career. Angel McCoughtry is the school's all-time leader with 2,779.

The only men's players to reach the 2,000-mark plateau are Darrell Griffith (2,333), DeJuan Wheat (2,183) and Pervis Ellison (2,143).

"It's a great honor," Schimmel said.

Schimmel hit just 5 of 11 from the field and 4 of 5 free throws but she also led the team with eight rebounds and had three assists.

Sara Hammond led the Cardinals (26-2) with 17 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals, while Emmonnie Henderson added 12 points.
