University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz and two assistant coaches watched several young prospects at the Raatz Fence/O'Sheas Classic at Mercy Academy on Saturday evening. Cardinal Authority has the latest on the two recruits.

University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz spent the night before his team's game against Memphis out recruiting.

Walz and assistant coaches Stephanie Norman and Sam Purcell were at the Raatz Fence/O'Sheas Classic at Mercy Academy watching a pair of top young prospects on Saturday night.

The U of L coaches were checking out sophomore point guard Crystal Dangerfield and junior guard Meme Jackson, who are teammates at Murfreesboro, Tenn., Blackman High School.

Blackman, ranked No. 5 in the ESPN Girls' top 25, moved to 21-1 on the season after beating No. 1 Incarnate Word of St. Louis.

The 5-foot-5 Dangerfield is ranked as the No. 7 prospect in the Class of 2016 by ESPN.com. She had 13 points and six assists in the game.

Dangerfield, who averaged a team-high 14.5 points to go with 3.4 assists and 3.2 steals as a freshman and has about the same numbers this season, has already made unofficial visits to U of L, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Ole Miss.

The 5-11 Jackson is considered one of the top 50 prospects in the Class of 2015. She had 17 points and five rebounds on 6 of 9 shooting.
