2013 Fall Exposure League Week 3 Preview
Last week, THE LEAGUE went from a basketball event to a community of mentorship and support. I can't wait to see what happens this week! All games are played at Ridgeway Baptist Church Christian Life Center at 2500 Ridgeway Rd. Memphis, TN 38119.
Game 1: 9:45am UConn vs Tennessee
This will be a match up of the shooting guards.
UConn and Tennessee is one of the fiercest rivalries in women's college basketball. The schools started playing each other in 1995. In my opinion, this series really elevated womens basketball to another level. On June 8, 2007, it was announced the schools would discontinue the regular-season series. So why not bring the series back in the Fall Exposure League?
This game will feature two of the top shooting guards in this area. Uconn's junior Taylor Robertson (Rossville) and Tennessee's junior Brenda Fields (Raleigh-Egypt). Taylor averaged around 15.71 points heading into post play last season and Brenda averaged 16.32.
Which player will have a break out game during Week 3?
Game 2: 10:45am Memphis vs Notre Dame
This will be a match up of the team to beat.
It was just too good to be true! Can you imagine being able to go to a Memphis Lady Tigers' game against Notre Dame. It almost happened until the Big East fell apart. Notre Dame is now in the ACC conference and Memphis is in the AAC. However, in the Fall Exposure League anything is possible.
Memphis is the lone undefeated team. Last week, they had a remarkable comeback victory with 2 minutes left against UConn. They have a nice combination of talent on the team and do not believe in giving up.
Can Notre Dame take Memphis down?
Game 3: 11:45am Louisville vs California
This will be a match up of the Final Four.
Both college teams had a cinderella 2012-13 season making it to the Final Four. Louisville continued their fairy tale season into the championship game.
The way California started the league. Then turned it around on last week. I say they are having a cinderella league. Will Louisville spoil the momentum like the college team did during last season's NCAA tournament?
Who will step up and lead their teams to victory?
