July brings in the recruiting road trips for Louisville WBB coaches -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


If you're travelling this summer and happen to see a familiar face in the airport or at the car rental stand...don't be too surprised. It's after the Fourth of July, which can mean only one thing...the UofL coaches are out checking out the future talent for Louisville women's basketball. 

Jeff Walz and staff will spend the next week or so hitting the hot spots for club basketball and tournaments to evaluate the potential next Cardinals. 

Walz started his Wednesday not too far down the Lexington at the Run For the Roses Classic in Lexington. A couple of players participating there that he most likely had his eye on were Lindsey Duvall and Anastasia Hayes. He also hit the USA training facilities out in Colorado Springs to watch U18 competition with Dana Evans, Evina Westbrook and Chennedy Carter all in action against the Japan U24 squad. That's 1,155 miles for the Louisville head coach. Maybe he borrowed THE ENTERPRISE'S transporter device...

Duvall (ESPN #23 for 2017) and Hayes (#17 ESPN) are both guards and common sense would dictate that the Cards will be looking to add to the front court next season with both Taylor Johnson here for just the upcoming season and Briahanna Jackson in her final year. Evans, the #7 ranked in the 2017 class, is another top floor general guard. Westbrook (#2 ESPN) may be the best off-guard in the class...Carter (#8 ESPN) another top-flight combo-guard. 

Word gets back to us that Sam Purcell is in the Lone Star state...checking out 2019 top-rated Nyah Green and Michaela Onyenwere in Dallas. He also had time to take in a little WNBA action with the Dallas Wings, based on his Twitter feed. 

Good luck to the coaches as they make the trips and the stops in search of the future of Louisville basketball. And, if you happen to see one of them in your neck of the woods...flash 'em the "L" and shout out a "Go Cards!".
