Hailey Van Lith Named to 3x3 National Team

The 2022 FIBA 3x3 World Cup is coming up later this month, so it seemed about time for USA Basketball to name their team. One of the players is quite familiar with the format and quite familiar to Cardinal fans: Hailey Van Lith. Van Lith was on the 2019 U18 3x3 team and was named the MVP of the tournament after the USA took gold.

Van Lith has also represented the US in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and 2018 FIBA U17 World Cup. Both of those events were traditional 5-on-5 and the USA won gold in both. 

Van Lith is joined by Cierra Burdick (Tennessee), Lauren Cox (Baylor), and Ashley Joens (Iowa State) for the event, which runs from June 21st to June 26th in Antwerp, Belgium. The team is coached by Kara Lawson of Duke and will play their first games in pool play against New Zealand and Austria on June 22nd.

In other HVL news, she appears to be set to finally begin cashing on in what has often been proclaimed the highest earning potential in the early NIL era for a basketball player. A re-shared story posted to her Instagram hinted at an upcoming ad campaign with Dick's Sporting Goods. After long seeing professional athletes in national commercials, it seems we are on the cusp of college athletes interrupting your favorite shows and movies as well.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast

Daryl and I are both out this week, but the show must go on. Paulie, Jeff, and Jared will bring you the latest in the joy and excitement of Louisville women's athletics, and I suspect this week's show will be focused on former Cards. Of course, there's Gabi Leon to continue gushing over, Louisville's first outdoor national champion, and Paulie may even introduce the season's first Cardinal Couple Quiz. 

As always, you can check out the live stream of the show by going to the Cardinal Couple YouTube page and clicking on the live video. Jeff usually creates that about an hour before the show, which officially starts at 11 AM Eastern. If the live time doesn't work for you, there are plenty of playback options, so be sure to check out whichever is best for you!
