Louisville's Hailey Van Lith says Cardinals have 'Final Four aspirations'
Louisville wrapped up an impressive regular season on Sunday afternoon with a blowout win over Notre Dame.
The Cardinals finished second in the ACC with a 16-2 conference record. They went 25-3 overall and 14-0 on their home floor.
On Monday morning, star guard Hailey Van Lith went on Packer and Durham to discuss her team’s postseason goals.
“We have Final Four aspirations,” Van Lith said on Packer and Durham this week. “And we think we’re a team that can have a deep run.”
Van Lith also empahsized the importance of winning the ACC Tournament. She noted that’s one of the Cardinals’ primary goals, given that most of the team doesn’t have a conference title in their career. Louisville’s last ACC Tournament title came in 2018.
