I saw on Facebook today that ESPN has released their early preseason rankings for 2013-2014 women’s basketball season. Louisville is ranked #8. Hopefully they can ride the wave of this year’s run to the Final Four and keep it going next season.
You can read the entire article on ESPN’s website, but here’s what they wrote about the Cardinals.
8. Louisville: Jeff Walz proved just how talented a coach he is during the NCAA tournament and Shoni Schimmel demonstrated that she can play under control and lead. Antonita Slaughter and Sara Hammond could really break out if the confidence they displayed the past four weeks carries over. Playing in the new American Athletic Conference won’t be nearly as tough as the old Big East or the ACC, the Cardinals’ destination in 2015.
