Shawnee's Shannon Dennehey, The Inquirer's South Jersey girls' soccer player of the year, has made an oral commitment to attend the University of Louisville. Dennehey said she chose Louisville over Winthrop and Western Carolina after making visits to all three schools. "Louisville is in the Big East, and I wanted to play the best competition and I really liked the school," Dennehey said Saturday. "Plus, if I got hurt and couldn't play again, I would be happiest at Louisville. " Dennehey was a two-time Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey selection.

Senior Casey Meizinger, a standout center back for the Central Bucks East field hockey team, has given an oral commitment to play for Louisville. Meizinger also considered Wake Forest and Michigan State. Former East coach Jeff Harding said Meizinger can play a number of defensive positions.

"What makes her valuable is her versatility," Harding said.

The Eagles, a preseason pick to finish near the bottom of the 13-team Big East, never trailed last night and won, 81-67, at Newton, Mass., with a strong inside game led by Danya Abrams's 30 points. "One of the things we talked to our kids about was a genuine lack of respect our kids have gotten, and rightly so because we struggled last year," Eagles coach Jim O'Brien said.

Garcia hit a three-pointer to put Louisville up by 71-70 in the final minute, but Mitchell Baldwin went coast-to-coast for a layup and drew a foul to put the 49ers (15-5, 7-2)
