The University of Louisville women's basketball team has enjoyed a ton of success on the floor and in recruiting in recent years.

U of L head coach Jeff Walz and his staff are trying to continue that trend as the program moves into the ACC next season.

And if the U of L Elite Camp is any indication, the Cardinals are still on a roll.

Walz hosted around 100 prospects for the U of L Elite Camp on Wednesday at Cardinal Arena, including some of the Cardinals' top targets and some of the elite young talent in the area.

Here are a few of the top prospects at the Elite Camp in Cardinal Arena:

  • One of the U of L 2015 commitments - Taja Cole - attended the camp and was a standout. She committed to the Cardinals a few months ago and is the No. 18 player in the '15 class, according to ESPN.com. She is from Richmond, Va.

  • Charlotte, N.C., Myers Park guard Aliyah Mazyck is ranked as the No. 37 prospect in the Class of 2015 by FullCourt.com and attended the camp.
