CARDS WSOC CALLIE MCKINNEY TO BELLARMINE
Callie McKinney was an excellent mid-fielder for the Louisville women's soccer squad during her four years as a Cardinal. Callie was a starter all four years at Louisville. She's taken those skills and parlayed them into a coaching career.
The Knights announced last night that McKinney has joined the staff as a graduate assistant.
Bellarmine will compete (sooner or later) in Division I women's soccer and is in the A Sun Conference. Glad to see that Callie will still be around "the Ville" - and hope she can do wonderful things as a part of head coach Chris Tinius' staff!
Three out of the four UofL WBB Cardinals in "the wubble" were in action last night.
CHICAGO SKY 84 -- LAS VEGAS 82
A heart-breaking loss for Angel and the Aces last night. With 13 seconds to go, Chicago ran a nifty out-of-bounds double screen that eventually got Azura Stevens wide open under the basket and she sank the layup to sink Las Vegas.
Angel McCoughtry led the Aces with 17 points. She was one of five double-digit scorer for the Aces, who are now 8-3. McCoughtry added five rebounds in 21 minutes of play.
Las Vegas led 25-15 after one quarter but Chicago (8-4) roared back in the second half and grabbed a nine-point lead. Vegas was able to tie it late, but the Sky managed to get their second win in a row.
SEATTLE 105 - NEW YORK 64
A tough night for the New York Liberty against league-leading Seattle last night. The Storm jumped out to a 10-0 lead and had things well in control by the half, leading 61-28.
For New York (1-10) Jazmine Jones had 10 points and six rebounds in 28 minutes. Kylee Shook saw 18 minutes and had four points and six rebounds.
The struggling Liberty have lost their last five games in a row.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, mask up, keep your distance and sanitize and wash.
Good deal on the volleyball addition and new job for Callie.ReplyDelete
The Liberty need an inside game.
