CARDS WBB VS. MIAMI POSTPONED
Hello again, Cardinal faithful!
It's good to be back but I hate to be the bearer of bad news here.. There has been another postponement in the Women's basketball schedule. News out of the Louisville program is that Sunday's scheduled matchup with the Miami Hurricanes has been postponed as of Thursday evening. I think that was pretty much expected. It feels like I haven't watched the Cards play a basketball game in a month!
The next scheduled matchup for WBB would be a second meeting with Duke on New Years Eve, however, the Blue Devils program announced Wednesday evening that it would be pausing all team activities due to positive tests. Which makes the matchup a big IF right now with 2 weeks from Wednesday's announcement landing on 12/30. I really wouldn't be surprised if we've watched the Cards play their last game of 2020 already. So for now, we continue to wait.
There were four WBB in the ACC last night.
-- A good night in the Carolinas, it would seem, with home-standing NC St. taking down Wake Forest 79-65. The Wolfpack are now 7-0 and the Demon Deacs check in at 4-2. in "the battle of I-40".
-- In Chapel Hill, UNC surprisingly silenced Syracuse 92-68. Banghart's bangers up their record to 6-2, while Q's squad takes their first loss and is 4-1.
-- The Fighting Irish battled their way to a 84-78 win over Virginia Tech in South Bend. It was a match up of Dara Mabrey's previous squad (VT) against her new one (ND). UND evens it out on the season with a 3-3 record and Kenny Brooks' squad takes their first defeat and is now 6-1.
-- Clemson appears to be "for real" as of now -- with a 72-69 win over FSU in Littlejohn Coliseum. Those glassy-eyed Tigers are 7-1, while FSU takes their first conference loss and go to 3-1.
Just three undefeated schools left in ACC conference games: Louisville, NC State and Georgia Tech. In all games, it narrows the undefeated down to two, the Cards (5-0) and the Pack (7-0).
