WBB on TV Saturday
A nice treat for local University of Louisville women's basketball fans today. The Lady Cards game against Georgetown will be on WHAS TV. Tipoff is 2 p.m.
Makes for a great day of watching Cardinal basketball. The men play Pitt at noon and this one is a TV game as well. WHAS has the coverage also. If you are out of town and want your fix for Cardinal basketball, check out www.uoflsports.com. You can subscribe to receive all the broadcasts and enjoy the Cards while surfing the internet. My favorite way to follow the Lady Cards on the road (if I can't be there in person) is to tune in to 790 WKRD and listen to the Jim Kelch play by play and Adrienne Johnson's color commentary. Kelch does a fantastic job with the game action. Enjoy him while you can...he leaves Louisville in the spring to be the play by play announcer for the Cincinnati Reds.
Pictured above, Becky Burke leads the Cards in scoring this year with 15.7 points per game. The sophomore is the only true three point threat for Jeff Walz's team and has cashed in on 37 of them so far this season. Louisville (10-6, 2-1) will also need another big game from Monique Reid today if they are to defeat a well disciplined and defensive oriented Hoya squad. Defensive pressure after made basket will be essential to get the Cards transition game in full swing.
Georgetown (14-2, 3-0) is one of the early surprises in Big East Womens basketball this year. Freshman Sugar Rodgers leads the Lady Hoyas in scoring with 19 points a game and is one of the front runners for Big East Freshman of the year.
IF you like watching women's basketball, there will be a barnburner on ESPN tonight at 9 p.m. #1 UConn and #3 Notre Dame go to war in Hartford. I'm not sure if I'll be able to stomach 2 hours of Dickie Vitale calling a womens' game but Doris Burke will be on hand also to talk Dickie V off the ledge and add some sanity to the broadcast..
Remember, also that Notre Dame visits Freedom Hall Tuesday night to face the Lady Cards. It's a "red out" game and the Hall should be packed. If you haven't got tickets for this one yet, don't delay. It should be a great one to attend. If you are a season ticket holder and have a scheduling conflict for any of the UofL women's games...don't let those tickets go to waste! You can drop them off at Freedom Hall at Guest Services and they will be redistributed to needy fans who might not be able to attend otherwise.
Gear up, stock the cooler, get the wings and dip ready early...a great day ahead of us for Cardinal hoops!
