With the regular season winding down, the men’s and women’s swimming and diving team secured two wins against Notre Dame and rival Kentucky. On senior day, the seventh-ranked men defeated No. 22 Notre Dame 171-129 and No. 10 women beat ND 160-140.

Coach Arthur Albiero had mixed emotions on senior day. Louisville celebrated the career of their 19 seniors.

“It was senior day, which is always special, especially with this group and really the four-year impact on a program. It’s hard to overlook that,” Albiero said. “More importantly, it’s bittersweet. These guys are part of our family here and I’m so proud of the men and women they have become and, obviously, as we finish this season here and put some great performances together, they were the leaders today.

“Senior day always brings a little bit of mixed emotions, so I think it took us a little bit to get going. But a win is a win against a good team.”

The women were led by one of the members celebrating their final match in the Ralph Wright Natatorium, Andrea Cottrell. The Ohio native won the 200 medley relay, 100 breast and 200 breast.

On the men’s side, Grigory Tarasevich and Carlos Claverie notched four wins each. Both helped win the 200 medley relay. Tarasevich won the 100 back, 200 back and 200 free relay. Claverie took home the 100 breast, 200 breast and 200 individual medley.

U of L traveled to Lexington the following day. The men defeated UK 176.5-123.5 while the women won 167-133. The win marks the eighth straight year the teams have swept Kentucky.

“We had a tough dual-meet last night against a good conference opponent in Notre Dame, and then to come back-to-back like this and get on the road, it’s a good challenge,” Albiero said. “It’s a good way for us to learn and really take some of the new things and be able to learn from it, and I think this is going to help us going forward to championship competition. This is a team win all the way. It took everybody’s effort.”

Trevor Carroll won three events in the 50, 100 and 200 free. Claverie also won three events in the 100 breast, 200 breast and 200 individual medley. For the women, Cottrell secured another two wins in the 100 and 200 breast.

With two meets left, Albiero enjoys where his team is at.

“The men are really senior heavy, they have been around and they’re experienced. They have lofty goals. We have high standards coming up for the ACC and NCAAs.        We’re aiming to put forward the best season we’ve had here,” Albiero said.

“For the women’s, the legacy last year’s class left was huge, so coming in we had some concerns but this class has stepped up and been great leaders. We have a balance with the women, which means we have a bit of a learning curve but the camaraderie is really great.”

Former U of L running back LJ Scott announced his intent to transfer to Eastern Kentucky University today via Twitter. Scott, who saw limited action in the 2016 season, was a part of the 2014 recruiting class.

Scott only carried the ball three times this season for a total of 15 yards. For his career, Scott carried the ball on 71 attempts for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 18 receptions for 173 yards and one touchdown.

The senior-to-be saw his role reduced to a situational back this past season, used mainly in passing situations.

Scott’s departure leaves the Cards with three running backs on their roster in Jeremy Smith, Malik Williams and Trey Smith. Louisville will bring in one freshman back, Colin Wilson. Dae Williams came to Louisville as a running back, but switched to linebacker in the preseason.

The women’s basketball team earned their fourth victory over a ranked opponent with a 66-52 win over No. 23 South Florida.

Louisville’s superior size and athleticism were the stories of the game. They exploited the smaller Bulls team on the glass, going +21 in rebounds. USF entered the game No. 6 in the nation in rebounding margin, but the Cards finished with a 44-23 advantage.

Quick starts in quarter gave Louisville comfortable leads throughout the game. They led for all but 22 seconds, using a 9-0 run to start the first quarter, 8-0 run to start the second and a 6-0 run to begin the third.

After U of L opened the game scoring nine unanswered, USF responded with seven straight points. Louisville had six first quarter turnovers to keep the game close. The first quarter ended with Louisville leading 17-13.

Myisha Hines-Allen carried U of L’s offense, scoring 14 points and grabbing six rebounds in the first half. Asia Durr extended her streak of consecutive games hitting a three to 25 games.

USF’s leading scorer Kitija Laksa, averaging 19.9 points, had zero in the first half, going 0-for-6 in 17 minutes.

It was all Hines-Allen in the third quarter, scoring nine of the team’s 16 points. Laksa scored her first points of the game with 1:24 remaining in the third quarter.

The Bulls outscored the Cards 15-12 in the fourth quarter, but Louisville extended their possessions with six offensive rebounds to close out the game.

Mariya Moore scored five points and orchestrated the offense with eleven assists. Hines-Allen finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds.

South Florida’s trio of Maria Jespersen, Ariadna Pujol and Laksa average 49.5 points, but only scored 25 points.

Louisville stays on the east coast, traveling to Clemson for their second of a three-game road trip on Jan. 26. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

By Kyeland Jackson —

A possible fluorine leak triggered alarms in U of L’s Shumaker Research Building Sunday. Within minutes, emergency crews responded and determined it was a false alarm.

“We believe that cabinet lost power, which caused the alarm,” Major Kirby Martin said.

Research Associate Indika Wijayasinghe works in the lab where the leak was reported.

“We have a laser that uses fluorine gas, that (fluorine) is not hooked up to the laser,” Wijayasinghe said.

The fluorine is in a pressurized cylinder, held within an air cabinet which normally vacuums exposed gases. Exposure to flourine could burn the skin or lungs if inhaled. On-call building mechanic Elizabeth Williams pulled the alarm after Wijayasinghe reported a possible leak.

“I think it’s a malfunction of the alarm system,” Williams said.

Senior biology major Rachel Thompson was in the building when the alarm rang. She was taken to the ambulance to check for fluorine exposure, but refused tests.

“(I) wasn’t exactly sure what it was,” Thompson said referring to the alarm. She said a similar alarm activated after the building’s electricity cut off.

U of L custodian Supervisor Darnell Taylor said alarms in the building happen at least once a month.

“It happens all the time,” Taylor said.

U of L’s RAVE system said the area was secured.

Hosting UT Martin and Murray State, the women’s tennis team walked away with a pair of victories in their opening day. Louisville first defeated UT Martin 5-2 then finished the night with a 7-0 win over Murray.

Coach Mark Beckham said he liked how his team played in the opener against Martin despite letting up two singles points.

“There’s always nerves and that affected how clean we played. We just didn’t play quite as good as we did in practice but it’s to be expected. UT Martin is very good in a few spots and they pushed us,” Beckham said. “I would have liked to see cleaner results throughout, but as far as getting the win, I’m happy.”

Getting things started, Louisville swept the doubles point by winning on all three courts. Ariana Rodriguez and Jessie Paul won on court three 6-2, giving the early edge to U of L. The Cards won on courts one and two 6-3.

Olivia Boesing and Tiffany Huber won on courts five and six by scores of 6-1, 6-1 and 6-0, 6-2. Mariana Humberg delivered the match-clinching point with a 6-3, 6-1 victory, her first as a Cardinal. Aleksandra Mally recorded her first win of the year with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Burcu Tari.

The Cardinals dropped two points on courts one and two. UTM’s Sarah Candeloro defeated Sena Suswan 6-2, 7-5 and Hitomi Naito defeated Pahz 7-5, 4-6, 10-4.

Beckham wasn’t overly worried about dropping the top courts because of the spread of his talent.

“It’s a blessing and a curse, but there’s not a huge difference between our No. 1 and No. 9 right now. I have the luxury of putting people wherever I want and they’re going to be in a good spot,” Beckham said. “What I’d like to have is someone own a spot, but it’s very early in the year so I’m not sure how that’s going to shake out yet.”

Like the men the day before, the women knocked off the cobwebs with their first match and swept the second.

“We accomplished what we wanted to as a whole and although we had a little lapse in doubles against this good Murray State team. I told them to show me a different team in singles and they accomplished that. This team is old enough and mature enough to control their level,” Beckham said.

Rodriguez and Paul moved to 2-0 in doubles today, along with Pahz and Humberg. Louisville won every singles match, making Boesing, Huber, Humberg and Mally all undefeated. Beckham said he is happy to see Mally on the court after dealing with injuries.

“(Mally) had a stress fracture in her arm her freshman year, then she tore a ligament her sophomore year. So she’s never been able to play tennis here pain-free and finally, she can play again. I’m happy for her,” Beckham said.

The men’s tennis team kicked off their season by winning a doubleheader against Samford and Chicago State. Louisville opened the day with a 5-2 win over the Bulldogs then swept the Cougars 7-0.

Samford jumped up early on the Cardinals by winning the doubles point. Sean Donohue and Parker Wynn won the first court 6-3, but Samford took the victories on courts two and three.

Coach Rex Ecarma said he wasn’t worried about his team after they dropped the doubles point, but said the loss was good for his squad.

“I was calm during the doubles, I know how well they can play there. Two and three just went out and played flat. I knew if we dropped the doubles point, we would go out and flex our muscles in singles,” Ecarma said. “We let them hang around, and that’s always dangerous. They learned a lesson and it’s always good to learn a lesson in a win.”

As Ecarma predicted, his team didn’t hesitate to take over in singles.

Chris Morin-Kougoucheff, Brandon Lancaster and Clement Filho won with little difficulty. Lancaster swept Curran Verma 6-0, 6-0 while Morin-Kougoucheff and Filho downed their opponents 6-1, 6-0. The final three points provided more resistance.

Donohue pulled out two close wins over Jake Faundez, winning 7-5, 6-4. The win sealed the match for the Cardinals. Wynn battled back after dropping his first set, winning 6-7(6-8), 6-2, 6-1. The lone singles loss came with Ciro Lampasas. Ecarma said Lampasas will bounce back.

“(Lampasas) just got tight,” Ecarma said. “First time playing for the University of Louisville in a team match situation and he just got tight. He’s a much better player than that and we see two levels better than that every day.”

In the nightcap, U of L faced Chicago State. Without opening-day jitters, Louisville jumped all over the Cougars.

“Our guys were really prepared with it being our second match of the day. They were loose, they were relaxed and it really showed. They had a dominant performance,” Ecarma said.

Donohue and Wynn clinched the doubles point for Louisville, moving the pair to 2-0.

Chicago State forfeited court six because they didn’t have a player, giving U of L a 2-0 lead. Lancaster made quick work of his opponent, winning 6-1, 6-0.

Along with Lancaster, Morin-Kougoucheff, Donohue and Wynn all moved to 2-0 in singles with their win against CSU. George Headley earned his first victory of the year with a 6-2, 7-6 win.

Ecarma said three of his players stood out to him in the two matches.

“Sean did a good job of clinching against Samford,” Ecarma said. “Kougoucheff handled No. 1 all day and Brandon has been an ace … the guy is rock solid right now.”

Coming on the heels of the team’s rout of Clemson, the men’s basketball team came out sluggish against the Florida State Seminoles.

Within the first three minutes of the game, the Cards found themselves trailing 14-0. The Seminoles came out of the gates hard driving to the basket and having wide open looks from behind the three-point line.

After the under 16 minute media time-out, the Cards would go on a 12-5 run. Louisville cut the lead to down to two with 8:24 left in the first half.

The last 10 minutes of the first half was marred with fouls as both teams combined for 25. The Cards only hit 8-of-15 from the line.

The play of the bench provided Louisville. Mangok Mathiang, nine, and Tony Hicks, eight, led the Cards in scoring at halftime.

Starters Anas Mahmoud and Donovan Mitchell failed to score and each had two fouls going into the break. Louisville  trailed 41-35 at the break.

With 16:29 in the game, Florida State pushed the lead to 11.

Over the next four minutes, U of L pulled within one after back-to-back layups by Mitchell.

Back-and-forth play ensued as Louisville stayed close, but never took the lead.

With two minutes remaining in the game, the Cards cut the FSU lead to one point. The Noles pulled away in the final minutes, as Louisville didn’t score the remainder of the game.

Louisville’s bench outscore the Seminoles’ bench 40-11.

The Cardinals two leading scorers were Hicks, who had a game high 16, and Mathiang, who had his second career double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

U of L shot 37 percent from the field, 25-of-65, and shot 67 percent from the free throw, 16-of-24. The team didn’t have success from the three, going 2-for-13.

Foul trouble and poor shooting plagued Mitchell. U of L’s leading scorer scored six points on 2-of-10 shooting.

The Cards move to 16-4 and 4-3 in ACC play. The team is back in action on Jan. 24, when they take on Pittsburgh at 7 p.m.
