OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Look out, Tennessee: The giant slayers of the NCAA women's tournament are coming for you next.

After pulling off a stunning upset of Brittney Griner and top-ranked Baylor, No. 5 seed Louisville will meet the powerhouse Lady Vols on Tuesday night for a trip to the Final Four.

The Cardinals (27-8) tried to put the euphoria behind them as soon as they woke up Monday, leaving behind dozens of congratulatory text messages and turning their focus toward taking down Tennessee in the regional finals.

The Lady Vols (27-7) have the pedigree of an eight-time national champion. Louisville made it to the national championship game in 2009, while the Lady Vols haven't been back since winning the title in 2008.
