Lady Cards Knock Off LSU For Sweet 16 Berth

Syracuse Louisville BasketballAngel McCoughtry dropped 28 points and grabbed 9 rebounds for the Louisville Cardinals as they knocked off the 6th-seeded LSU Lady Tigers 62-52 to advance to their second straight sweet 16.  It didn’t look easy as LSU often exchanged leads with the Lady Cards throughout the game but Louisville was able to control the pace of the game, make a few quick runs and ultimately come out on top.

LSU’s Allison Hightower scored 21 points and dished out 5 assists but that just wasn’t enough for LSU who failed to advance to the sweet 16 for the first time in six seasons.  Louisville’s Candyce Bingham played the supporting role as she was able to score 17 points and grab 6 rebounds.  

In the end, Louisville proved to be the tougher team as they were able to hold off the Lady Tigers on their home floor.  The Lady Cardinals continue their quest for their first national championship when they take on 2nd-seeded Baylor on Saturday in Raleigh, NC.

The good news is that Louisville is playing good basketball, Angel McCoughtry is playing like she’s the best in the country, and the Cards look like they may be able to make a good run through the regionals and into the Final Four.  The bad news is that all roads look like they will eventually lead to playing Connecticut who has beaten Louisville twice this year by an average of 33 points.

UConn just seems to be on another level from the rest of women’s college basketball.

  1. Thank you fairly considerably for taking your power so as to help with these of us

  2. Hmm it seems like your weblog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I will just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring weblog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice weblog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
