Asia Wins More Awards

After having a Durr-ific senior season Asia Durr was recognized with more awards.

She was one of 10 players named a WBCA All-American.  Nine different teams were represented with UConn being the only team to have multiple players.  Joining Durr includes:

Kalani Brown- Baylor
Megan Gustafson- Iowa
Bridge Carleton- Iowa State
Teaira McCowan- Mississippi State

Alanna Smith- Stanford
Katie Lou Samuelson- UConn

Besides being named to another All-American list 'Nite-Nite' was also won the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award.  Ann Meyers Drysdale is the first collegiate basketball player named to the All-America team for all four seasons of eligibility  The award recognizes the top shooting guard in women's D1 basketball.

(send in another guy from Building and Grounds, UofL, to help with the construction of the trophy case, it going to be bigger than anticipated)


Rowing is enjoying warm, sunny weather down in Sarasota for the Sunshine State Invitational for a
three-day event.

Lacrosse hosts North Carolina on Saturday at noon, right when the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour concludes.  The Tar Heels come in #5 in the country and are coming off a close loss to Notre Dame last out.  Lately, the LaxCards have had some close battles as the players become accustomed to the Teeter system so this could potentially come down to the wire

Paulie caught up with Coach Teeter Thursday for a pre-UNC interview that you'll find a link to below

Softball hosts a three-game series against national champion Florida State.  The Cards and Seminoles play Saturday at 1:00, Sunday at 1:00, and Monday night at 7:00, with that final game being aired on ESPNU.

Volleyball will play several matches Saturday at KIVA  over by the zoo throughout the day.  Worldwide will be on-site and we'll catch up with him via phone on the Cardinal Couple Radio at 11 a.m. Saturday on WCHQ.

Women's tennis has concluded their home schedule, but hits the road to face Virginia Tech on Friday and Virginia on Sunday.

We also attach a great article from Louisville Lacrosse player Shayla Scanlan that was in US Lacrosse magazine recently.



Muffet's Comments

Normally I don't have reason to listen to what Muffet McGraw has to say but her comments from yesterday were worth mentioning.

The Notre Dame head coach goes on a several-minute monologue regarding equal rights and the few number of women head coaches, athletic directors, and CEO's.

In terms of women role models in head coaching positions McGraw is one of the few that can hold that title.  So yes, Muffet, I do applaud you for that.


Finally, a couple of the best comebacks to one of the most stupid questions ever asked at a Final Four presser, we give you Muffet one more time and Geno at the link below:


Happy Friday and Go Cards!



  1. Wow. Some hard hitting and great clips and reading today here at Cardinal Couple !! Bravo, bravo !!

    I don't care for Muffet but I'm 100% behind her stance.

    Hoping for a big weekend for softball and lacrosse but it'll be an uphill battle on both accounts for them

    Finally, keep collecting the trophies, Asia! Forget about a new trophy case, just build a small building/shrine to her across the street from the Korger and Lacrosse field. Replace those stupid semis and put of a cardinal Hall of Fame, with her stuff, Angel and Shoni's stuff and other awards won by ALL Louisville athletic programs.

  2. Ugh. Final Four goes to Baylor and Notre Dame. I was hoping for an Oregon vs. UConn.

    1. This is a good match-up Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Baylor Lady Bears for the NCAA WBB CHAMPIONSHIP.
      Go Card's !!!!!
