Louisville leaves Big East for the ACC; replaces Maryland

The Atlantic Coast Conference has raided the Big East again.

On Wednesday, the presidents and chancellors unanimously voted to add Louisville as a replacement for Maryland.

Maryland announced last week that it would be joining the Big Ten in 2014.

The ACC also considered two other Big East schools, Cincinnati and Connecticut.

 

Adding the Cardinals brings the ACC to 14 full members, with former Big East rivals Pittsburgh and Syracuse joining conference play in 2013.

Louisville will be the seventh Big East school to leave for the ACC in the last 10 years.

Obviously, by adding Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Louisville in the past 15 months has made the ACC even stronger in football and especially in basketball.

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.

Kim Mulkey

Baylor University Bears center Brittney Griner, who averaged 23.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5.2 blocked shots per game this season, was named the Associated Press women’s basketball Player of the Year.

Just a junior, the Houston native is 6’8, 208-pounds, wears a men’s size 17 or 18 shoe and has a arm span of 86″.

Griner is the first Baylor player to win the award. She received 36 votes Saturday from the 40-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25.

Griner’s win ended a run of three straight seasons that a Connecticut player has been player of the year, Maya Moore won the award last season.

Lady Bears head coach Kim Mulkey was selected the AP Coach of the Year.

Mulkey has guided her team to an undefeated season, and Baylor needs one more win to become the first team in NCAA history to win 40 games in a season. They’ll play Notre Dame in the women’s championship game on Tuesday night in Denver.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State baseball team hit the field for the first time as a team in 2012 Friday afternoon in Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

The Buckeyes return 15 letterwinners off a 2011 team that finished 13-11 in Big Ten play and advanced to the conference tournament at Huntington Park. However, the next three weeks leading up to the season opener against USF in the Big Ten/Big East Challenge in St. Petersburg, Fla., will be crucial to the maturation of team that welcomes 14 newcomers.
