E throws for NCAA Discus title today...Meet WBB 2017 prospect Michaela Onyenwere -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
EMMONNIE HENDERSON THROWS TONIGHT
Louisville's Emmonnie Henderson participates tonight in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at the Oregon Ducks Track and Field Stadium. The event is scheduled to start around 6 p.m.
She'll look to do better than last year's 3rd place finish...a toss of 58.34m...against a very competitive field. "E" is ranked 20th in the field of 24. ACC's Florida State has two competitors that will toss for the title.
Best of luck to "E"! Shock 'em again this year.
MICHAELA ONYENWERE HAS CARDS ON HER TABLE
One of the more intriguing 2017 WBB prospects, Michaela Onyenwere has released her short list of colleges and Louisville has made the list...along with UCLA, USC, Tennessee, Kentucky and Arizona State.
The 5'11" wing/forward has done great things at Grandview, CO in her high school career. She's back-to-back Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year. Her squad went 26-1 last year and she averaged 24.5 ppg and 10.6 rebounds. She #14 with HoopGurlz
Coaches marvel at her speed. With little training, she ran track also in the spring and qualified for four events in the State finals...finishing second in the 100m, third in the 200m, fifth in the 400m and fifth in the long jump. She can cover baseline and side-to-side on the hardwood with eye-popping quickness.
Track could definitely be an option for the speedster but she's looking at hoops for her college student-athlete pursuit.
We'll keep an eye on her senior season...but won't blink...she's liable to zip right by us.
