She hit five of 10 field goal attempts and claimed eight rebounds.

    Anyone who needs a Cards “fix” should come out and watch the Lady Cards play. They are the real deal, having lost only 4 this season, and that is without being full-strength. Yesterday, only 9 players, but their defense was outstanding. Such a great environment also, in the KFC Yum! Center, so family-friendly. Go Cards!

    This team has been devastated by injuries and still keep going. I hope they are healthy come tourney time this could be a special season.
