LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- All-American Alyssa Thomas scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Maryland advanced to the Terrapins' first Final Four since winning the 2006 national championship, holding off Louisville 76-73 Tuesday night in the Cardinals' home arena.

The Terrapins (28-6) reached their fourth Final Four all-time. They pulled off their second straight upset in Louisville with this victory much harder in essentially a home game for the third-seeded Cardinals, even with the floor covered with the NCAA logo.

Shoni Schimmel scored 31 points, missing a tying 3-pointer off the back rim just before the buzzer. Louisville (33-5) missed a chance for a second straight Final Four with the Cardinals' season ending shy of the national championship game they lost a year ago.

Lexie Brown added 20 points for Maryland.

The fourth-seeded Terrapins will play undefeated Notre Dame on Sunday in Nashville in a national semifinal.
