Word today that that Cameron Hall, a point guard from Glasgow, has signed with Campbellsville University. He’s considered by some to be among the best point guards in his region, averaging 24 points per game.
The signing is relevant because his dad, Jeff Hall, was a starting guard on the University of Louisville’s 1986 national championship team. Jeff also happens to be Cameron’s basketball coach at Glasgow High School.
Jeff returned to the coaching ranks last season after working as in the financial services industry for five years. He has also coached at Fairview, Allen County, Rose Hill Christian and Fern Creek.

Apparently too many quarterbacks available to new coach Charlie Strong for Zach Stoudt’s liking at U of L. Stoudt has stated that he will be transferring, probably to a junior college. Recruits Joe Rocco and Luke Woodley are slated to join a pool that includes veteran Adam Froman, Justin Burke and Will Stein next season. Something had to give, but there still may be too many.

Quaneisha McCurty, the 6-foot-6 commit from Georgia to the U of L women’s basketball team is the real thing, according to Adam Krohn, a sportswriter for the Dalton Citizen. He told Card Game’s Sonja:
She is indeed 6 feet, 6 inches tall and, last season, was widely considered by many media outlets (us, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Chattanooga Times Free Press, etc.) to be one of the state’s best sophomores. She has incredibly long arms and can blockÂ just about any shot, great coordination, an above average mid-rangeÂ shot and excellent post moves. She’s fairly quick â€” extremely quickÂ for a player her size â€”Â can move up and down the floor well and isÂ an asset in the transition game. She plays with a chip on her shoulder, which can be just as helpful as hurtful at times. As longÂ as her attitude doesn’t get in her way (but again, she was only aÂ sophomore last season), she is a legitimate D-I prospect in my mindÂ and hands down the best player in this area.

Few were surprised when a green Louisville women’s team was throttled 86-56 Wednesday by a veteran Tennessee team at Knoxville. Sonja report is here. Joe, everybody’s favorite bar owner in Gatlinburg, was there in person and his report is here.
