U of L Women's Basketball Team plays its first pre-season game Nov. 9

Posted: Updated:

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.
