University of Louisville's Women's Basketball Team opens the
2013-14 season with an exhibition game on November 5. The teams first regular pre-season game is November 9 against Loyola Chicago. Head Coach Jeff Walz says this
season in the American Athletic Conference will have some challenges.
"We're playing in a new league, so having
the opportunity to get to learn teams, playing (them) for the first time. And
then, of course, we'll play U Conn twice again and they are picked to win the
league and they are picked first in the country," said Walz. "So it is going to
be a tall feat with them but our kids are excited and ready to get started."
U of L was
picked to finish second in the 2013-14 AAC
regular-season title. U of L players Shoni Schimmel, Antonita Slaughter and
Sara Hammond were selected to the preseason all-conference team.
