LINDSEY DUVALL COMMITS TO UofL WBB -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


5'10" POINT GUARD HEADED TO LOUISVILLE

Jeff Walz and staff do it again. 


Rising senior from Bullitt East (Mt. Washington, KY) Lindsey Duvall gave the Louisville WBB coach her verbal yesterday. Lindsey, who de-committed from Kentucky in the spring is considered one of the front-runners for Miss Basketball honors in the 2016-17 season. 

The current topsy-turvy situation at UK, with players leaving and de-committing caught Duvall's eye: 

" That kind of made me unsure if that was still where I wanted to go. I wanted to be close to home and Louisville is obviously a really good program. I love their coaches, I went and played pickup with the girls and they were all awesome to be around." 

Duvall was expected to miss the 2015-16 season after having a tumor removed from her near her left knee. She returned, though, in February, to average 18.7 points for the Chargers. 


After she reopened her commitment, several schools vied for her services, including DePaul, Michigan, Ohio State and Colorado. Her coach from high school, Chris Stallings, elaborates: 

"They (Louisville) liked what they saw, how she played and how her recovery was. Everything was pretty positive there. She's really happy with her decision and so am I." 

Lindsey is the second UofL commit for 2017, joining Loretta Kakala. 


The Cards have gone after two in-state guards this spring-summer and gotten both. 2018 rising junior Seygan Robins, from Mercer County is also headed to Louisville. She's also excited about Lindsey's announcement. This tweet from Lindsey to her: 


Thanks Seygan!!!! Teammates for life, huh?😊https://twitter.com/seygan_4/status/759426061859954688

How many more 2017 prospects will Louisville go for? Only Walz and the staff know that for sure...but for those who have lamented in the past that UofL WBB doesn't go after or end up getting good in-state prospects, you can toss that theory out the window. 


This is a very good "get" for Louisville. Duvall is a student of the game and works very hard on the court. She is comfortable either in a scorer's role or assist-maker and defensive stopper. 

It looks like the adage "those who wait receive good fortunes" holds true. Louisville was on and off her radar for a couple of years. They never burned any bridges. They stayed in touch and when the Lexington leavings went viral, they confirmed their interest in Duvall was still strong and she "saw the light". 

Congratulations, Lindsey! You're joining a great team!

It was an interesting show...to say the least...with Worldwide joining me via phone and Monk filling in admirably in the first fifteen mintues.

Live radio. Nothing like it.

  1. Good radio but rough sound quality, Paulie. I like the local feature at the start with "Monk". Hope you keep it.

  2. Paulie, in your opinion who are the top 3 in-state wbb players that have graduated KY high school in last 5 years?

    Erin Boley, Rebecca Greenwell, Epps?

    Notre Dame got Erin Boley and Natalie Novosel from way back. When Notre Dame can cherry pick the best in state when they choose to it makes it tough for us to make up ground.

  3. Erin Boley, Jackie Young and Ali Patberg are going to be beasts
    Those are givens. That's the difference between Notre Dame and all other ACC schools. We are chipping away but those three are can't miss.
