Sunday Cardinal Couple -- Tigers come to town


SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

- Dangerous Memphis next for #5 WBB

               *************GAME FINAL************

Shoni Schimmel hit nine threes in Louisville's 88-61 win over Memphis. Eight in the first half. Jenny O'Bryan will have the review in the Monday edition of Cardinal Couple

****************************************************************



The Louisville Cardinals host the Memphis Tigers on Sunday.  The tip for the game is 1:00 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU. 

The Tigers are 10-9 overall, and 3-4 in conference play, holding steady in the middle of the pack of the AAC standings.    The marquee win of the season for the Tigers was at home against Rutgers.  Memphis held on to win that game, edging out the Scarlet Knights, 74-73.  A puzzling win for the Tigers came against Houston (think cellar dweller here in the AAC, 0-7 in conference play) by a 48-40 margin.  Just how good is this team, and how much should the Cardinals worry?

The Tigers start a young team, 4 underclassmen and one senior.  They love to run their offense, and if they get hot early, the Cardinals will need to watch out.  When scoring 70 or more points this season, the Tigers are 8-1.  The key here for the Cardinals will be to come out strong defensively and not let the Tigers get in to any kind of offensive rhythm.    This team is athletic, and when managing their turnovers, can really put numbers up. 

Sophomore Asianna Fuqua-Bey is looking to extend her hot hand in this one.  In the last two games    She is also the leading rebounder for the Tigers pulling down 7.6 boards per game.  The Cardinals will look to keep Fuzua-Bey quiet in this one. 
She has been in double digits and looks to be more confident in her shooting.

The Tigers are led in scoring by sophomore Ariel Hearn who is averaging 17.8 pts. per game.  Breigha Wilder-Cochran rounds out the scoring for Memphis averaging 9 pts per game. 

The Cardinals, on paper, should win this game going away.  The slow starts from this team, though, could instill confidence in the Tiger players especially if they start out hot, offensively.  The Cardinals will need to come mentally prepared to hit the floor running.

Memphis is prone to turnovers.  With a strong defensive effort from the Cards I can see a lot of points in transition.  Likewise, Memphis likes to play uptempo offensively.  A good defensive effort should take them out of their offense and play to the liking of the Cardinals with transition scoring. 

A strong defensive effort, limiting turnovers while executing defensively, creating turnovers will be a recipe for a Cardinal win. 

The game is National Girl and Women in Sports Day.  Former U of L female athletes will be in attendance.  It is also Girl Scout day at the YUM Center.  Activities are planned for troops at noon, prior to the 1:00 tip. 



It should be a fun crowd in attendance on Sunday.  Get down to the YUM Center to enjoy the festivities.

  1. We just need to bring the Boom on the defensive side from the tip off. We have enough offensive firepower that it will take care of itself if we play shut down defense from the get go. It will also be a great dress rehearsal for Rutgers and UConn.

  2. Fast start. An opening 7-0 by the Tigers would be tough to overcome. This is a challenge to the WBB players who read the site. Bring it for 40 minutes today. Is it in you?

  3. Shame this rivalry has to end so soon after it got restarted. Our Tiger Ladies are a quizzical bunch. Handle a very good Rutgers lineup and underperform against a sorry Houston team. I fear we'll see a UConn type game. We will stay close for awhile but Louisville's better talent will eventually pull away. I'll be watching my ladies on TV down here in Memphis. Hope it's a good game and it would be great if we could come in and leave with a win. It probably isn't going to happen though. Like Louisvillle, we cannot seem to put 40 minutes of good play together.

    1. Thanks for checking us out, Bartlett! As I've said before, your Memphis WBB team is a quandry to me. Hope the team that played UConn and Houston shows up.
