Louisville Softball Captures Big East Title In Dramatic Fashion

Jordan Trimble's walk-off home run in the bottom of the 8th gave Louisville its first Big East Tournament title since 2007, as the Cards topped Notre Dame 4-3.

Louisville, which had been beaten in the championship game by a single run in each of the past two seasons, will now wait until 10 p.m. tonight when their NCAA Tournament draw will be revealed. The No. 8/9 ranked Cards will enter the big dance with a remarkable record of 53-3.

Trimble's heroics made SportsCenter as the No. 9 "top play" for Saturday. You can see video of the walk-off right here.
