#7 seed Flyers next for UofL WBB
When the NCAA Tournament Brackets were first released, Cardinal fans looked at the possibility of Louisville getting a rematch against in-state rival Kentucky in Albany, NY.
Not so fast, my fellow contestants and readers.
Just about every bracket entry we got here at Cardinal Couple indicated that UofL vs. UK would be the Sweet Sixteen matchup to determine who would face UConn (who everyone had advancing). Congratulations to "Slim" and "The other way of stopping" who had the foresight or coin-flip to send Dayton to Albany. Neither entry is doing very well in the contest, by the way.
The Dayton Flyers played the role of David in slaying Goliath (UK) in Memorial Barnyard in a track meet. 99-94.
It's almost if both teams met in the hallway before the game and agreed that first one to 100 wins. Defense pretty much an after-thought in this one.
The upstart Flyers defeated Iowa St. in their first game of the tournament. They threw a stiff breeze against the Cyclones 78-66 with four in double figures.

Head coach Jim Jabir. He could pass for a young Henry Kissinger (Google it if you're under 40). Sonja says he looks like Steve Carrell's older brother. He gives the courtside appearance and manner of a man who has no idea what to do next if you watch him on the sidelines. He must be doing something right...he sent the Cats to spring break.
We'll break this one down further as we get closer to the Saturday 2:30 p.m. game. I'll suggest today's topic for discussion in the comments section. Is there any possible way and, if so, how do they beat Louisville?
Louisville Lacrosse takes their 7-2 record to Farmville, VA to face 2-7 Longwood today at 1 p.m.
I'm pretty sure that you can't download the app and play along...but I'm not much of a gamer...
Instead of harvesting grapes and corn, Kellie Young's LAX tribe will concentrate on putting yellow balls into a net.
It's the second of four on the road for UofL and could be a good test to see how deep Young can go into this year's roster and still get a convincing win.
Softball hosts IU for a single game tonight at Ulmer Stadium. Chilly temps will greet the contestants for the 6 p.m. contest.
Louisville is tied with Florida State atop the ACC standings and will return to conference play Saturday with a trip to Syracuse.
In the meantime, a battle with IU. This series has become somewhat of a rivalry over the past several years and might be a chance for Sandy Pearsall to do a little lineup shuffling and see what some of the lesser used Cards can do on the diamond and at the plate.
