Cardinal Sports Zone decided to launch during a very busy week in Cardinal athletics. But we knew how busy and fun it would be. That is why we did it. Here are some things you can expect to find during this week:
We will have a Belk Bowl recap. Hopefully you have read the preview and may know a little more now about N.C. St. and what to expect. We would like to recap a UofL victory!
The men’s basketball team starts Big East play on Wednesday against Georgetown. We will get you ready for that game, as well as the women’s game. Double dip of action for Cardinal basketball tomorrow.
And of course, the UofL-UK basketball game on New Year’s Eve! We will take the team approach and not look past Georgetown, but after that game recap is done, look for Thursday and Friday to be all about the UK game. We have talked to some former players to get their take on what the rivalry means to them! Some of these players are Luke Whitehead, Alhaji Mohammed, Brandon Jenkins, and Alvin Sims. We have a few more also. It was really interesting to find out what this game meant to them as players. We will also post some videos from past UofL-UK games to get you ready for the showdown on NYE. We are working on a big Cardinal Rewind interview to post before the game.
As always, look for the schedules and standings to be updated at the end of each day! Thanks for checking the site out. We welcome comments or questions. Go Cards!
