The University of Louisville doubles pair of Julia Fellerhoff and Rebecca Shine upset No .4 seeded Breaunna Addison and Pippa Horn of Texas in their first round of the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships at the USTA Billie Jean National King Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.
Field Hockey starts BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship play today against ODU in Storrs, CT at 7:30 p.m.
The good news? Louisville defeated ODU in September 3-2 at Trager.
The bad news? ODU hasn't lost since.
Louisville is #14 in the nation and got some nice accolades in their final season in the BIG EAST. Shannon Sloss was named BIG EAST Rookie of the Year. Erin Schneidtmiller and Alyssa Voelmle made the First Team All BIG EAST and Elisa Garcia and Sydney King were named to the second team.
Louisville finished the regular season 15-4. It's the most wins since 2001. The Cards were in a three way tie for the BIG EAST title but got the #3 seed in the tournament as a result of a point system developed for such matters. There is absolutely NO truth to the rumor that Geno Auriemma developed the system. Despite the fact that UConn got the #1 seed and the games are being played in Storrs, CT. (Whistling past the graveyard.) Temple was also invited to play as a #4 seed. They lost to Louisville, UConn and ODU by a combined score of 16-1.
Volleyball is in AAC action at the KFC YUM! Center tonight against Houston. The Wide Net Cards
go for their 12th. straight win in conference play.
