Women's Basketball tipoff Luncheon today -- Tuesday Cardinal Couple
2014-15 WBB Tipoff Luncheon at Galt House today
You know Walz Ball is right around the corner when the annual WBB Tipoff Luncheon takes place.
This year it is being held at the Galt House in the Grand Ballroom. Thinking of popping in to hear Coach? You should be advised it is a sold out event.
Last year was at the Crown Pointe, the year before on the floor of the KFC YUM! Center. Attendance keeps rising and interest growing in the Louisville program.
The event begins @ noon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Coach will meet with the media at 11:45 a.m.
There will be challenges ahead for WBB @ Louisville this season. A new conference. Replacing three starters that all were drafted by the WNBA. Add Tia Gibbs to Eurobasket (where she's doing quite well).
The introduction of five freshmen that will be depended on to supplement returning stars Sara Hammond, Bria Smith, Jude Schimmel and three players who saw considerable action last season in Cortnee Walton, Megan Deines and Emmonnie Henderson.
Toss in the return from injuries by former starters Shawnta Dyer and Sherrone Vails...and this team is strong on experience.
We'll have coverage at the gala affair and a full report on the activities in the Wednesday edition of Cardinal Couple.
About a month until the opener with IUPUI in Indy. 32 days.
32 was the number Kala Faulkner wore when she played in 2007 and the number for current player "E" (Emmonnie Henderson).
