The UofL women’s basketball team held their first practice on Wednesday afternoon. Jeff Walz should have his team ready for another big season, which is becoming the norm here in Louisville for the Cards. Sophomores Mariya Moore and Myisha Hines-Allen gave their comments afterwards.
The ACC released their preseason picks for many different categories like Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, how the teams will finish, and more. One positive about the Cards being in the ACC is not having to be in the same conference as UConn. However, Notre Dame is still a very formidable league opponent.
Coach Jeff Walz has his Louisville Cardinals right there on the doorstep of a National Championship. Recruiting has never been better for the women’s basketball team, so things are only getting better. The Cards were picked to finish 3rd in the ACC this season. Here are the rest of the preseason categories.
The final selections were made for this year’s McDonald’s All-American game that will be played April 2, 2014 in Chicago, IL. The Louisville Cardinals do not have a signee that made the final cut. This comes as a surprise as Shaquan Aaron has been putting up triple-doubles like it’s his job. Quentin Snider also had a shot at making it. Hopefully this means we see these guys at the Derby Classic here in Louisville.
However, there was some good news for Jeff Walz and the women’s basketball team as they have 2 signees that made the cut. Myisha Hines-Allen from Montclair, NJ and Mariya Moore from Richmond, CA both made it.
Louisville head coach Jeff Walz announced that five highly ranked players have signed national letters-of-intent to play for the University of Louisville next season. Sydney Brackemyre, Arica Carter, Ariana Freeman, Myisha Hines-Allen, and Mariya Moore have all signed to play for the Cardinals next season.
