Tennis Falls; Softball Rescheduled -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Tennis Falls at Ranked Syracuse

Men's basketball wasn't the only team to find themselves outmatched against Syracuse this week as the women's tennis team took on the 25th ranked Orange at Bass Rudd yesterday. Louisville found themselves tied after losing the doubles point and winning the first singles match to finish, but that singles match would wind up being their only victory. The Cards ultimately fell 6-1, though they did have multiple matches go to tie breaking sets. Louisville played close for most of the competition, with head coach Mark Beckham saying that it came down to losing too many deuce points and not putting score pressure on the opponent. 

Raven Neely was the only Cardinal to be victorious and was part of the doubles team that led 5-2 before their game was rendered moot. The overall loss drops Louisville to 9-3 and is their third straight loss. The Cards are surely frustrated, but there is still plenty of time for them to turn it around, as they still have 12 matchups on the schedule. Louisville hosts Clemson tomorrow at Noon before heading on the road for a week's worth of matches. Hopefully they'll be able to right the ship and get back to the winning ways they saw in the non-conference schedule.

Softball Game 1 Rescheduled

Due to inclement weather in Knoxville, Louisville's first game of the Tennessee Classic has been pushed to the afternoon. The Cards will now take on Kansas at 2:30 instead of the previously scheduled 9:30. As of now, they are still scheduled to face Bradley once today and once tomorrow, but I feel as though there is a good chance that it becomes a Sunday double header for the Cardinals and Braves. Keep up with Louisville Softball's twitter page for news about additional potential reschedules and for score updates.

EDITOR NOTE: ALL Softball cancelled today in Knoxville. They'll try to resume Sunday. 

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour

For the first time in awhile, the four knuckleheads are back in the studio together for the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour. We'll have plenty to talk about as we recap the week in Louisville women's athletics, including Louisville WBBs second loss of the year and their Jekyll and Hyde follow-up performance. Tune in to WCHQ at 11AM via 100.9 FM,, the WCHQ App (which has gotten a big update), or via their YouTube channel.

Until next time, Go Cards!
