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.

Teddy Bridgewater threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers with 1 minute, 35 seconds left, and No. 16 Louisville remained perfect by edging South Florida, 27-25, in Louisville, Ky., Saturday for the Cardinals' best start since 2006. Louisville (7-0, 2-0 Big East) rallied after yielding 15 straight points to South Florida and a season-high 197 yards rushing. B.J.

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)

IN DEATH, Louisville pulled out all the stops for its favorite son, Muhammad Ali. But it took two out-of-towners to rescue and restore the champion's boyhood home - a one-story, pink frame house that had become a broken-down, rat-infested shambles. Then, Louisville didn't care, or so it seemed. But Las Vegas real estate investor Jared Weiss cared, and so did Philadelphia lawyer George Bochetto. When Bochetto - a onetime Pennsylvania state boxing commissioner - heard the home was on the market in 2012, he jumped.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest pitcher threw Corey Ray an inside fastball, and the Louisville outfielder popped it to shortstop. Ray, one of the top collegiate players in the country, trotted back to the dugout. He opened a black notebook. Ray, 21, viewed his junior year as a time to refine the skills that made him a consensus top-10 pick in this week's Major League Baseball draft before the season even started. He wrote "F6" in his journal. Underneath the failed result, he logged the lesson with three words.

No movement disturbed the graying crosses of Villanova University's Augustinian cemetery. Pale pink magnolia petals drifted slowly to the green campus lawn. No students clogged the walkways to the library or the dorms. The pews of St. Thomas of Villanova Church held no prayerful souls in the early afternoon. The school is closed for Easter break and most students were at home Sunday, not to return until classes resume on Tuesday. But across Ithan Avenue and down a drive to the front of the university's Davis Center for Athletics and Fitness, one actually could find . . . People!

WHAT WENT down Friday in Louisville is at the heart of what is wrong with college sports. And it is not that a former Louisville basketball staffer apparently arranged for strippers to appear at parties in a dorm and some money changed hands. We are talking high school- and college-age men hanging with women late at night. Is this really an outrage? Here is the outrage: Louisville announced an immediate postseason ban. Why not just wait to get all the facts and see how this plays out?

SOME EARLY 21st Century unintended consequences include Donald Trump, Sam Hinkie and Drexel at 3-18. They resulted from five Republican popular vote losses in the last six presidential elections, the trade for Andrew Bynum and the graduate transfer rule. We will leave politics and the Sixers for another day. Today, we will focus on the graduate transfer rule which was designed to help college graduates with remaining athletic eligibility be able to take graduate courses at another institution without having to sit out a season as regular transfers do. Originally, players were only able to take advantage of the rule if the new school offered a graduate degree the old school did not. That requirement quickly got ignored; it became free agency and, this being college sports, the strong began to prey on the weak.

Georgia Davis Powers, 92, a giant in the fight for civil rights in Kentucky and the first African American woman elected to the state Senate, died Saturday at her brother's home in Louisville. "When you think of civil rights in Kentucky, you have to start with Georgia Davis Powers," said Kentucky State Sen. Gerald Neal, who says Powers inspired him into public service. She fought for fair housing and employment rights, became a close confidante of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and served 21 years in the state Senate.

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.
