Sarah Hammond is the front runner for Miss Kentucky Basketball for the 2010-11 season. The Rockcastle County senior is multi-talented...she'll probably play the wing in college but is an inside force for Rockcastle County. She can shoot the three, go to the boards with a vengeance and create for her teammates. She's also got a big laundry list of suitors for her college services.

Connecticut has offered. Louisville, too. Other schools wanting her services include Cincinnati, Kentucky, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Miami of Ohio and WKU.

Hammond is playing this summer on the Kentucky Premier Select team with high school standouts Kyvin Goodin-Rogers, Makayla Epps and Bre Elder...all from Marion County.


(Sara Beth Barnette, pictured
here, has signed with UK.
Rumors that UofL still
may be in the picture aren't
the case. She won Miss Basketball
last year..a choice that surprised many.
Personally, we believe she was only the
second best Sara in the state.)

Rogers, Epps, Elder and Hammond work very well together on the court. Hammond would be a sophomore at Louisville if Elder arrives and a junior if Rogers and Epps decide on the 'Ville. They represent some of the best talent in Kentucky girls' high school basketball...talent that isn't getting proper respect or acknowledgment from the recruiting gurus out there.

An interesting item is UK coach Matthew Mitchell's recent love and interest for Hammond. Afraid that you are way too late for this party, Matthew. Although most experts feel Louisville only has a slight lead in wooing Hammond's services, we here at CARDINAL COUPLE are supremely confident that she'll be wearing Cardinal Red and Black in the fall of 2011.

Got a nice e-mail from Keil Moore of Peach State Hoops about Louisville verbal commit for 2011 Quaneisha McCurty:

"McCurty is a very long 6'5" post player with her best basketball ahead of her. In the past couple of years, she has picked it up and started to show signs of aggresion and physicality on both ends of the court.

She is a good athlete who likes to shoot the mid-range jumper. She will run the floor for lay-ups and can post with her back to the basket...but might not develop into a dominant post player. Her biggest impact, in my opinion, will be felt on the defensive end of the floor where her length should create problems by way of shot blocking.

The big thing with McCurty for the Louisville staff will be making sure she buys into the roles the staff gives to her. When she is motivated she can be a very good basketball player. I think someone like Jeff Walz is the perfect fit for her because of his previous track record with players like Angel McCoughtry."

We appreciate the great write up and review from Keil and look forward to more reports about McCurty and the talent down south.

Speaking of Angel, the hits just keep on coming for McCoughtry and the Atlanta Dream. A 82-72 loss last night to the Washington Mystics on the road drops the Dream to 3rd place in the Eastern Division of the WNBA, 1/2 game behind Washington. Another case of the Dream digging themselves a deep hole early in the game and falling short with a late rally. Atlanta trailed 41-29 at the half and fell behind by 19 points in the third quarter before an Angel McCoughtry led rally got the Dream to within 7 points at 62-55 with 9 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter.

McCoughtry led Atlanta with 23 points. The Dream have now lost 4 straight...all on the road.

Sad to say, but it's been more of a nightmare instead of a dream for Atlanta since the All-Star game break. Plenty of season left for Atlanta to find their previous winning ways and get back into first place...but they're going to need more out of guard Iziane Castro Marquez and find a way to get rid of their horrible starts. They missed 10 out of their first 11 shots last night. No real three point threat on the Dream either...
