LOUISVILLE, Ky. - In 2005-06, when the Maryland women's basketball team won the national championship, coach Brenda Frese's top assistant was Jeff Walz, who proved an invaluable resource on the bench, in the locker room and on the recruiting trail. The two routinely discussed strategy, and in those sessions, Frese foresaw a bright future for her coaching disciple wherever his career led him. Two seasons after helping the Terps to their first and only NCAA title, Walz moved on to become head coach at Louisville and in that time has catapulted the Cardinals onto the national stage with two appearances in the championship game.

John L. Walz, a former typesetter who later ran a Carroll County farm that produced eggs, died of cancer Sunday at his son's Mount Airy home. He was 82. John Louis Walz was born and raised in Baltimore and was a 1948 graduate of City College. A pitcher, he played for the Blue Rocks of Wilmington, Del., in the late 1940s and later with the Phillies of Terre Haute, Ind., until an arm injury ended his career, said his wife of 61 years, the former Dorothy "Dot" Ragulski. After serving in the Army for several years during the Korean War, he worked during the 1950s and 1960s as a typesetter for the Baltimore Typesetting and Composition Co. He later was a co-founder with his father of the Walz Egg Ranch in Mount Airy, where they raised chickens and furnished eggs to commercial and residential customers.

For at least a few minutes Sunday afternoon, Louisville coach Jeff Walz sat back leisurely on a dais inside Comcast Center and offered the kind of made-for-TV pleasantries and by-the-book coach-speak that suggested maybe, just maybe, there really was nothing too special about Monday's second-round NCAA tournament matchup with No. 2 Maryland. So much for that. With two answers to questions spaced 10 minutes apart, the tantalizing mentor-versus-mentee narrative that had colored their first meeting three years ago — a 77-60 Cardinals win in the Elite Eight — was at the fore once more.

ST. LOUIS -It is clear Louisville believes in itself, its coach and the righteousness of its quest for the impossible dream - a national title. The Cardinals call themselves "The Bad News Bears" and revel in their self-image as the ragamuffins of women's basketball. They've even suggested they are happy to have another shot to prove it to No. 1 Connecticut, which crushed them twice this season, on the grandest stage of all Tuesday. UConn coach Geno Auriemma has made mental notes. "We're playing a team that has a lot going for it right now, a team that, from what I've heard, really wants to play us," Auriemma said.

College Park -- At first blush, conditions around the Maryland women's basketball team look about the way they did at this time last year, with a considerable amount of returning talent and national championship aspirations. But a closer look around the Terps - who open exhibition play tomorrow night against the U.S. senior national team, the bulk of which will form the country's Olympic roster next year - reveals that things couldn't be more different, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, according to coach Brenda Frese.
