Hammond looks back at Louisville's remarkable run in tournament


LOUISVILLE Ky. (WYMT) - Tuesday night, the Louisville women were looking to complete their magical run in the NCAA tournament with an upset win over UConn in the title game.

But the Huskies would dominate the Cards and pick up the 93-60 win and their 8th national title. Former Rockcastle County forward Sara Hammond led the team with 15 points and 5 boards and afterwards talked about their remarkable run.

"No one believed in us this whole time. Everyone expected Baylor to be back here in the National Championship, and we did the impossible", said Hammond.

"I don't think, none of us are hanging our heads, and they aren't hanging their heads either. Because, they went out, they were the last ones to practice, the last day you could practice", Hammond stated.

"That's a great way to go out knowing that you are the last, one of two teams to end the season still playing. So I think they are proud of all of us. It's a great way to go out. Obviously, we didn't go out on top, but it was a miracle run in this tournament", said Hammond.

" I think they are going to remember that the rest of their lives and when we look back. Coach always tells us, 20-30 years from now we are going to be texting and emailing each other. You know, talking about this and what we did."
