Cardinal Couple welcomes a Starr


( Jenny O'Bryan checks in with her Wednesday column, which is about
freshman UofL WBB addition Starr Breedlove.)

Starr Breedlove is the last remaining member of the incoming class to make it to campus.  Reports indicate she will arrive on campus in July. 

Breedlove is a Teaneck, NJ native who makes her way to Louisville by way of Trinity Valley Community College in Texas.   Breedlove spent one year in Texas leading her team to the National Junior College Championship in 2012. 

Breedlove was on campus and in attendance for the 2012 season opening games against Texas A&M and Portland.   She committed to the Cardinals shortly thereafter stating that she was impressed with the team atmosphere and the coaches. 

Breedlove took this past year off from basketball and has been working out individually while attending classes.  She is a 5-6 point guard who will be trying to crack a starting spot on a loaded squad. 

In her only year at Trinity Valley she averaged 9.4 points, 6.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game.   In addition to the great coaching staff she will be working with Breedlove will have incredible talent surrounding her and mentoring her.  Whether it is the sharp-shooting and fancy passing of Shoni, the defensive prowess of Tia Gibbs, the intelligent game of Jude Schimmel, the wide open court and driving to the bucket Bria, or the masterful shooting of Nita Slaughter -- Breedlove will have plenty of opportunites to learn from the nations runner up team. 

Her on the job training will come alongside Monny Niamke who will make her Div. 1 debut this season after sitting out a year as well as Janelle Cannon whom we spoke of earlier this month. 

Welcome to The ‘Ville, Starr.  CardNation awaits.

  1. She seems legit but will she see much time in an already stacked lineup?

  2. My guess is that Walz will extensively use all players in the pre-conference games and come up with a rotation he and the staff are comfortable with by then. As we anxiously await the Cardinal WBB 2013-14 schedule...we figure that the pre-season WNIT will give him a chance to experiment with quite a few combinations and rotations.

    This should be exciting to see.
