Sydney Zambrotta says "Yes" to Louisville WBB -- Tuesday Cardinal Couple
CHRIST THE KING SENIOR COMMITS TO UOFL
We told you a few weeks back to get to know the name Sydney Zambrotta if you are a UofL women's basketball fan. We hope you were listening...
Syd has become the second 2016 commit for Jeff Walz's WBB squad. The prolific 5'9" guard picked the Cards over Minnesota, Miami, Pittsburgh and South Carolina. After visits to the Gophers and Canes...she hit Louisville and the search was over. She saw and fell in love with the campus and her future teammates.
The Cardinal staff fell in love with her early on and even more so over the summer during the AAU circuit playing for team New Heights. She had been strongly fascinated with the Cards as well...for several years.
Syd is a lefty who is drawing some comparisons to former Card guard Shoni Schimmel in regards to her scoring prowess and flamboyant style of play. She popped for 63 points in a game as an eighth-grader.
She was spotted in a golf cart with Samantha Williams on campus by my illustrious co-host Jeff "Worldwide" McAdams on Sunday as he was headed to Field Hockey. I got the message from him and thought..."Hey, that's good! She's still here on a Sunday afternoon."
Christ the King has turned out a few pretty fair hoopsters in the girls high school side. The names Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Chamique Holdsclaw and Bria Smith may be familiar to UofL WBB (or any WBB) fans.
The Top-50 prospect will add depth and skill to a Cards guards contingent that is already looking very solid.
Welcome to the "Ville", Syd!
