Brandie Radde has apparently left the University of Louisville women’s basketball team. Coach Jeff Walz has yet to make an official announcement but the conclusion is inescapable.
The 5-foot-11 junior guard never made the trip for the Providence game, and she is no longer listed on the Lady Cards’ official roster. Radde’s departure came days after she started for the Lady Cards against UConn. She played 12 minutes in that game while being held scoreless.
Radde started in six of the Lady Cards’ 21 games this season, averaging 3.8 points per game. She also was averaging 19 minutes of playing time.
The Niles, Michigan native was considered a three-point shooting specialist, hitting five of nine attempts and collecting 19 points in a recent 76-60 win over South Florida. She was second only to Angel McCoughtry in three-point attempts.
Thanks to Sonja for the heads up.
