If you don’t know Shoni Schimmel, you don’t know women’s basketball. Rusty talked with U of L’s amazing basketball star before practice this week. Shoni grew up on a reservation, and exhibits a flashy style of play known as “RezBall”. She’s a hero to Native Americans across the country, many of whom are traveling to Louisville for Monday night’s big game against Connecticut.
Dawn Yankeelov is a technology entrepreneur who just got back to town after meeting with John Yarmuth and Mitch McConnell about some key issues, including immigration. Listen as I ask if those two agree on anything.
My top five of the week includes another look at a casino gaming story in the news. a report that ranks Kentucky 49th in the U.S. (thanks, West Virginia) in health, and some thoughts on Bill Clinton’s visit. It’s also the start of the Humana Festival of New American Plays. Of course, the Lady Cards are a story worth watching as they attempt to sell out the Yum! Center Monday night.
