Will UofL WBB Have to travel for 1st and 2nd round games?
It's way too early to be looking ahead to the 2015 NCAA Basketball Championship...we know...especially with plenty of conference play and conference tournaments ahead.
Spurred by a reader comment, though...we did a little fact checking and it is entirely possible that if the Louisville WBB squad does finish in the top 16 in the nation after the conference season has come to an end, they might not be able to host 1st and 2nd round action in the KFC YUM! Center.
The 2015 NCAA Men's Tournament has already announced their 2nd and 3rd round sites and Louisville is one of them. Those games are scheduled to be played on March 21st and 23rd. Unless the bridge completely blows up under Pitino's crew...we're expecting they'll be playing in the KFC YUM! Center.
The 2015 NCAA Women's Tournament has scheduled their
first and second round games from March 20th through March 23rd. The top sixteen teams (seeds) will host at their home arenas. If Louisville can hang on during the rest of what promises to be a tough ACC gauntlet to run through and finish in the top sixteen and get at least a #4 seed, they may be forced to go on the road to open play.
Even if games for the WBB Tournament were scheduled for the 20th and 22nd in the KFC YUM! Center...think of the logistical nightmares as far as practice for the eight teams and media access...plus other headaches.
One observation is that if both scenarios happen, would they move Walz and the WBB squad to Freedom Hall?
|Could we ask the NCAA to let Asia come back and|
play in the tournament? She had to miss a couple...
It's food for thought, though. How weird would it be to return to "blue-toned" Freedom Hall to watch Louisville WBB?
|"Q" has a large fan base in Louisville. If Syracuse|
gets a host opportunity, could he move the games
to Louisville? More than 500 would show up...
Ants in the pudding there on that response. Stay tuned. Play ball! We'll preview the Cards v. Fla State tomorrow.
Feb. Contest Entries are open
Our Feb. CARDINAL COUPLE CONTEST (for the chance to win a fabulous Cardinal Couple T-Shirt) will test your prognostication skills.
Who will score the most total points for Louisville WBB in the seven Feb. games and how many points will this player score?
We know it won't be Walz...he hasn't scored a basket or grabbed a rebound in eight years here and needs to have his scholarship pulled.
Sonja, who grimaced when I asked her prediction, came up with Sara Hammond and 97 points.
To enter, please send us an e-mail at:
Make sure and provide us both parts...player and points.
We've had questions about providing the answer in the comments section...but since we'll require an e-mail or phone number to get in touch with the winner and you may not want to leave such information in a public access site...do that at your own discretion.
42 guys named Bill leaving a player's name and point total on Jan 31st. in the comments section with no identifying way to reach them...ah, the logistical nightmare possibilities are endless!!
|(I just can't seem to come up with the answer)|
Get the ball to Mariya!! LOL....
