The Louisville women's basketball team's schedule continues to change. 

A few days after Duke, Louisville's next opponent, announced its plans to cancel its season due to COVID-19, the Cardinals have added a game to its slate. 

Louisville (5-0) is scheduled to play North Carolina on Friday, at noon, at the KFC Yum Center. This acts as a rescheduled game after the previous matchup between the teams on Dec. 13 was postponed because of a positive COVID test within the Cardinals' program.

Friday will be the team's first game back since it paused all team activities on Dec. 11, which came two days after a 73-49 win at Duke. The team practiced on Sunday, a team spokesperson confirmed to the Courier Journal, which signals the end of a two-week pause for the Cardinals.

Coach Jeff Walz said on Twitter "#CardNation who is ready to start off 2021 with @UofLWBB ?!#GoCards" 

Because of its pause, Louisville saw three games postponed. The North Carolina game is the first one to be made up and will force the Cardinals to play two games in three days as it travels to Virginia on Sunday.
