More on USA 3x3 Tournament -- Softball heads to Raleigh -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
FOUR CARDS WBB COMPETE AS ONE OF 18 TEAMS
With 3x3 Basketball now a part of the 2020 Olympics, this fast-paced and exciting style of basketball is one that is fun to watch and Louisville has fielded a roster to go compete for the 2019 gold medal in Las Vegas Friday and Saturday.
It can be played indoor or outdoor, the Vegas tourney will be outdoor and Louisville's roster of Bionca Dunham, Jazmine Jones, Mykasa Robinson and Seygan Robins will test their skills against representatives from Miami, NC State, Oregon St. and other players from across the United States.
The rules are slightly different for 3x3. It is played on half court. You go to "21" or whoever has the most points after 10 minutes of play. There is a 12-second shot clock and just one substitute available.
The players also have the chance to be added to the 2019 USA women's USA Pan American squad.
Some pretty big names out in Vegas beside the Louisville contingent. Ruthy Hebard Janelle Bailey, Destiny Slocum, Michaela Onyenwere, Rhyne Howard, Beatrice Mompremier, Megan Walker and Elissa Cunane -- just to name a few.
Action starts Friday and ultimately ends Saturday night with the finals at 10 p.m. on usabtv.com Live stats will be available for all the games at the usab.com website as well.
The Cardinal roster has shooting, rebounding, ball-handling skills and should be a contender in Vegas. Good luck to the "Louisville Four!"
SOFTBALL ENDS REGULAR SEASON AT N.C. STATE
Louisville Softball ends the regular season with a three-game series in Raleigh N.C., against the Wolfpack. Louisville goes into the series at 33-17 and 12-9 in the ACC. N.C. State is 25-26 on the season and 6-15 in the conference.
Both schools participate in the Atlantic Division of the ACC. Louisville looks to finish third in the division -- with 16-5 FSU and 15-6 Notre Dame ahead of them. The Irish face Georgia Tech in South Bend to end their regular season and FSU will head to Syracuse for their final three.
First pitch is Friday, 6 p.m. and all the action can be seen on the ACCNE network.
The Cards then travel to Tallahassee for the ACC Championships, which start May 8th. Louisville is currently the overall 5th seed in the conference, which would put them up against #4 seed Notre Dame on Thursday in Game 4, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and on the RSN Network.
We'll have more details for you here at Cardinal Couple over the next few days.
