Sunday Cardinal Couple

WNBA Round-up

The WNBA giveth, and the WNBA taketh away.

Case had a great article yesterday about all of the former UofL players in the WNBA being active on Friday, including on opposite sides of the court from each other.  Today?  Well, the WNBA was in action yesterday, but no former Cards.  A quick rundown of the action: The Atlanta Dream came up short against the Dallas Wings, 85-75; The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun put on an offensive clinic, with the Sky coming out on top 100-93; and finally probably the best game of the day, the Sue Bird-less Seattle Storm were nonetheless victorious over the Phoenix Mercury.

Cards will be in action today, though.  Angel McCoughtry and the Las Vegas Aces will take the court at 5pm vs Jaz Jones, Kylee Shook, and the New York Liberty.  For the nightcap, Myisha Hines-Allen and The Washington Mystics look to avoid falling below .500 against the Indiana Fever at 7pm on ESPN2.  The other game today doesn't have any Cards in it, but includes a great match-up of some excellent veteran WNBA players with Sylvia Fowles and the Minnesota Lynx taking on Candace Parker and The Los Angeles Sparks.  That on tips at 3pm on ESPN.

More Sports Fall

The Mid-American Conference (MAC) announced yesterday that they are postponing all fall sports, with the intention to play in the spring.

What relevance is this to UofL women's sports, which is the core of what we cover here?  Nothing directly, however it is likely that the MAC was influenced by the recent news out of Louisville of 29 players testing positive for Covid-19 after an off-campus party.

Additionally, most commentary and analysis suggests that the MAC could be the first domino to fall of other conferences making much the same decision.  Previously, of FBS Football schools and conferences, only UConn, who competes independently in FBS, had announced cancellation of Football for the fall.  No Division I schools or conferences had previously announced a cancellation or postponement of all fall sports.

If you're looking for competition, the Cardinal Couple Crew have you covered as we continue the CCRH summer quiz.  We had a full house for this one, with Jared, Case, myself, and Paulie all a part of the fun. Jared continued his dominance over Case and I. Can you beat him? Give it a try.

WNBA coverage, the latest on Covid-19 updates, including discussion of "The Party" at UofL and the implications of it also were on the agenda, and more.
