    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- LaQuita Owens scored a career-high 30 points, including seven in overtime, and West Virginia rallied to beat Louisville (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today; No. 20 AP) 76-71 Monday night in both teams' regular-season finale.

    Olayinka Sanni added 21 points for the Mountaineers (20-9, 11-5 Big East), who trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half and 30-18 at halftime. Their win stopped Louisville's home winning streak at 21.

    Angel McCoughtry scored 33 points on 9-of-18 shooting to lead the Cardinals (24-6, 10-6), and senior Jazz Covington added 17 points.

    Louisville led 41-32 when West Virginia started on a 19-8 run to take a 51-49 lead with 7:15 left in regulation. Owens had nine points during the spurt.

    A basket by Owens and two free throws by Sparkle Davis gave the Mountaineers' a 67-64 lead with 7.5 seconds in regulation.

    Brandie Radde then hit her only basket of the game, a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left that forced overtime.

    Owens, who was 9-for-18 from the field, scored 24 of her points in the second half and overtime.
