After a holiday slumber, the Barbour Shop is back open. The hot topic in the shop today is UofL women’s basketball and I have to say that UofL women’s basketball is the best team at UofL right now. I repeat, UofL women’s basketball is the best team at UofL right now. That’s right, I just typed that. Not to mention that it’s hard to argue that Jeff Walz isn’t the best coach on campus right now because wait for it….he is!

The drubbing of 2nd ranked Notre Dame was the nation’s introduction to a very special team of young women. For some UofL fans, it may have been their introduction as well. It was exciting basketball. The player movement, the passing, the shooting, the incredible defense; it was a gorgeous display of the game of basketball.

Louisville Basketball - KFC Yum Center

Louisville fans have been eagerly waiting to find out who the next permanent head coach will be for the men’s basketball program. Tim Sullivan with the Courier Journal has said that Kenny Payne checks all the boxes, but that was met with a very mixed reaction from fans.

Now that it is December, we have found our first Grinch of the holiday season. His name is Kevin Willard. Willard was an assistant to He Who Shall Not Be Named (Pitino) from 2001-2007 and even recruited David Padgett. While he compliments how well David has handled everything the past few months, he also mentions that he has no emotional attachment to UofL since Pitino and Jurich are both gone. We also can’t fully blame him, he has been gone for a while. Either way, Sunday should be fun when Seaton Hall visits the Yum! Center at 4.
