As November commences I can’t help but wonder, what’s going on for the sports obsessed in the Derby City? Well, I decided to look into it and find out, and that leads us to the November sports calendar.
11/5- Louisville vs. Pikeville: Cardinal Women’s Basketball- KFC Yum! Center
The NCAA championship runner up Lady Cardinals, will tip-off against Pikeville in an exhibition contest, which should prove interesting in regards to viewing how the Lady Cards are coming off a surprisingly great season.
11/6- Louisville vs. Pikeville: Cardinal Men’s Basketball- KFC Yum! Center
Following the Lady Cards meeting Pikeville, the men’s teams will meet up in an exhibition game of their own the following day. So far the men’s exhibition games have been interesting because they have a lot of talent however they lost the likes of Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva to the NBA after their championship win in the NCAA tournament last season.
11/8- Louisville vs. Houston- Cardinal Volleyball- KFC Yum! Center
Louisville’s volleyball team has steadily been solid, and they will continue their strong season against conference rival, Houston.
11/9- Louisville vs. College of Charleston- Cardinal Men’s Basketball- KFC Yum! Center
Louisville continues their pre-season against the college of Charleston at the Yum! Center.
11/9- Louisville vs. Loyola Chicago- Cardinal Women’s Basketball- KFC Yum! Center
The Yum Center will be hopping with both the men’s and women’s teams continuing their preseason schedules, as the ladies will square off with Loyola Chicago.
11/9-11/10- Mudfund Derby City Cup- Eva Bandman Park
This race, set to commence on River Road will bring in bicyclists from all over the country, and should be an exciting event for both participants and spectators.
11/10- Louisville Sports Commission Half Marathon
The fall runathon is set to conclude November 10th, with the LSC’s Half Marathon. This famed annual event is set to be one of the biggest events of the season, as it is every year for all sorts of runners/walkers.
Check back for part two of the monthly sports calendar.
