The Louisville Cardinals continued their amazing season today when they swept Cincinnati for the 2nd time in a week. They improved their record to 27-3, 15-1 in the Big East! In the match, junior Caitlin Welch set the single season digs record at UofL! She already has the all-time record at UofL, which she set in the last match with Cincinnati! And senior Gwen Rucker had a big match with 15 kills!
On Sunday, the Cards will attempt to win the Big East Tournament Championship when they take on host school Marquette at 2 pm ET. The game will be shown on ESPNU. This will be the Cards’ 7th appearance in the Big East Championship in only 8 seasons in the Big East.
The Cards have now won 11 matches in a row, and this was their 7th straight sweep! On November 9, the Cards swept Marquette at Cardinal Arena. Let’s hope for a similar result here! Go Cards!
