OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Shoni Schimmel scored 24 points and giant-slaying Louisville claimed another big upset Tuesday night, beating second-seeded Tennessee 86-78 and earning the school's second trip to the Final Four.
    
Two nights after taking down Brittney Griner and defending national champion Baylor, the fifth-seeded Cardinals (28-8) built a 20-point lead and then withstood a second-half comeback by the powerhouse Lady Vols (27-8) before celebrating another big victory.
    
When it was over, the Cardinals huddled at center court and celebrated. Tennessee headed home with a third straight loss in the regional finals, failing to make the Final Four for a fifth straight year.
    
Taber Spani led the Lady Vols with 20 points, and Meighan Simmons and Kamiko Williams chipped in 12 apiece.
    
Louisville's win puts both of the school's basketball teams in the Final Four.
