Louisville, KY — The Louisville Women’s Basketball team is taking center stage on national television when they face the 11-time National Champion UConn Huskies.
The Cardinals and the Huskies will face off on February 12th, 2018 at 7PM. The match will be aired live on ESPN2.
This will be the first time Louisville has faced their former conference foe since 2014.
UConn holds a 15-1 advantage in the series.
Louisville Women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz has been selected to serve as the court coach for the 2017 USA National Team Training Camp.
This marks Coach Walz fourth USA Basketball assignment. Coach Walz previously served as an assistant coach for the gold-medal 2014 USA U18 National Team and the 2015 USA U19 World Championship Team. He most recently served as the head coach for the gold medal winning 2017 USA U23 National Team.
Louisville, KY — The Louisville women’s basketball team will face six teams during its non-conference slate that won 20 or more games last season.
“Once again, we have a tough non-conference schedule, but that’s what it is all about,” said head coach Jeff Walz. “We want to play the best because it helps us get better throughout the year and prepares us for conference play.”
Louisville kicks off the season on November 10th at the KFC Yum! Center as the Cardinals face Southeast Missouri in the opening round of the WNIT.
The first road game will be Louisville’s first test of the season. The Cardinals take on the Buckeyes of Ohio State in the Countdown to Columbus Tournament on November 12th. Ohio State went 28-7 last season, bowing out of the NCAA Tournament in the Sweet Sixteen.
Other notable teams the Cardinals will face include Murray State, Indiana, South Dakota State, Vanderbilt, MTSU and Air Force.
As usual, Louisville will also face in State rival, Kentucky, in Lexington on December 17th.
The Cardinals will take on Air Force on December 20th before entering league play.
However, Louisville takes a break from the ACC slate and heads to Storrs, Connecticut to battle 11 time National Champion UConn Huskies on February 12th.
Sophomore Brianna Jones and freshman Ciera Johnson will transfer from the University of Louisville.
Johnson was a McDonald’s All-American in 2016. She played in 37 games for the Cardinals, averaging 4-points and 2.3 rebounds.
Jones entered Louisville as a five star recruit and played in 43 games during her tenure with the Cardinals.
Both players are looking to expand their minutes. Which is certainly understandable considering Louisville is welcoming a top four recruiting class that boasts three 5-stars.
Card Nation will certainly miss these two outstanding young women and we wish them both the very best at the new schools.
Yesterday, CSZ reported that junior Mariya Moore would transfer to a school on the west coast so she could play closer to her home.
While the Cardinals have lost three players this week, Louisville is bringing in the fourth ranked class. The 2017 class boasts three 5-star rated players, two of which were McDonald’s All-Americans.
Junior Guard Mariya Moore is transferring from the University of Louisville, per several sources.
The news comes one day after Louisville and head coach Jeff Walz nabbed Five star point guard, Mykasa Robinson. Needless to say, it’s been a roller coaster for fans of the Louisville women.
Moore, a Hercules, California native, wants to be closer to home. While the specifics of where she is transferring are unknown, Coach Walz told the Courier-Journal, Moore wanted to go back to the west coast so her family could watch her play her final season.
Moore has been granted a full release from UofL.
Mariya Moore came into Louisville as a highly touted recruit. Moore was tabbed as a McDonald’s All American and was ranked 42nd in the 2014 class.
Last season, Moore started 36 games for the Cardinals. The junior averaged 12-points, while leading the time in assists with 175 on the season. Moore was the third leading scorer for Louisville and a crucial part of Big Three.
Mariya Moore will certainly be missed as she has had a profound impact on the Louisville Cardinals. But, CSZ and all of Card Nation wish her the best as she finds a new home closer to her family.
Thanks for the memories, Mariya!!
