Hammond makes the call

Rockcastle County's Sara Hammond is one of the top prospects in the state. Now we know where the 6-foot-2 forward will play in college.

On Tuesday Hammond announced she was taking her game to the University of Louisville. She chose the Cardinal over UConn.

"Passing up UConn was really hard for me," Hammond told The Courier-Journal. "But I had to pick a place where I knew I was going to be happy. I always dreamed of going to UConn and winning national championships. But I had to go where I felt wanted and that was Louisville. I have built a great relationship with coach Walz."

Hammond, who is ranked as the No. 12 player in the nation according to's HoopGurlz, averaged 15.3 points and 10.3 rebounds per game last season, as she led her team to a 12th Region championship. She is the favorite to take home this year's Miss Basketball award.
