U of L WBB on TV Tonight…plus a great article

UL DukeTonight the University of Louisville Women’s Basketball Team will be a part of ESPN’s Big Monday.  They are playing at Duke and the game will be televised on ESPN2. Normally I follow the games on my SportsCenter app which is a convenient way to keep up with the score, but it’s not the same as watching it live. Of course, I would love be at Cameron watching the game, but it’s pretty exciting they will be on ESPN.

ESPN  also featured a great article on the women’s program at Louisville.  They are doing well in their first year in the ACC, but play both Duke and Notre Dame this month, which will both be good games.  This article talks about the growth of the program and where they are headed.

Louisville WBB Schedule is Out

20130209-191655.jpgSome good news came out this week for Louisville Women’s Basketball (or at least for those of us who follow them). The full schedule came out a couple of days ago for the 2014-2015 season. This will be Louisville’s first season in the ACC and the competition will be tough every night. The schedule is below.

The Cardinal Sports Zone had an article on the schedule release and carried the following quote from Coach Walz: “The strength of this league from top to bottom is remarkable. We know we’re going to be tested every single night, and that’s only going to make us better as we prepare for postseason. I think our fans are in for a real treat with this schedule.”

You can view the schedule below.

In other related (and really good!) news, one of the top players in the class of 2015 committed to play ball for Louisville. Asia Durr, a guard from Georgia, picked Louisville over several other schools and joins a very strong class. She is ranked #1 or #2 by many services. She will come to Louisville with these three commits: Erin DeGrate, Taja Cole and Brianna Jones. You can read more at Inside The Ville and Prospects Nation.
