Tuesday Cardinal Couple -- Checking the Calendar


( Jeff McAdams gathers his calendars, his electronic devices that track and record, a sundial, celestial star chart and a few IPA's to bring you news today for the future and also discuses the exploits of a certain Rez Baller.) 

A Flourishing Finish

As the WNBA season comes to a close, Shoni Schimmel finishes it off with a Rez Ball-esque flourish by capturing the WNBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

In helping drive her team to the number one spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs, Shoni put up 24 points against The Phoenix Mercury along with six rebounds and three assists.  She tallied 13 points and nine assists against Tulsa, and finished off the week with nine points, two assists, two rebounds, and a steal against Connecticut.

Imagine what she'll do when she really gets going.

Mark Your Calendar

September 9th is the annual matchup between UofL and UK in Volleyball.  We're hosting this year, at the
KFC Yum! Center, and UofL is shooting for a Kentucky volleyball attendance record.  This is a big goal, and one that we'll all need to come together to accomplish.

Kentucky and The KFC Yum! Center already hold the fourth largest attendance for an NCAA Volleyball match ever, from the 2012 NCAA Tournament Championship match, with an attendance of 16,448.  So that is the mark to beat.

The match is at 7 pm, and its a Tuesday night, so start planning now to come out and hopefully be part of another record setting crowd downtown.

Other Calendar Dates

While we're highlighting calendar dates, I want to bring your attention to August 29th.  We've certainly talked about it on the Cardinal Couple radio show on Saturdays, but I want to be sure to highlight it here on the site.

This is a multi-sport day, all home openers, with Field Hockey kicking off the festivities, and their season, at 4pm at Trager Stadium with a match against St. Louis.  Following Field Hockey, a walk down Floyd Street should still give you enough time to see the start of Women's Soccer at the official debut of the Lynn Soccer Stadium with a 6pm first kick against Ole Miss.  Following the women's game, the men get their shot at the new turf with a scheduled 8pm start against Maryland.

We here at Cardinal Couple will, of course, keep you apprised of dates and times of approaching competitions, but I wanted to put these two out there early to make sure people had time to plan and get these important dates on their calendars.
