Jayda Curry Transfers to Louisville Women's Basketball
With the official start of the postseason for all teams, Jeff Walz has already worked his magic. Louisville women's basketball picked up a transfer from California in Jayda Curry. The 5-6 point guard has two years of eligibility remaining.
Although there was an early report that Jayda Curry is related to NBA player Steph Curry, those reports turned out to be false. There is no known relation between the two.
During her freshman campaign in the 2021-2022 season, Curry was named Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshmen Team. She led the conference in scoring with 18.6 points per game.
In her sophomore season, Curry was named an an honorable mention for the Pac-12 Team by the coaches. She ranked sixth in the conference and first on the team in scoring with 15.5 points per game. Curry is the second fastest player in Cal history to reach 500 points.
Curry joins a Louisville roster that currently lacks depth for next season. As of right now, the returners for next season include Hailey Van Lith (rising senior), Olivia Cochran (rising senior), Merissah Russell (rising senior), Nyla Harris (rising sophomore), Alexia Mobley (rising redshirt sophomore), and Imani Lester (rising redshirt freshman)
Another "get" from Cal. Remember Kianna Smith? Welcome to "the Ville" Jayda and enjoy our program and town. .
ACC Softball Standings
A game three cancellation at Syracuse more than likely took away a chance for another win for Louisville softball. The Cards have won nine straight conference games since starting ACC play with a pair of losses at Duke. The 9-2 (.818) record is enough to put the Cards in third play in the conference at the moment. A win would've improved their record to 10-3, still third place, while a loss would've dropped Louisville to 9-3 and been in a tie for third with Virginia Tech.
#5 Clemson remains perfect in conference play at 12-0. The Tigers are 36-1 on the season with their only loss being a 1-0 neutral site loss to Tennessee.
#7 Florida State is 8-1 (.889) in the ACC and sitting comfortably in second. The Seminoles are 2907 on the year. FSU and Clemson play each other this coming weekend.
#12 Virginia Tech is 9-3 (.750) in conference play. The 2022 ACC Champions are 27-8 on the year and recently fell in a series against Duke.
#13 Duke (10-5, .667) and Virginia (6-6, .500) make up the rest of the teams in the ACC at or above the .500 mark.
Notre Dame (5-6-1, .458), North Carolina (4-8, .333), and NC State (4-8, .333) are in the next grouping in the conference.
The bottom dwellers in the ACC are Pirr (2-7, .222), Georgia Tech (2-10, .167), Syracuse (1-9-1, .136), and Boston College (1-8, .111).
Louisville has a favorable conference schedule this year. The Cards already have series wins against Pitt, NC State, and Syracuse. Notre Dame, Virginia, and Boston College all remain on the schedule with all three being at or below .500 in the ACC. Louisville does close out the regular season at FSU.
The Cards return home to host Notre Dame for a Thursday-Saturday series at Ulmer Stadium.
CONGRATULATIONS KAREN J. !!!
The winner of the 2023 NCAA WBB Cardinal Couple Pick 'Em is....drum roll, please... Karen J. She survived a four-way tie for first place on championship night because her total points prediction was closest to the actual score. Jared came in second.
If this looks like the same results for our ACC Pick 'Em...it was.
So, since Paulie never saves anything, Karen J, paging Karen J to send Paulie an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and notify him WHICH prize you'd like (the $25 gift card to Cracker Barrel or the $25 gift card to Starbucks) and where to mail it to.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
