Arslanbeckova, Youman earn BIG EAST honors


-Nicole Youman named BIG EAST Player of the Week

-Lola Arslanbeckova named BIG EAST Player of the Week

-UofL Women's basketball season ticket plan

Two UofL women's sports athletes have been selected for top honors for their performances last week. Here's the details...

Nicole Youman, senior forward from Black Mountain, Austrailia, has been named the BIG EAST Player of the Week in Field Hockey for her efforts last week in the TEAM CARDINAL wins against Villanova and Iowa. She ended up with eleven points...scoring three times and dishing out five assists in the 6-0 whitewash of Villanova and 4-1 win over Iowa. Youman leads the BIG EAST with 15 goals and 18 assists on the season...good for 48 points.

This is her third BIG EAST Player of the Week honor this season. The Cards (11-5, 4-1) travel to Providence (4-11, 0-4) for a Saturday match against the Lady Friars (sounds strange, right) and a non-conference Sunday tussle with New Hampshire. The Providence game will end the conference schedule for Pam Bustin's squad. They are second in the BIG EAST standings currently.


Lola Arsanbeckova, a sophomore outside hitter for the UofL volleyball team was named BIG EAST player of the week in Volleyball for her fine performance in the upset win over Cincinnati Saturday in Cardinal Arena. It's the first such award for Lola or any of the Volley Cards this season.

Lola was spectacular in the Bearcats vs. Cardinals showdown. She had 24 kills and seven digs in the 3-2 win for Louisville. She hit for an awesome .419 in the match. Currently she is fifth in the conference in hitting percentage and third in kills per set.

Louisville is tied for first place in the BIG EAST with the Bearcats at 6-1. They have the next three games at home, beginning with Lipscomb on Wednesday night. BIG EAST foe Georgetown
visits Friday night and the home stand ends with USF on Sunday afternoon. After that, the next five out of six are on the road and the BIG EAST tournament is in Pittsburgh this year. Louisville is 11-5 on the season and currently riding a five match win streak.


UofL has announced a special women's season ticket basketball package for UofL Alumni and it is quite a deal. This new package includes 4 Women's Basketball season tickets for $160 total. If you purchase the package, you also get 4 additional tickets to the UofL vs. Tennessee game on November 12th. and 4 additional tickets to the UofL vs. UK game on December 5th.

All the UofL women's basketball home games will be played in the state of the art KFC - YUM! Center. The sections available for this special deal are all lower level.

Call Eric Clouse, director of ticket sales, at (502) 852-7254 to get in on the action.

Think about it. 16 home games. 4 tickets each, plus an additional 4 tickets each for two of the biggest games of the year. I didn't major in math but I come up with 72 total tickets here for slightly over $2 a seat. The best entertainment value in town, folks.
Make that call to Eric today and he'll be happy to fill you in on which sections and seats are open. Last I heard, the offer applied to Sections 101-104, 108-114 and 118-120. I've been to the new arena a couple of times now and there are no bad views from anywhere on the lower level.
You might even run into the co-owners of CARDINAL COUPLE during a contest...but don't let that hold you back from getting in the game. WE promise to be nice. Jeff Walz insists. Otherwise we have to run the steps in the arena and try to guard Asia Taylor.
