Winter Storm Brings Friday Dormancy
The only team scheduled to play yesterday was tennis, as they were set to host Ball State at the Bass Rudd Tennis Center. Unfortunately, with the winter storm bringing ice and some snow to Louisville and a whole lot of snow to the middle of Indiana, yesterday's match had to be postponed. The match will now take place on February 11th, just one week later. Louisville is next back in action on the road tomorrow against Vanderbilt. It will be the first time they venture away from the nest this season.
After a successful meet last weekend at home, Louisville Track & Field is off to hit the road once more. This weekend, the Cards have headed up to Notre Dame for the Meyo Invitational, though the results and start lists for the events so far indicate that the whole team may not be competing. Louisville had no participants in the long or high jumps or the weight throw yesterday, and Gabriela Leon is not listed in the roster for the pole vault today. Either way, today's events get underway at 9:45AM and you can follow along on the Endurance Timing site or the Louisville Track & Field Twitter account.
Yesterday, Louisville announced the broadcast plan for the lacrosse season, and it includes three games on the linear ACCN channel. Louisville will play Duke on ACCN in Durham on March 17th, and they'll host Ohio State and Notre Dame on the channel on March 31st and April 23rd, respectively. The Ohio State game is on a Thursday night, so should be expected to be in Cardinal Stadium, and we'll see if the Notre Dame game is shifted to there as well for the better video infrastructure. The remainder of Louisville's home games and conference road games will be on ACCNX. The Cards open the season on the road in Colorado against the Buffs next Friday and will take on Denver on Sunday.
The New York Liberty are becoming less of the Louisville Liberty than we all hoped. After the Liberty seemed to be rebuilding a Louisville final four team, Sandy Brondello has come in and made some changes. The most recent were the addition of Stef Dolson and resigning of Rebecca Allen. Those roster moves demanded some space to be made, and Jaz Jones was a casualty of such a change. She and Neah Odom were waived yesterday. Kylee Shook and Asia Durr remain on the Liberty, but with free agency and the draft still to come, no roster spot across the league is locked in quite yet. We'll hope for both of them to keep their spots and for Jaz to find a new home.
Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast
Once more, I'll be out this week. Fortunately, the tasks remaining in my office are few and that space should be ready for me to move back in before the end of the weekend. In my absence, four will be available to carry the show. They'll talk the big basketball wins, including a career night for HVL, and look ahead to the remainder of the Louisville basketball season along with the upcoming spring sports. As always, you can check out the live stream of the show by going to the Cardinal Couple YouTube page and clicking on the live video. Jeff usually creates that about an hour before the show, which officially starts at 11 AM Eastern. If the live time doesn't work for you, there are plenty of playback options, so be sure to check out whichever is best for you!
