Louisville women's basketball headed to Canada...

Lady Cards are busy preparing for a trip to Canada.

-Lady Cards headed to Canada for exhibition games.

-Reimer eying Lady Cards?

That sound of basketballs bouncing in Cardinal Arena isn't intramurals or a couple of guys trying to beat each other in a game of "21"'s the University of Louisville women's basketball full practice...granted 10 extra practice days by the NCAA to prepare for exhibition games in Canada later this summer.

CARDINAL COUPLE has learned that the highly heralded freshmen are on campus and preparing for a preseason trip to our neighbors to the north along with the rest of Jeff Walz's team. Details and schedules haven't been released yet on the excursion...or whether their will be any radio or television coverage of the exhibition games. The coaches have 14 players on campus and preparing for the trip. Redshirt center Cierra Warren recently underwent successful knee surgery..earlier reports had her scheduled to resume full practice in we're not sure what role she'd play on the impending trip..but with Shawnta Dyer, Sherrone Vails, Asia Taylor and Sara Hammond available for front line duty...the Cards won't be lacking in height or skills against their scrimmage opponents...

We'll keep you posted on further developments here at CARDINAL COUPLE as we get them.


Reimer will be a junior this fall and the
college coaches are hot on her trail.
Hamilton Southereastern (IN) junior Taya Reimer recently competed in the FIBA Americas USA U16 team that won the gold medal. She played along side of Ownesboro Catholic's Becca Greenwell and Springfield (OR) star Mercedes Russell...starting all  five games.and averaging 4.8 points and game and five rebounds. The 6'3" forward has been offered scholarships from several high-profile programs....including LOUISVILLE, UConn, Notre Dame, Baylor, Purdue and Michigan State. Her thoughts?

"I'm hoping to narrow down my list after this summer and hopefully make a decision in the next year."

Looks like Coach Walz is in the running for another elite 16 yr. old. Some pretty challenging and tough competition wooing Ms. Reimer for her services...but if we know anything about Walz, he doesn't back down from a challenge....
