Lady Cards face Old Dominion Friday Night


FRIDAY AT CARDINAL COUPLE:


-Lady Cards play the Monarchs


-Final regular season football game today


-Thankful...
Jeff Walz's Lady Cards return to the road tonight to face Old Dominion. Actually, the team is already there and had a wonderful Thanksgiving together in Virginia...where they dined together as a "second family."
The Cards will need an effort from the entire extended kin today if they are to beat the Monarchs. ODU (2-1) narrowly lost to a very good N.C. State team in their last game 62-60.
.
.
They are led by senior Jasmine Parker (15.7 ppg.) and Alena Voronina (11.7 ppg. / 5.7 reb.)
Louisville (3-2) comes into the game after a poor second half at Xavier. The Cards, despite Monique Reid's 19 second half points, relinquished a 3 point halftime lead. Unforced turnovers, hurried shots and pourous defense contributed to the 12 point defeat in Cincinnati.
.
.
It should be noted, though...that Louisville's two losses have come against the #4th and #5th ranked teams in women's college baasketball. Neither were blowouts.
.
.
The Cards will need to revive the transition game andtry to keep Monique Reid on the court without foul problems. The junior sat the final 12:48 of the first half against Xavier because of whistles.
.
.
Louisville defeated ODU last year in the Cancun Classic 82-75. No TV for this one, but Kelch and Sanderford will have the call on CARDS Radio. Tip is 7 p.m.
.

.
Final regular season game today for Charlie Strong's football team. Whether they play in a post season bowl game or not depends on if they can beat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in Piscataway, N.J. this morning at the ungodly game time of 11 a.m.
.
.
Rutgers has been in a tailspin during the last several games. Whether Louisville can wake up the anemic offense enough to outscore the Scarlet Knights remains to be seen...WE'RE thinking the Cards prevail in one that may not see a lot of points by either team.

It could have been a lot worse. WE were sitting at a stop light yesterday on the way home after a hug Thanksgiving meal when all of a sudden, Sonja and I are violently thrown forward and the sickening thud of metal on metal greets our ears. Car behind us couldn't stop in time...rear ended us and basically caved in the back end of our van.
.
.
WE are OK. So was driver of other car. It could have been a lot worse if the vehicle behind us had been going faster. Fortunately, there was no one in front of us.
.
.
I drive around with the figurine of St. Paul hanging off my rear view mirror. He is the patron Saint of journalists and publicists. I like his name, too. I gave him a special thanks last night...so grateful that WE are able to produce this column this morning instead of laying in a hospital bed.
.
.
Slow down on wet roads, folks....
