The University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team always seem to turn a close game into a rout.

Monday night in Louisville against one of their long-time rivals, the Huskies turned an 11-0 run in the first half to a 32-22 lead. In the second half, they pushed it out to 22 and the rout was on in a 68-48 win over #3 Louisville.

UConn goes to 31-0 overall, 18-0 and the regular season champions of the American Athletic Conference.

Breanna Stewart led the way scoring 22 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Helping out on the boards was Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis with 13.

The Cardinals who end the regular season at 28-3, 16-2 played before a new school-record crowd of 22,163, were led by Tia Gibbs with 16 points and Sara Hammond chipped in with 12.

Reds get bullpen ready for September run by adding LHP Zach Duke

The Cincinnati Reds are getting ready for the September stretch run by adding depth to the relief corps. The Reds have purchased the Triple-A contract of left-hander Zach Duke and sending right-handed rookie Nick Christiani back to Louisville, just ahead of Saturday’s Waiver Trade Deadline. To make room on the 40-man roster for Duke, the Reds designated right-handed pitcher Justin Freeman for assignment.

They have 10 days to trade, demote or release Freeman.

This move gives the Reds a more balanced bullpen. The Reds now have three  left-handers: Duke, Manny Parra and closer Aroldis Chapman.

The move also makes Duke eligible for the playoffs.

Duke, who is 30 years old, struggled with the Washington Nationals in the first few months of the season, posting an 8.71 ERA in 12 games and 20 2/3 innings before his June 10 release. He was a starter for the first six years of his big league career in Pittsburgh, then was used primarily in relief in Arizona in 2011 and with Washington in 2012, when he posted a 1.32 ERA in eight games before faltering this year.

Duke pitched very well with Triple-A Louisville,  going 2-0 with a 1.30 ERA in 26 games spanning 27 2/3 innings. He gave up only five walks while striking out 34.

He has a 50-75 won-loss record with an ERA of 4.64 and has struck out 558 batters.

The Duke Blue Devils, the only team who have beaten Ohio State this year, has replaced Indiana as the Number-1 team in the AP Top 25 poll.

Michigan and Syracuse each moved up one place to second and third respectively. Following them in the top 10 are Arizona, Louisville, Indiana, Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and Illinois.

The Blue Devils have reached #1 at least once in a record 16 seasons under head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and has played more games as the Number-1 ranked team in his 33 seasons (209) than as an unranked team (141).

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.

 

 

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

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.
