Day 7: Monday Blahs and Rick Pitino’s Speech

Journal, Day 7. LUKE: School was one of those Mondays that drag on quite a while but not much work. Though when I see it’s almost November I can’t really believe it. I’m not that normal in that I don’t really want to grow up but it’s a part of life and there is definitely some benefits to growing up like being able to do a lot more stuff and have fun doing more stuff. Other than homework and such nothing much happened . RICK: I have plenty of opportunity to see public speakers. For two years, I witnessed how difficult…

Lady Cards Bow Out to Gonzaga, 76-69

  After digging themselves an early hole, the Cardinals weren’t able to claw back to overtake the Bulldogs in their Sweet 16 matchup. In a home game for Gonzaga, Louisville wasn’t able to find its stride until the second half. Freshman Shoni Schimmel, the proclaimed female Jimmer Fredette, missed 12 of her first 13 shots and couldn’t find her groove until late in the game. For the first time in the tourney she played like a Freshman.   The Bulldogs are the lowest seed to ever make the elite 8 in NCAA Women’s history, but boast the highest scoring offense…

Downtown: A Yum Complaint and Doc Crow’s

I hate to rain on the parade of civic and school pride as it relates to the University of Louisville’s phenomenal success as the home team at the KFC Yum Center, but all the prosperity has created a bit of a problem for the women’s program. The Lady Cards took care of Seton Hall, 59-49, in a game devoid of much excitement on the floor. U of L got an early lead and held it throughout against an abysmal 8-20 team before an announced crowd of 9,875 on Senior Day.  Mine and Luke’s favorite player, second-leading scorer Shoni Schimmel, played…

The Biggest Game in Town

Last night, more people got their entertainment from a women’s college basketball game than from anything else going on in Louisville. 15,601. It was only the third largest crowd of the season for the Lady Cards, but remarkable because it wasn’t the opposition that attracted the crowd — Not Tennessee, not Kentucky, not Connecticut — but merely one of the top-tier squads in the Big East, Rutgers. The Knights, 5-1 in the league, kept it close until midway through the 2nd half, when U of L pulled away with a 17-0 run, winning 56-45. The Cards are now 5-3 in…
