The good news for University of Louisville women’s basketball fans who saw their team upset by Virginia last Sunday is the Cavaliers have crashed after upsetting UofL on Sunday. The Cavaliers were booted out of the ACC tournament by Georgia Tech 62-52 Thursday.
UofL’s loss to Virginia is still hard to stomach, given their six losses in the past eight games.
Jeff Walz’ team has had a few days to get over the embarrassment and should be highly motivated as it takes on a strong North Carolina team in the quarterfinals Friday at Greensboro. The Tar Heels, with a 24-7 record overall, finished sixth in the ACC regular season with a 10-6 mark.
North Carolina has won four of five games since losing by nine points to Louisville on February 15th. The other loss was a one-point decision at Duke on Sunday.
The UofL coach says his team has focused on half-court execution following the Virginia loss. “Hopefully, you’ll see a much better pace Friday night, how we execute and take care of the basketball,” he said.
The game against North Carolina will be telecast on Fox Sports South (Channel 70 on Time Warner Cable) and streamed on ESPN3.com.
