Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports
 

The zone Syracuse played made it tough for Louisville to penetrate. Asia Durr was able to hit four treys though as she scored a career high 23. ACC player of the year Myisha Hines-Allen showed up again with 27 points, 13 rebounds. The Orange however, got key play from Cornelia Fondren and Alexis Peterson once again brought her A game. Syracuse advances to first conference championship for the first time since 1988

Greensboro, NC — The No. 7 Louisville Cardinals battled the No. 17 Syracuse Orange, but the Cardinals came up short in an 80-75 decision.

“We did not come out and play like I thought we would,” Louisville head coach Jeff Walz told the media, “We did not follow a scouting report and, unfortunately, we’re not good enough to just come out and play without following a scout.”

Greensboro, NC — Myisha Hines-Allen wore her dancing shoes and lead the Cardinals to a 60-50 victory over Georgia Tech.

“We knew it was going to be a battle,” Louisville Coach Jeff Walz told the media, “They play hard, they play physical, and they’re a very good basketball team. We’d like to congratulate them. It was a battle for sure. There’s no question about it. And we knew it was going to be.”

The Cardinals won the tip, and Mariya Moore drove to the bucket for two. An early foul by Imani Tilford sent Arica Carter to the line to hit one of two and put the Cardinals up early, 3-0.

Video Of Top Ranked Asia Durr’s Commitment To Louisville

ulwbb

Here is the video of Asia’s commitment to the University of Louisville for those of us that did not get to watch it live. It does take a minute or so to load so be patient. Today was a historical day for Jeff Walz and U of L women’s basketball. Asia’s commitment gives us the #1 ranked recruiting class in 2015 for the moment. We have more targets out there that could solidify the #1 ranking. Enjoy!

We did get another NCAA title this week and the girls of boom are still rolling so there’s that. So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.

1) On Friday night, which seems like a week ago, UL Men’s basketball team lost to a team none of us like….

2) This happened though….

3) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX5xZQYxZpg

6) All jokes aside….Thank you to the following guys

7) Russ Smith

8) SVT

svt

9) Tim Henderson

10) Luuuuuuuuuuuke

11) Seriously, from the bottom of our hearts…Thank you!

13) If he leaves I wanna thank you too Montrezl “MegaTrezl” Harrell for bringing massive monster dunks back to the school synonymous for dunking

14) #HeGone
