Cal excited about Louisville WBB Visit? -- Saturday Cardinal Couple

Bears trying to fill the seats for UofL visit

The University of Louisville women's basketball squad has been a big draw whenever they've gone on the road over the last 4-5 years. Having 2 NCAA WBB Championship game appearances and a couple of Schimmel's on roster will do that for a program. Knocking off the Cards in your house can bring a program immediate nationwide recognition these days. 

The University of California would like the Bay area and Berkeley residents to come out and see if Lindsey Gottlieb's charges can win this match up of top 25 foes. Here's the promotional pitch UC marketing is using to fill the seats on Sunday:

Fans have multiple ticket options for Sunday’s Top 25 clash between No. 24 California and No. 10 Louisville. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. and will be broadcast live on the Pac-12 Networks.
• Teddy Bear Toss! Free admission with the donation of a new or gently worn teddy bear. All bears will benefit the “Good News Bears” charity
• MBB Ticket Stub: All fans bringing a ticket stub from Friday night’s California men’s basketball game against Eastern Washington will receive free admission to Sunday’s game
• $1 Youth Admission: Sunday is “Kids Day” with all youth tickets costing just $1. In addition, the Bears will do post-game autographs on the court
• BEATTHECARDS: All fans can receive $1 admission by using the promo code “BEATTHECARDS” to purchase their tickets online prior to Sunday. Use the promo code by CLICKING HERE
• FREE T-SHIRTS! The first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a free California basketball t-shirt. Arrive early to get yours!


We'll have yet another edition of Cardinal Couple Radio today at 11 AM on WCHQ 100.9 FM and streaming from

Basketball is the soup du jour today (gee, go figure), we'll test Jeff and the listeners with another WORDLWIDE QUIZ and who knows what other stuff we'll toss in there to entertain, mystify, baffle, confuse and alienate our listeners.

Enter if you dare. Online link below if you're out of the FM broadcast range:




  1. Cal has had five home games this year and only reported attendance on four of them. They had a total of 8,158 fans attend those for an average of 2,039 per game. Pretty weak for a top 25 program. In that context I guess one dollar tickets might make some sense for them.

    We should get good local fan support from Mariya's family and friends and hopefully some of Arica's folks from the Los Angeles area will make the trip north since Berkeley is as close as we'll get to her home this year. It also looks like there will be a number of Schimmel supporters at the game although probably not as many as in Phoenix.

    I got lucky on this one as it's being broadcast on the PAC12 Network which comes bundled in my cable package. I'm looking for E to get some serious minutes going toe to toe with Gray. Should be a great game!

  2. Thanks for the heads up Paulie. I just bought 2 online for a buck each. They make their money on the printing charge ($3).

  3. I also am fortunate to have the pack 12 network as part of my cable package but before i was still able to view Pac 12 game through the internet. I was able to download the Pac 12 app for free then view any of the games.

    Check it out early for any glitches so we will all be ready for the 5:00 tip off..
