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. She was the sweeper on the Patriots' PIAA Class AAA championship team last season before being shifted to center back this season under new coach Jill Henry. "What makes her valuable is her versatility," Harding said.

Louisville, Ky., is less than an hour's drive (about 40 miles) to the north of Bardstown. This thriving city, with a metropolitan population of nearly a million, has been a bustling river port since the days of steamboats. It is located at the only group of waterfalls on the Ohio River (where the wide water drops 26 feet in two miles). If you are a fan of multimedia presentations, one good way to get oriented is to start at "KentuckyShow!" This 52-minute program, which uses 40 projectors and a five-channel sound track, is shown seven days a week, on the hour from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Kentucky Theater at 651 S.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Temple tight end Cody Booth slung his right arm in displeasure as the Owls lost a first-quarter fumble at their 21-yard line. Then he and his teammates dejectedly jogged off the field. It was just the beginning of another mistake-prone afternoon for the Owls, who were routed by No. 12 Louisville, 45-17, in a Big East game Saturday at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. The Owls (3-5, 2-3 Big East) lost three fumbles - all by quarterback Chris Coyer - had a costly high snap by freshman center Kyle Friend, and surrendered 508 total yards.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Peyton Siva scored 16 points, and Louisville beat Villanova 84-74 on Wednesday night to return to .500 in the Big East after a rough start to conference play. Siva was brilliant late when the Cardinals (16-5, 4-4) needed him most. He made a turnaround jumper from 15 feet to give the Cardinals a 73-67 lead with 2:56 left, then made two sharp passes on the next two possession that led to points, including Jared Swopshire's three-pointer in the corner that made it 78-70 with 1:09 left.

NEW ORLEANS - Terell Floyd returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown on the first play, dual-threat quarterback Teddy Bridgewater directed several scoring drives and No. 22 Louisville surprised No. 4 Florida, 33-23, Wednesday night in the Sugar Bowl. Shaking off an early hit that flattened him and knocked off his helmet, Bridgewater returned to throw TD passes to DeVante Parker and Damian Copeland. The two-touchdown underdogs from the Big East took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and were never caught.

Boston College outhustled and outshot No. 18 Louisville, upsetting a team struggling to adjust to personnel changes. 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.

Rick Pitino was right. Louisiana-Lafayette was every bit as troublesome as Louisville's coach suspected before his Cardinals found a way to avoid another early exit from the NCAA Tournament. Francisco Garcia went 7-for-7 from the foul line in the last 2 minutes, and finished with 27 points to help fourth-seeded Louisville (30-4) advance to the second round of the Albuquerque Regional with a 68-62 victory last night. Louisville will play Georgia Tech in a second-round game tomorrow.

Curtis Withers scored 23 points, including two clutch free throws, to lift Charlotte to a 77-71 win over No. 9 Louisville last night in Charlotte, N.C. Louisville (17-4, 7-3 Conference USA) lost for the third time in four games and blew a 12-point lead, partly because Luke Whitehead, Francisco Garcia and Nate Daniels played most of the second half with four fouls each. 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)

You can believe Drexel hoop player Tavon Allen when he says he's happy for former teammate Damion Lee, who has been impressive for Louisville this season after leaving the Dragons. Saying he's happy for him, Allen isn't just saying the right thing, since the right thing for Allen would have been for Lee to stay next to him, nailing those jump shots on Market Street instead of all around the Atlantic Coast Conference. But Lee wasn't just a teammate, he's a friend. "We talk all the time," Allen said this week.

Hello there A week after Stephanie arrived in Prague for a study-abroad program, her Italian roommate Valeria suggested they host a dinner party. Using two hot plates, Valeria and another Italian student created a feast that brought a dozen students to their dorm room. One of them was Nicholas. "It was friendship at first sight," said Stephanie, who grew up in Lindenwold and was studying professional sales at William Patterson University. She and Nicholas, a Louisville, Ky., native and economics and international-studies major at Bradley University, talked much of the night about food and travel.

A CITY COUNCIL committee yesterday approved zoning legislation for a $450 million casino and hotel project in South Philadelphia, despite hours of testimony from Philadelphians and out-of-towners who alleged the developer practices racially discriminatory tactics reminiscent of the segregated south. During a five-hour hearing, officials from the Cordish Cos., of Baltimore, said that the charges were "trumped up" and that the company had never lost a discrimination lawsuit in its 105-year history.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - It was two years ago, the night before Thanksgiving at Madison Square Garden, the preseason NIT semifinals, Drexel leading unbeaten Arizona, 27-8, early and still leading by three points midway through the second half. With seniors Chris Fouch and Frantz Massenat along with junior Damion Lee, coach Bruiser Flint had a team that promised to be one of the best in school history. Then, Lee, while making a move across the lane, tore his right ACL. By the time he was able to play again, Fouch and Massenat were gone.

But no one - not even Russell - expected what he's experiencing after just one season of college basketball. The 6-foot-5 combo guard out of Ohio State sat in the interview room at the NBA combine Friday afternoon, surrounded by a throng of media members and cameras, answering questions about being one of the top four prospects in the June 25 NBA draft.

GIVEN THAT all the superpowers know they will be in the tournament before the season ever begins, regular-season games are rarely must-watch anymore. Kentucky at Louisville on Saturday is must-watch. The teams will arrive at the KFC Yum! Center, hard by the Ohio River in the 'Ville's downtown, with combined records of 23-0 and rankings of No. 1 (Kentucky) and No. 4 (Louisville). Rick Pitino's Cardinals team lost most of the key players from the 2013 national champs and last season's Sweet 16 team, which was knocked out by Kentucky.

I recently spent a week in Louisville, Ky., with my sweetheart, who was there for a conference. His days were heavily scheduled and he had only one evening free, so the only time we saw each other most days was for lunch and dinner. Thanks to the Urban Bourbon Tour, we found a terrific way for both of us to enjoy our time together. We stopped at the Visitor's Center, where we got our passports for the tour and had our picture taken with the wax figure of Colonel Sanders. The passport book contains information about Louisville's bourbon-related history, and how to properly sample bourbon.

WE WERE reminded once again yesterday, in what Bill Davis said and in what he didn't say, that the Eagles are kind of easing into this whole Marcus Smith thing. Fans might be underwhelmed by the news that Smith yesterday worked with the second defensive unit, after running with the third-stringers much of the spring. Progress, yes, but Smith was the team's first-round draft choice, 26th overall, just a few months back. The organization made it clear when he was drafted that Smith wasn't expected to step into a starting role as a rookie, the way Lane Johnson (2013)
