Lady Cards lose to Houston 92-80

MONDAY AT CARDINAL COUPLE:
.
-Louisville loses to Cougars by twelve.
.
- Party @ St. Pete a gala affair
.
Despite a double-double by Louisville junior Monique Reid (27 points and 10 rebounds) the Lady Cards lose for the second day in a row in the Duel in the Sun Classic in Las Vegas 92-80 to Houston.
.
Different day, same start for the Lady Cards who fell behind early in this one 9-2 and 19-8 at the 13:56 mark of the first half. The Cards did manage to go on a 10-0 run later in the half and gain a 22-21 advantage but Houston responded with their own 11-0 run to go ahead 32-22 and never looked back. The Coogs went into halftime up 50-37.
.
Houston steadily increased the margin thru most of the final period, leading 87-62 with 5:25 to go. A game ending 18-5 run by the 'Ville made the final look somewhat respectable...but the Cards were outplayed, outscored and outshot most of the way.
.
Beside Reid's heroics, Shoni Schimmel produced 23 points for Louisville and Tia Gibbs ended the double figure parade for the Cards with 10. Walz used 10 players in the contest and seven of them scored. Louisville did out rebound Houston 42-34 but the Cards did commit 21 turnovers.
.
Louisville shot 42.9% from the field (27-63) and 9-28 from three point range. Free throws were not horrible but they need to improve...with a 17-28 effort.
.
Louisville returns to the hardwood today against Nebraska.

The Renaissance Vinoy was the staging area Sunday afternoon for a gala affair with some Louisville notables. Pictured here, former rock star from the sixties Zoot Von Dolby sits with a young lady early into the event. Zoot wowed the 100+ in attendance until the Vinoy staff and management shut the shindig down for a previously scheduled bar mitzvah/barbeque.
.
Can't really go into all the details of the confab...we don't need any lawsuits...but rest assured that the food was plentiful and tasty, the beverages non-stop and conversation lively. Former Cardinal great Mario Urritia was one of the notables in attendance, rehabbing a foot injury but already excited about healing and trying the NFL camps next summer. Tom Jurich sure knows how to put on a get-together. The CARDINAL COUPLE designated attendees didn't even steal the silverware and serving dishes like they usually do.
.

It's always great to run into ex-Lady Card Valerie Owens Combs and she was her usual beautiful, friendly and entertaining self last night at the Vinoy. Still our second favorite Lady Card of all time. Drew Deener was also in attendance and if you enjoy him mornings on CARDS RADIO 790 WKRD, having a live chat with him when he's not on the air is twice the fun. Poobah Al Parrish majestically welcomed and entertained the attendees from his table and the affair went a little past the 4-6 p.m. allotted time.

An earlier party Sunday at the Tradewinds got a little rowdy when UofL and Southern Miss football players exchanged a few taunts and shoves during one of the competition events. Coach Strong, always the enforcer, came in and cleared the team out before things got out of control. Although CARDINAL COUPLE didn't have designated attendees at this one....credible reports back to us suggest the guys were in a dance contest and they did a little more than the 'hustle' and 'bump'. We've got the feeling these two teams don't like each other very much.
