Hailey Van Lith and company look to bounce back from yesterday’s loss to the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS– Louisville lost its first matchup this season yesterday against the Zags in their opening game in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament. The Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament is an annual event that happens during the week of Thanksgiving every year. Eight teams are selected to participate in this tournament and the field includes:
- South Dakota State
With Louisville losing in overtime against Gonzaga, they are set to face off against the Texas Longhorns, who lost their matchup against Marquette, falling 68-61. Texas is now 1-2 on the season with two straight losses.
Louisville comes in with the better overall record and with a win over Texas, they could be one step closer to finishing 5th in the tournament. 5th place is the best outcome for any team that loses their opening matchup.

Coach Jeff Walz looks to get his team back in the winning column by extending the Longhorns’ losing streak to three in a row. Hailey Van Lith is coming off a 45-minute performance against the Zags and her legs are bound to be a little sore. But if anyone is capable of leading this team to a victory, it’s her.
