All Day Hoops...all day thrills

Beginning with Miami's thrashing of Pitt and ending with NC State roughshodding the B.C. Eagles, day two of the ACC tournament in Greensboro, NC was action-packed.

It opened with Miami jumping out to a 18-12 first quarter lead and never looking back. Adrienne Motley had 19 for the Canes...who will get FSU Friday. 

Duke and Virginia was an epic battle. Duke looking horrible with three point execution from the Blue Devils
(1-15) but they got huge inside games from Azura Stevens and Oderah Chidom and held off Faith Randolph to advance and face Notre Dame with a 57-53.

Game three was even more exciting...Wake Forest leading Georgia Tech almost the entire way before falling in the final five seconds on two Roddreka Rogers free throws. Amber Campbell missed a follow up at the buzzer that would have tied it.  With the 67-65 win...the Rambling Wreck gets the Cards at 6 p.m. tonight.

In the nightcap NC State ran past B.C. 42-18 in the first half en route to a 74-60 win. Kith Spencer led the Wolf Pack with 17 points on 6 for 7 shooting and 4-4 from the charity stripe. 

Boston College got 16 from Nicole Boudreau and 14 out of Kellie Hughes. The two took 19 threes and hit 10. NC STATE and Syracuse will meet in the final game of tonight's quarters. 

So Louisville will battle the Rambling Wreck at 6 p.m. tonight and will need to contain the powerful trio of Aaliyah Whiteside, Roddreka Rogers and Antonia Peresson. They'll counter with the ACC Player of the year in Myisha Hines- Allen, first team ACC Mariya Moore and first team ACC Freshman Asia Durr. 

No word yet on the status of Cortnee Walton. The Cards leading rebounder dislocated her non-shooting pinky in the Pitt game Feb.28th. 

The Cards should handle Georgia Tech without much trouble. Louisville won the regular season contest in Atlanta 78-65.


Louisville Lacrosse goes to 6-0 with their first-ever win over Northwestern 10-4 Thursday afternoon at the Louisville Lacrosse Stadium. 

The Cards got an early goal from Cortnee Daley, who had three scores on the day. After falling behind 2-1, Louisville went on a 4-0 run to end the half...two net-finders from Julia Wood, Kaylin Morissett connecting with nine minutes left in the half and Daley making it 5-2 with 1:48 on the scoreboard. 

After a Wildcat tally to begin the second stanza...Morissette connected with 22 minutes remaining and then set up Kelli Gerding 22 seconds later for the 7-3 Cards lead.

Northwestern would cut the lead to 7-4 before UofL went on a 3-0 run over the final 15 minutes with goals from Wood, Daley (their third each) and Heidi Smith.

The win equals the best start in Louisville Lacrosse history. Brittany Read had 13 saves in the match.

Louisville returns to ACC play Saturday when they host Notre Dame. Action begins at 2 p.m.

  5. Paulie, do you get the Cards vs Ga Tech on local TV in L'ville today ? I was wondering if ACC has a network (Fox Sports?) that covers the league like SEC and Pac 12 does.
