Hines-Allen Tabbed Preseason ACC Player of the Year, Louisville Women’s Basketball Picked Second In Polls
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Myisha Hines-Allen warranted plenty of attention during the Cardinals’ campaign last season in becoming the second conference player of the year in women’s basketball program history.
Her eye-popping totals as a sophomore have led to lofty expectations from those around the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The University of Louisville junior on Wednesday was named the ACC’s Preseason Player of the Year by both the league’s coaches and the Blue Ribbon Panel, the conference’s media and sports information directors. She is the first student-athlete in the program’s 41-year history to earn the distinction.

Here is the brutal 2016-17 Men’s Basketball Schedule just tweeted out by Kenny Klein:
Sports illustrated released it’s breakout Sophomore list for the upcoming college basketball season. Even though Luke Winn called Louisville “Sophomore Breakout U” there is only one Cardinal on this list of five breakout players. Luke explains that there is a reason why some players didn’t make the list. The Breakout Sophomore Formula—now in its eighth season on SI.com!—identifies scoring potential in players who didn’t put up significant points as freshmen, yet had promising advanced-statistical profiles. The formula strives to avoid too-obvious selections, and therefore its 2016–17 picks are restricted to players that averaged single-digit points last season and played not much more than 20 minutes per game. Check out the full article below to see who made the list. Read the rest of this entry
