Terry Jackson, pictured here, is quite excited about the opening of the University of Louisville's downtown basketball facilities. Sunday marked the ribbon cutting ceremonies and season ticket holders will have the chance to tour the facilities on Monday and Tuesday. The seven levels of the arena encompass 721,762 square feet. An opening gala will take place this Thursday and the Eagles will be in concert on Saturday. Louisville will play exhibition games in both men amd women's basketball in the arena before the home openers...UofL women vs. Tennessee on Nov. 12th and Rick Pitino's men's team on Nov. 16th against Butler.


The University of Louisville Field Hockey team dropped a tough one to #3 Princeton in New Jersey on Sunday. The 3-0 loss marked the first time this season that Pam Bustin's squad has been kept off the scoreboard. Princeton (9-2) scored twice in the first nine minutes of the game to build an insurmountable lead over TEAM CARDINAL and added a goal at the end of the second half for insurance.

Princeton out shot the Cards 22-7 in the contest and held an 11-5 advantage in corners. Erin Conrad, Louisville goalie, had 10 saves in the match.

The Cards return home for a few days practice and will host Villanova on Saturday. Iowa visits on Sunday and the Senior Day game will be televised on WHAS-11 TV.


Louisville womens' Soccer hosted Georgetown Sunday in Cardinal Park but fell to the Hoyas 3-1 in a locally televised match. This one was a scoreless battle for much of the first half until Alexa St. Martin took a cross from teammate Samantha Baker and headed one into the goal past Cardinal stopper Taylor Vancil. The teams remained scoreless the rest of the first half.

In the final session, the Hoyas would push the advantage to 3-0 before Louisville got a goal from redshirt freshman Angelika Uremovich booted one into the net from about 20 yards out.

Georgetown (11-4, 5-2) out shot the Cardinals (9-5, 3-4) 18-9 in the game and held a 11-5 advantage in shots on goal. Vancil had eight saves in the contest, including a spectacular leap and deflection in the first half when the score was deadlocked at 0-0.

Sean Moth did the play by play for the contest and an excellent job covering the action and explaining the various situations and strategies that developed during the game.

It was Senior Day and Kate Cunningham, Erin Davis, Caley Elgin, Katie Kuric, Shannon Leamy, Emily Prokopik, Caitlin Rehder and Mededith Tolley were honored in pre-game ceremonies.

Louisville goes on the road for the next two...spanning the states with a Friday contest in Tampa against South Florida and then heading to Marquette on Sunday.


The University of Louisville womens' golf team shot a 286 in the final round of the Tar Heel Invitational to finish tied for 11th in the three day event. Cardinal senior Sara-Maude Juneau fired a 69 on closing day to secure fifth place in the individual standings...totaling 208 for the 54 holes and only three stokes off the winning 205.

Candace Wiley scored a 70 yesterday to tie for 51st. at 223. Laura Anderson used a final day 75 to finish at 222. Maria Castellanos toured the final eighteen with a 72 and 232 for the tournament. Anna Karin Llungstrom took 81 strokes on Sunday...finishing with a 3 day total of 234.

The Cards end the fall season in Vegas on October 25-27 in the Las Vegas Showdown.
