Jared Anderson on U23 squad, Donovan and shoes -- Wednesday Cardinal Couple

PLAYING THE GAME, WEARING THE GEAR
 AND BEATING THE WEATHER
The talent of Jeff Walz's squad continues to improve year after year. A pair of women's basketball players have found themselves invited to the 2017 USA Basketball Women's U-23 National Team in Colorado at the end of the month. Asia Durr set a UofL single season record with 119 3-pointers. She posted a team-best 692 points on the year and averaged 19.2 points per game. Asia, who is on the 1000 point club, will return as a junior and we hope she'll remain an offensive powerhouse. Myisha Hines-Allen has played many positions with the Cards. She has battled numerous injuries in her first three years. Myisha posted 17 double-doubles this past season, tying Angel McCoughtry's two-time record. She is also in the top 50 in the country for double-doubles, rebounds, and rebounds per game. 12 of the 40 players invited to the tryouts will make the team. The final squad will face Canada, Australia, and Japan in a round-robin tournament in Tokyo in mid-August. All players must be 23 or younger and coming out of their freshman, sophomore, or junior year in college. Another Cardinal to look for on the team will be head coach Jeff Walz. He will be the captain of this year's team. He was an assistant on the teams from 2014 and 2015 when both squads went undefeated and took home the gold. The men counterparts had some recent news of their own. Donovan Mitchell and adidas have announced a shoe deal. The rookie Utah Jazz player has already shined in the summer league. Imagine the back order of shoes from the Louisville fanbase. My closing remarks for today will be a reminder to keep those air conditioners running and to stay hydrated. The weather continues to get hotter!

  2. Copy and paste baby. Looks OK to me on website and on my cell. ..however, Worldwide has been known to go in and reformat articles. That's why I recommend you guys go directly to the site and write them. ..that way you can bypass Paulie doing it.

  3. An impressive list of players. Interesting that Mariya Moore got an invite with Walz being the head coach. Best of luck to Asia And Myisha!

    1. Although he is head coach, the actual selection committee consists of head coaches Jen Rizotti (Geo. Wash), Karen Aston (Texas), Tonya Cardoza (Temple), Wes Moore (NC State) and TV analyst Kara Lawson/

  4. I'm just curious about the numerous injuries MHA has been thru the last three years? Can someone fill me in? I knew last year she had a shoulder injury...but what else? Best of luck to Myisha and Asia!

    1. All I know of is the unspecified leg injury that slowed her down in a couple of games last year. No major surgeries that I know of...readers, help us out here? She's started 93 games in three years.
