FAIRS, PHILO LEAD CARDS TO MIAMI WIN
At this time last year, Erin Fairs was sending kills over the net in Tampa, FL. against AAC foes for USF and Aniah Philo was doing the same for her high school team in Texas.
Fast forward to yesterday...when Fairs has 24 kills on a .391 hitting average and Philo added 14 kills with a .345 accuracy to lead Louisville to a 22-25, 25-19, 25-15, 25-21 win over the 'Canes to improve to 8-4 on the season and 2-0 in the ACC.

Another question arises on the status of Cards outside hitter Maya McClendon...who has been in uniform but hasn't participated against either Notre Dame or Miami. Last year's leader in kills...McClendon has been seeing less time this season with the arrival of Fairs and Philo on campus.
WSOC DOWNED BY PITT 1-0
A scoreless affair in the first half and for 25 minutes of the second half in Lynn Stadium Sunday...which head coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes pretty much expected...since both squad played a few days ago.
Pitt getting the eventual game winner in the 70th minute.
The Cards stand at 4-5-1 overall and 1-2 in ACC play. Louisville has not allowed more than two goals to anyone this season but has not scored more than two goals in any contest.
Pitt and Louisville each had 12 shots yesterday...the Panthers having seven of those on goal...compared to the Cards four.
UofL will step out of conference Thursday night for a match against Morehead State at the Lynn Soccer Stadium.
