Tough way for the baseball team to end the season last night. Rallied twice to tie the game against Vandy and then lose in the bottom of the 10th on a misfielded bunt.
Still, a good year for UofL baseball and plenty of returning players next year should give Dan McDonnell another Big East title contending team.

The "batter interference" call hardly ever gets called in baseball anymore..but it cost the Cards a great scoring opportunity late in last night's game. A terrible decision by the home plate umpire...the throw was high, not in time and the batter did nothing to impede the Vandy catcher's attempt to throw out the runner attempting to steal second.


OK! To the answers...

1) B. Adrienne Johnson works with UofL marketing and is the color commentator for women's basketball

2) C. Alpine skiing. Plenty of slipping and sliding down on campus in the winter months, though

3) D. Candace Parker played for Tennessee and is in the WNBA now.

4) B. MacArthur Park. A great song by Richard Harris!

5) B. Bethann is an assistant basketball coach for the Lady Cards.

6) B. Sean Moth does the P.A. work for the Lady Cards and also calls a great baseball game on the radio.

7) A. Connie was a rapid fire guard for the UofL basketball team.

8) B. Field Hockey. The state of the art facility is the best in the nation for field hockey.

9) C. Rowing. Hopefully, they do move forward in the water.

10) B. Summers is one of the nation's best in the discus, hammer and shot put.
