Florida St. tops Cards in women's ACC semis

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Ivey Slaughter scored 17 points and No. 7 Florida State beat No. 10 Louisville 66-51 on Saturday in an Atlantic Coast Conference semifinal.

Maegan Conwright and Shakayla Thomas each had 12 points for the second-seeded Seminoles (29-3).

They earned their first ACC championship game berth and matched the program record for wins after building a 24-point lead, then holding off the Cardinals' relentless rally.

Florida State will play No. 2 Notre Dame (30-2) on Sunday in the final.

Mariya Moore had 17 points and Shawnta' Dyer added 10 with 13 rebounds for third-seeded Louisville (25-6).

After pulling to 45-43, the Cardinals were held to one basket during the next 6½ minutes while Florida State pulled back away.

The Seminoles' 17-4 run was keyed by two 3-pointers from Conwright - including one with just under 4 minutes left - that put the Seminoles back up by double figures.
