No "Pollyanna" here..Harrington has hops

Pictured with her parents' on signing day, Polly Harrington commits to the Cards. Good things come in small packages sometimes and the 6'0" center/forward out of Hickman Mills, MO. is a bonafide paint player.

Don't let the height fool you. Polly Harrington is not a guard. The strong, athletic rebounder played center for Hickman Mills and was selelcted for the Class 4 Missouri first team. She averaged 18.8 points and 8 boards her senior year and fooled more than one opponent with her ability to get positioning and score underneath.

Part of Louisville's #2 ranked recruiting class nationally, Harrington may be the least lauded and heraled player of the group...but just might be the hardest worker coming to campus this fall. Those who have seen UK's Victoria Dunlap work the paint during her time with the Cats will be able to get a good idea of Harrington's game. Taller opponents with have trouble with her quickness and muscle underneath and she can get out and motor in the transition of the Cardinal rules in "Walz ball."

She'll be an important addition to the front line of the Lady Cards lineup for the 2010-11 season and will most likely compete for playing time at the power forward position. Transitioning her to a wing position has been attempted before...and the Cards are already quite strong out in that area, so Harrington's most effective contribution will come in the paint. She'll be one of three incoming freshmen expected to provide depth there for Walz's Cards...and based on her high school performance and numbers...should log plenty of minutes on the hardwood.

Cardinal Couple is proud to give you these preseason progonostications on the newest Lady Cards and is happy to be your fan voice and source of Louisville Womens' Basketball.


Angel McCoughtry flew into Indy last night and put 21 points on the Indiana Fever but her Atlanta Dream team fell just short of the win...falling 94-91. The Dream roared back from a 13 point late 3rd quarter deficit to climb within two at 91-89 with a little over a minute left in the game. Unfortunately, the lead never came their way and a three attempt to tie in at the buzzer by Shalee Lehning fell short.

Iziano Castro-Marquez added 21 point for the Dream and Sancho Lyttle produced 20 points and 20 grabs in the losing effort.

Atlanta is now 1/2 game back of Connecticut in the WNBA's Eastern Division. 8200 were in attendance for "UofL" Night in Conseco Fieldhouse.


Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there. I miss my father each and every day and will be always grateful for the wisdom, advice and guidance he provided.
