A return to Tuesday Radio and a few superlatives -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



CARDINAL COUPLE SEGMENT RE-JOINS THE HOWIE SHOW ON 790 WKRD


When Howie Lindsey approached CARDINAL COUPLE about doing a women's sports segment once a week on his show at 93.9 The Ville, we were excited to get the chance to promote the joy and excitement of Louisville women's sports. When Lindsey moved to 790 KRD, we hoped that we would be fortunate to continue those weekly segments. 

We'll be joining Howie on his new show...Louisville First... this morning around 7:40 a.m. The show runs on WKRD 790 from 7-10 a.m. Monday-Friday. The debut yesterday was a work of art. Katie George (you remember Katie, right? She finished second to Anne Kordes in the Pedal for the Cure contest at the Pittsburgh game) is a great addition to this new, extended version of Howie doing what he does...discussing and moderating the University of Louisville world of sports. Matt Willinger is a knowledgeable sidekick and the KRD 790 format is solid. Embrace this new morning show and spread the word to all Cardinal fans. 

The earlier show appearance time (for us) is no problem at all. Paulie is usually prowling the Sykes mansion by 6 a.m....feeding and conversing with the attack Yorkies, growling at the morning news folks, serving banana smoothies to the staff chimps and chugging coffee while scanning the Internet. 

We hope it goes well. We're glad to be back in a position where we can talk UofL women's sports at a venue different from our own radio show. Louisville First is a show you need to set your morning alarm to and enjoy.

SOME EARLY WBB SUPERLATIVES


With the UofL WBB squad going into the "second season"...the NCAA Tournament...let's look back and award a few "Cardies"...our version of the Emmy's or Oscars. There will be no actual award presented, just site recognition for a job well done. The envelopes, please....

Most Outstanding Player

This goes to Myisha Hines-Allen for her wonderful season. I'm not sure that you can put into words what she has meant to the team's success this season. Action speaks louder than words. She's been quite active. 

Most Improved Player

I'll go with Arica Carter. A question mark at point-guard last year, she's re-vamped her game and become a valuable, essential contributor to the 2015-16 squad. Her three has improved dramatically and her leadership has surfaced. 

Hustle Award

Hats off to Briahanna Jackson for coming into the program and showing the hustle, drive, desire and creating those "did you see that?" plays that won over the hearts and minds of Louisville women's basketball fans. B.J. leaves it all out on the court and her work ethic is simply incredible. 

Freshman of the Year


The selection is Asia Durr. Hampered by a groin injury early in her career at Louisville, she has emerged as an off-the-bench spark who hits the key shots and has shown that the high-school accolades were accurate and true. The future looks very bright for #25. 

Got a different take? Let us know in the comments section.

  1. Can MHA receive two awards? I'll give her Most Improved in addition to Most Outstanding. Her improvement over last year is amazing. I'm not sure how much Carter has improved....she played behind both Bria Smith and Jude Schimmel last year and we never really saw much of her game. And Carter's contributions this year have been spotty. And how about Comeback Player of the Year to Cortnee Walton?

    1. I'm with Paulie on most improved for Carter. She may not have played a lot last year, but when she did, she looked totally dumbfounded on what she was supposed to be doing, let alone not being able to keep up with the speed. Does she still have room to improve? Of course, but her advancement from last year has been phenomenal. Now, if you wanted to say MHA got "Most Improved Interviewee", I'd be on board with that.

      I'm totally on-board with a "Comeback Player of the Year" for Walton. I just *hope* we can award this to Brackemrye next year. I think she also gets, "Hardest Name to Spell".

    2. On board with MHA as Most Improved Interviewee. And Cortnee as Most Improved. I'll also toss out two more candidates for Most Mis-spelled...Briahanna, which I see often as Brianna or Brihanna and Coach Walz, who gets a lot of "Coach Waltz" recognition.

      I can pretty much assure you that Coach Walz is no dancer (except in NCAA Tournaments) and is way behind Mattie Mitchell in this skill set.

      It's Brackemyre, not Brackemrye...also.

      Can't wait to see what they do with Zambrotta next year.

    3. I see 'waltz' on other boards, too. Next year should be OK with a Jones, Johnson, Shook, Dunham and Zambrotta. I'm glad Walz didn't go after Misha Vkolanderesivich.

    4. Carter by far is most improved. She couldn't have hit a three last with a GPS device hookup. She's 40% this year. No deer-in-the-headlight look either. She and Cole could lose playing time to Jazmine Jones next year, though. She'll end up being one of the best ever to put on a Cardinal WBB uniform.

    5. Dang it...I even went to check Brackemyre and *still* managed to typo it.

      Delete
    6. Hate saying it but I think Arica still is way less than what we need. She has regressed considerably late in the year.

    7. Blue Lou - is Jasmine Jones a point?

      Delete
    8. Jazmine Jones is off guard

      Delete
  2. Headed down to campus for "open" media lacrosse interviews at 1:30 with players and coaches on the field. It'll be the basis of Wednesday column.

    Wonder if I should get Myshia to challenge Kaylin Morissette in a dash from the center circle to the "eight" or anyone to take on Briahanna Jackson in the running broad jump?

    1. I'd like to see a sprint contest between Briahanna Jackson and Hannah Koloski. My money is on Koloski.

      Delete
    2. A good but structured "open" presser today. YOUNG,DALEY,MORISSETTE and READ all took turns in front of the TV crews ( all but WLKY), Demling hogged the questions (he knows nothing about Lacrosse) and it was over.

  3. Most Outstanding - MHA
    Most Improved - MHA with Moore runner up
    Hustle - Walton for her tanacious board work
