Angel McCoughtry is touring Euro hoops this winter for her MKB EuroLeasing team and the results have been outstanding for the former Lady Card. In 13 games this year, MKB is 12-1 and Angel is the leading scorer with a 20 point effort per game. Not that we'd expect anything different for the best player in Louisville women's basketball history...but when you consider she's basically been going non stop for a year on the court now between the WNBA, Team USA competition, European league and even her own basketball camp this summer for young ladies in Louisville...it's a pretty remarkable feat. Maybe there's (2) Angel's out there...
.
Against Lotos recently, McCoughtry filled the rim with 32 points in a 88-76 win. She is one of two USA residents on the squad, the other being former MTSU and current WNBA standout Amber Holt. Keep up the good work, #35. Maybe someday we'll get a WNBA franchise here in Louisville (what else are they going to use the YUM Center for in June-Sept?) and Cardinal fans would have the chance to see you shake 'em off the dribble and pull up and bury the mid-range jumper again...

D'Ana McCarty has been named the BIG EAST Female Field Athlete of the Week off her performance in the Southern Illinois Fast Start Invitational. McCarty won the weight toss with a hurl of 72-10.5. It's the longest throw in the nation this year by over nine inches and the second longest throw ever by D'Ana. Look out for her on campus if a snowball fight breaks out.
.

Also tossing well for the Cards is sophomore shotputter Khadija Abdullah, who won the event at the Southern Illinois meet. Both McCarty and Abdullah qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships with their throws.

Slow start for the Pitino coached Cards last night but they roared out fast in the final twenty minutes and held San Francisco to just 10 second half points in the 66-35 romp in the KFC YUM Center. Louisville jumped out to an early lead in the first half but saw USF methodically cut into it and tied the game at the end of the first half. The Cards came out hot in the second half, though...and cooled off the Dons to remain undefeated on the season.
.
We ran into former Cardinal great Darrell Griffith at halftime...'Grif' still looks like he could hit the hardwood and light someone up for double figures. Same old Griffith, always a big smile and a handshake for those he runs into.

Guess who leads the NCAA in women's home basketball attendance? That's right, your University of Louisville Lady Cards!! Louisville is averaging 12,770 per game so far in their five home games. The numbers...boosted by appearances from in-state rival UK and nationally ranked Tennessee... are very impressive. And, Louisville women's basketball is a bargain if you're looking for a fun way to spend a few hours with the family. You might even see the CARDINAL COUPLE staff there and wouldn't that be just awesome!!
.
You'll get your chance to help keep the Cards up there this Saturday when they face Dayton at 5 p.m. The men play at noon that day against UNLV, so it'll be a busy day of activities at the KFC YUM Center. CARDINAL COUPLE will be spending the whole day down there watching balls bounce and we'll have a full post game report on Walz's women's efforts.

Our buddy Charlie Springer's site, UofL Card Game, recently received an attack from spammers across the water. Knocked him off line for a day or so...but he is back up and running again. It's a problem we have...as bloggers and web site owners. Hackers are vicious and will stifle and paralyze a site for no apparent reason. Some 'phishers' recently snuck into CARDINAL COUPLE and dumped a few "smut offer" replies in the comments section of a couple of column.

Charlie runs a good site and keeps it clean, informative and up-to-date. He didn't deserve this stuff. We're glad he's back up and running...we got our blogging and reporting starts over at CARD GAME and are eternally grateful for the wise council, editorial tutelage and sound advice he patiently provided us when we were just cubs...

You can access CARD GAME from here...just go to the left side of our sites and it is listed in the Sites We Recommend. Click and go. It's a good time over there.
