A slow week for LOUISVILLE Women's Sports -- Saturday Cardinal Couple

After WBB loss to UK..a void of reporting

It's a period where not a whole lot is happening with UofL women's sports.

"What you do mean there was no Thursday
Thursday this week?" 
No postseason activity to follow for the fall sports. With Field Hockey, Soccer and Volleyball done for the off until Monday and Softball and Lacrosse a couple of months away -we're in a temporary void.

It happens.

So, let's look at our three favorite moments of Cardinal sports so far in the 2014-2015 season.

In no particular ranking:

-- Field Hockey takes down UNC

It was pure joy and pandemonium. Justine Sowry's stick-
swingers bring in #1 UNCand beat them in the Trager. To see the excitement and the pride in winning this games is something we'll never forget here at Cardinal Couple. The pride and accomplishment in those young women's faces. Justine Sowry and crew took on the challenge of moving to the best conference in NCAA Field Hockey and slayed the giant. Well done....Flock.

-- Duke defeated

Another tip of the cap to Field Hockey for their win over #4 Duke. This one signified that the win over UNC eight days earlier was no fluke or one-in-a-million shot. It was also sweet in the student-defeats-teacher factor...Justine Sowry was a Pam Bustin assistant before going to run the UMass Field Hockey squad. When Bustin left for "the big time"...Duke and the ACC...Sowry was summoned to run the Cards. Well, guess what? Louisville joined the ACC and Sowry beat Bustin. Not bad...not bad at all. 

-- Still owning Iowa

A Iowa team with all kinds of motivation to take it to
Louisville in WBB came into the KFC YUM! Center and ran into the immovable object. Jeff Walz's crew turned it their best performance so far of the season in showing that the March throw-down against a BIG 10 heavyweight was not a fluke. I'd like to see that team that blinded the Hawkeyes show up in ACC play.


We'll be doing radio today @ 11 a.m. on WCHQ 100.9 FM and streaming live on internet @

Louisville women's basketball remains the hot topic this time of year...but we'll also take a look ahead to softball and lacrosse. They aren't that far away. Jeff will attempt to better his 85% on The Worldwide Quiz never know...Don Paulie and Kenny K. Keith just may drop in.

It's radio that you can probably live without...but why deny yourself of the special things in life? We're pretty special and our mamas love hop in, hang on, turn up the volume and spend an hour with Worldwide and Paulie. 



  1. Long Beach State just beat #18 Cal Berkeley by two points in overtime. Cal now has two losses and will most likely drop in the rankings but hopefully will still be a top 25 team when we play them a week from tomorrow.

    Don't know what's going on with Cal. Two big time stars and have been beaten by two unranked programs in their last two games.

    1. Boyd had a good game for Cal but Gray with only four points. Gabby Green seeing a lot of playing time as a freshman...Cards had some interest in her. LBS was on a five game winning streak coming in.


    2. Yep. Looks like Gray got booted from the game early in the first quarter for a flagrant 2. Helps explain the loss. I was trying to remember which one of their leaders had a reputation for having an attitude. Guess it was Gray.

      They don't have another game till they play us. With two losses in a row and them playing at home we can expect a war.
