Angel McCoughtry's No. 35 jersey will be the first jersey to be hoisted to the rafters in the new multi million dollar 22,000 seat arena, saluting her numerous contributions while at the University of Louisville.
"Angel is greatly loved by the students and the city of Louisville", says L Johnverrell of Angel35fans.com, a fan site dedicated to McCoughtry. "There have been a lot of great Cardinals mens and womens basketball players, but her jersey will be the first to hang over every single game."
Following the jersey ceremony, the Lady Cards will host Tennessee in their season opener.
