Louisville Lacrosse sinks the Commodores 15-5...Asia Taylor headed to Indiana Fever -- Wednesday CARDINAL COUPLE


Louisville Lacrosse jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first fifteen minutes of Tuesday's lacrosse match in Nashville and Hannah Koloski scored a career high six goals in Louisville's 15-5 win over Vanderbilt.

The Cards struck very early in this one...Cortnee Daley scoring just 16 seconds into action and then Daley connected again with a minute gone in play. By the half, the Cards held a 8-1 lead...Koloski had three scores on board, Kaylin Morissette and Daley had found the net twice and Julia Wood was in the books with one. 

Morissette and Daley would finish with four goals each in the rout. The Cards dominated shots on goal 39-19 and a 19-3 advantage in draw controls. Louisville (4-0) got eight saves from Brittany Read in the contest...which was played with a continuous running clock over the final 11 minutes. 

A bit of a change in scoring than we usually see out of the Cardinals...with just four players accounting for the 15 scores. Nevertheless, a convincing win and confidence builder for this veteran squad against a quality opponent on the road. 

Kellie Young's laxers will start ACC play on Saturday when they host the Boston College Eagles at the Louisville Lacrosse Stadium. First draw is scheduled for noon. 

A special congratulations to Kaylin Morissette, who was named to lacrosse's Tewaaraton Award women's watch list. She's one of 50 in consideration for the award that honors the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. 18 ACC women are on the list. 



Congratulations to former UofL WBB star Asia Taylor for being signed to WNBA's Indiana Fever's roster as a free agent. 

A-Tayy has been playing in Israel and South Korea after spending the 2014 season with the Minnesota LYNX. Talk about two powder keg locations to play hoops at! 

Taylor was the AAC's most improved player in 2014 while at Louisville and a first-team all-league selection. She also had the most blocked shots for the Cards in the 2013-14 season. 

We always felt that A-Tayy deserved and needed another shot at the 'big show' after having to sit on Minnesota's bench behind a deep and talented front line. It's good to see she's getting it and we're ready for a few trips to Indy this summer! 



  1. WTG A-Tayy! Hope you make the squad and have a long career in the WNBA!

    1. Sounds like a trip to Indiana is in my near future.

    2. Yah! Asia! She is one of the most competitive gals I've ever seen play in a Cardinal women's uniform. I'll be on I-65 a bunch if she makes the Fever. I would love to see her play against Angel and Shoni.

  2. Lacrosse is off to a good start. How will they fare in the ACC? Looks like all the ACC teams are in the top 20.

    1. It is the strongest conference by far in the NCAA and the challenges are many. Seven teams in the top 14. Duke, UNC, BC and Virginia have taken losses, though, in the early season. The Cards were preseason ranked seventh in the conference. They'll get home games against BC, Notre Dame, VA Tech and Virginia. On the road at Duke, Syracuse and UNC. The Cards have a great chance at going over .500 in conference play. They also have five non-conference games left...all look to be wins except possibly Northwestern. 12-4 overall and 4-3 in the ACC would be a very decent record in the Cards second season in the ACC.


  3. OT: and from yesterday
    I have always thought that the reason that we have been loosing to KY but then consistently doing better at the end of year is that UK treats the UL game as a major focus of the season. They (which includes some local KY players) emotionally work themselves up to a adrenalin charged emotional pitch which results in over the top play where Jeff maintains this to be just another non-conference early game in the season ( and without local KY players to work up a fever pitch to the others). This results in one game losses but season successes.

    1. Interesting look at it, Sandy. I know that for Epps and now Morris and Cann, it will continue and has been a big game for them. I'm sure that Coach Walz would love to get that loss monkey off his back but, as you said, he realizes that it's just a battle in the overall basketball campaign that gets a squad to the Sweet Sixteen and further in the NCAA Tournament. From a journalistic standpoint, I'd just like to go to Memorial (or Rupp) and walk out of there with a win over them in something...either hoops or volleyball....and look forward to writing the resulting article. Last year was the worst. Night game, long time waiting on Walz to address the media and then the drive back to Louisville. Time to take LPT down.


  4. or p we call it a point to feed we will be using this Joe all over sour protocol Biomuscle XR so what they going to do we going to put powered up right on the point of being is that okay yes and if you can see me the lights are blinking very actively it showing the high activity in the area which is actually good because.
