MORE TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
ALEXIS MONTGOMERY HAS COMITTED TO LOUISVILLE!
Just got the tweet...Talented Oregon player is a Cardinal!
She's Mercedes Russell's best friend. Does it mean what we all hope it means?

The champagne is chilled.
The University of Louisville women's basketball team had their Media Day today at the KFC YUM! Center and Coach Walz, the staff and players were on hand to speak and answer questions.
|Jeff Walz addresses the media Tuesday|
-- Walz spoke of the effort that Megan Deines, Sara Hammond and Bria Smith had put in over the summer...commenting that he'd never seen three players put so much work into their games in the offseason.
|C.B. and Nicole set up chairs.|
--Walz has been impressed with the freshmen so far and indicated that Deines would see significant time at the wing. He also mentioned that they'd been bringing Cortnee Walton along slowly the last two weeks because of a heel bruise.

A lot of "new" media in attendance today and some questions asked that all Cardinal Couple readers have known the answers to for months.
We hit the floor about 12:30 and the players started trickling out onto the court after that. First out was Monique Reid, who was surrounded by the TV guys and patiently answered questions about her injury, her hopes, her role and amount of playing time.
I decided to take a different approach and went around and asked some of the players some fun and different questions. I think they enjoyed it. Here we go...
