Jeff Walz Thanks Cardinal Fans In Open Letter

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville couldn't get over the hump against Connecticut Monday night, but it was no fault of the 23,000 rowdy fans that packed the KFC Yum Center.

U of L coach Jeff Walz asked the fans to show up, and they did, which is why Walz took to GoCards.com to post the following open letter of gratitude.

Card Nation -

Despite the disappointing outcome of our match up with No. 1 UConn Monday night, I could not be more pleased with the outpouring of support given to our program by the fans.

The pageantry of our Inaugural Native American night, the bittersweet emotions that come with celebrating our four amazing seniors on Senior Night and the electrifying atmosphere created by the largest crowd to ever see a women's basketball game at the University of Louisville made for an unforgettable night.

On behalf of the team, our staff, the athletic department and the University of Louisville, I just want to take a moment give a heartfelt thank you for joining us in the World's Most Spectacular Arena - the KFC Yum! Center for a very special event. I hope we can count on you for your continued support of Louisville Women's Basketball in the coming years, beginning with the NCAA Regional we are hosting March 30 and April 1, 2014.

I also would like to personally thank our most loyal season ticket holders who have either witnessed every game in person or missed only one or two games.

Again, thank you for your unrivaled support, and Go Cards!
