Jeff Walz coaching against Florida State on March 7, 2020.

It’s been a rough start to the season in both NCAA men’s and women’s basketball thanks to COVID-19 postponements and cancellations. On the women’s basketball side, the Louisville Cardinals have been particularly hard-hit, with four of their five originally planned non-conference games affected (the latest being their planned game against the Cincinnati Bearcats Saturday, which went down Thursday). And that led to an unusual response from head coach Jeff Walz (seen above during a March 7 game against the Florida State Seminoles), who took to Twitter to try and line up a replacement opponent:

We’ll see if that tweet bears fruit for Walz and the Cardinals. But it’s certainly interesting to see a Division I head coach taking to Twitter to try and line up an opponent, and it’s certainly a sign of the times.
