Last Saturday afforded a visit to the University of Louisville to take a look at the school and the basketball program. Syd is beginning to narrow down the schools on her list and this was our first look at Louisville.
Ironically, many years ago (before Syd was born), our family resided in Louisville. Other than passing the football stadium on the highway and going on to campus one time for a meeting, I didn’t really know a lot about the university. Obviously the men’s basketball program is pretty well-known and the women’s program has enjoyed success over the past few year.
The campus and facilities were quite nice. The KFC Yum! Center where the games are held is quite a venue. Compared to the gyms we sit in during high school basketball season, it is a monster. While the university doesn’t own it, they have very nice locker rooms and practice areas that are reserved just for U of L. We took in a volleyball game and got a chance to look around the Yum! Center.
This is the women’s locker room at the Yum! Center. The ladies also have a locker room in their practice facility.
This is a picture of the video room. They also had a training room and a place for the girls to hang out before and after practice. Very nice.
