The Cards are now 8-0 on the year after a red hot start to the year. They have four road games before they return home to the KFC Yum! enter to start conference play.
Louisville seemed to turn heads with their win. The Cards had some preseason doubters, especially with the loss of Asia Durr. But those doubters didn't seem to know just how talented this year's roster is. And with the incredible coaching staff we have it was an easy turnaround.
This year's squad has learned fast. The defense has continuously improved and shut down some major offensive threats. On offense, the pace and ball movement has quickened and starting to reflect that of Jeff Walz teams from the past. Kylee Shook has begun to make her presence known in the paint and the Cards are grasping the idea of team play.
Here's the Top 10 (plus a few teams of local interest):
5 Oregon State
6 South Carolina
8 Florida State
10 Mississippi State
13 NC State
Four ACC teams are currently ranked. The Cards also face Kentucky soon, who sits at 15th in the country.
Dana Evans Earns Awards
Dana Evans earned espnW National Player of the Week and ACC Player of the Week honors after an impressive performance at the Paradise Jam.
The junior guard averaged 21.3 points per game while shooting 47%. She shot .524 from three-point range and was a near perfect 17-18 at the free throw line while at the "Jam".
Evans has stepped up as a leader on the team and starting to show her colors as a true point guard.
Louisville travels to Columbus for a match-up against Ohio State this Thursday. The Buckeyes are at 4-3 so far this season and head coach Kevin McGuff has quite a young roster, with 10 of his 13 players either freshmen or sophomores.
OSU has lost to UConn 62-73, South Dakota 53-68 and Ohio 68-74.
