Kyle Funkhouser, Mariya Moore Earn ACC Weekly Honors


Another day, another couple of Louisville Cardinals earning ACC weekly honors. This time around it is baseball player Kyle Funkhouser and women’s basketball player Mariya Moore.

Funkhouser – ACC Pitcher of the Week

Kyle Funkhouser was named ACC Pitcher of the Week on Monday. Not only that, he was also named as a Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. The junior righthander gave up just one hit in seven shutout innings in Friday’s season opening 5-1 win over Alabama State. Funkhouser also added 12 strikeouts. He is now 19-4 in his collegiate career. Not too bad!

The 7th ranked Cards (2-1) are scheduled to have their home opener on Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET against Eastern Kentucky.

Moore – ACC Freshman of the Week

When you score the most points for a UofL freshman since Shoni Schimmel, you are probably doing something right. Mariya Moore scored 28 points on Sunday to lead the Cards to a comeback win over 17th ranked North Carolina 75-66. Add that to her 15 point and 8 assist performance against Clemson, and you see why Moore was named ACC Freshman of the Week.

The Cards play at Virginia Tech on Thursday on ESPN3 at 7 p.m. ET.
