The success in UofL athletics just continues to happen. Here are some things to get you caught up!
*Rick Pitino took some friends fishing in the Bahamas. With the lucky streak he is on, this happened. That is an 80 pound marlin! So just like everyone else in Major League Baseball, Pitino decided it would be fun to dominate the Marlins.
The 6th ranked UofL Women’s Basketball team (4-0) defeated UCF last night 94-73. They are playing in the Hardwood Tournament of Hope in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Tonight, the Cards battle Gonzaga (5-0). The game tips off at 9:30 pm ET and can be heard on 790 WKRD AM radio. If they win, they will take on the winner of Oregon State and Winthrop in the Championship game!
The women’s basketball game against Kentucky on Sunday December 2 was originally scheduled for 2:00 pm. That game will now start at 6:00 pm and be shown on ESPNU and aired on 790 WKRD radio.
Another schedule change is the EKU game on Wednesday November 28th. It will now tip at 7:30 pm and not 7:00 pm.
The 8th ranked Cards next game will be on Thursday at 8:00 pm at Austin Peay.
On Friday night, the 9th ranked UofL Women’s Basketball team will host 12/15 ranked Texas A&M (2010-11 National Champion) at 7 pm at the KFC Yum! Center!
