UConn is “bad for women’s basketball.” Geno Auriemma is a “bully.” It reads like an angry second grader wrote it. But, here we are… Again.
A number of articles have been published recently claiming Connecticut is the problem with women’s basketball. One article went so far to say that the Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma is a “bully” because of the beatdown UConn handed to St. Francis (PA).
But, that could not be further from the truth.
UConn is a dynasty. It’s the perfect example of what can happen when an administration invests in its women’s basketball program.
Steven Enoch has confirmed reports that he will transfer to Louisville to continue his playing career. At 6’11 Enoch will be counted on to help at the 4 or 5 spot for the Cards. He will be forced to sit under NCAA rules next season but will then have two years of eligibility remaining.
A former 4 star prospect out of high school, Enoch averaged 3.4 points and 2.3 rebounds with the Huskies last season. He typically saw 12 minutes of play per game. We here at Cardinal Sports Zone welcome Steven to the Ville!!!!
Four your information, this is the trial.
I wanted to start a series this summer. Sort of a challenge. But really, this is no challenge. This is what I like to do; Talk sh*t. That’s what it says on my resume anyways. Just kidding. Maybe not. Okay, definitely not.
This is a spin-off idea I had after Jeremy’s 55 series. 55 being his favorite number, mine 4 because of David Padgett. I chose number 4 as my number in softball at the Male High School. I was sooooo in-like with David Padgett in high school. So I wanted to publish this series over the summer when my semester and internship with the Derby Festival are officially over. Perhaps a bi-weekly series. Like a pay-check. More like a reality check. So this should be a lot of fun and I hope #Cardnation will enjoy. I’ll start off with a kicker. Like all football games do…

When the Louisville Cardinals leave a conference, it is pretty standard for them to win the conference tournament on their way out. Dating all the way back to the Metro conference days, whenever the Cards just like to leave the previous conference something to remember them by. Let’s hope that continues tonight as we exit the American Athletic Conference.
Below are the results of the final conference tournament results for Louisville for the Metro, Conference USA, Big East, and American…
March 10 (First round)
Louisville 84, Virginia Commonwealth 61
March 11 (Semifinals)
Louisville 81, Tulane 80 (OT)
March 12: (Finals)
Louisville 78, Southern Mississippi 64

The Louisville Cardinals are heading to the ACC soon. That is great for football, we all know that. It is even great for some of our other sports. For basketball, it means we get to play Duke and North Carolina every year, and of course Syracuse, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh as well. So basketball will be very exciting as well. However, let’s enjoy tonight. In fact, let’s enjoy this whole day while the anticipation builds up. Our team is playing in a very special game tonight, and I am not sure we really know how big it is right now. It may take some time and we will look back and say “Wow, we were apart of that final Big East Tournament game.”
