Miami on New Years Eve


Hola!  Buenos dias!  Bienvenidos a la dia del juego contra Miami.


Wait a minute...wrong language.  Let's try that again.

Hello! Good Day! Welcome to gameday against Miami.  My apology for the slip up, I've just returned from a wonderful break with my family from Cabo San Lucas, and I had a shocking amount of the spanish language return to my communication capability over the week.  I took spanish in grade school for many years, but thought I had long since forgotten it all, but no, when the time came, I was able to dredge a fair bit of it up for use.

In any case, I'm back in the Ville, rested, recharged, and ready to see this Louisville Women's Basketball team kick off conference play today with this matchup against Miami.  Case already did an overview of the team's schedule yesterday, so in anticipation for the game today, we'll look a the players a bit more.

Miami has had two players pass the 100 points mark for the season thus far, Jasmyne Roberts - 121, Sheyann Day-Wilson - 101.  From distance the biggest threat on the team is Lymyah Hylton, with 16 made 3 buckets from beyond the arc, good for a .381 clip.  Close behind are Day-Wilson and Roberts.  Rounding out the double-digit beyond-the-arc threat is Jaida Patrick and Ally Stedman.

As a team, the Hurricanes have outscored their opponents thus far, by about 200 points total, for an average scoring margin of over 18 points.  Of course, expect that number to fall some as they enter the tougher conference schedule.  The only statistical category that this team has fallen behind their opponents is in the free throw percentage, hitting just .601 for the year.  That definitely isn't going to be getting any F's in their Fred reports.

This is a later start in the day than is typical on a Sunday as it is, of course, New Year's Eve.  The game is also scheduled on the linear ACC Network, which also has a tendency to push it to later in the day.  4pm will be the tip-off in Coral Gables, Florida, giving you plenty of time to make it to your New Years celebration of choice.

With Paulie recuperating, me traveling, Daryl getting some wedding planning in, and really just not much of significance on the calendar for the week, The CCRHP also took a week of vacation, and should be ready to start off the new year with a bang.

Happy New Year to all, and please, be careful if you're going to be driving late this evening.  Obviously we all knew just how dangerous it can be to drink and drive, just don't do it!  But drowsy driving can be just as dangerous.  And even if you are awake, alert, and sober, there will unfortunately be plenty of others on the roadways tonight that won't be.

Be safe, and cheer on the Cards!
