ATLANTA (AP) -- Louisville's Angel
Louisville is making the most of its Atlanta connection with its former women's basketball star, Angel McCoughtry.
Representatives of Louisville, the alma mater McCoughtry of the WNBA Atlanta Dream, conceived a community service project for the Final Four.
Louisville volunteers will wear T-shirts with McCoughtry's name and number as they join with volunteers from Michigan, Syracuse, Wichita State and the Dream for a project to help the homeless and feed the hungry.
The volunteers will sort and package clothing and supplies that will later be distributed by Lift Up Atlanta, a local organization, to homeless families in Atlanta. Busses will shuttle the volunteers to the job site at Medlock Commons Self Storage in Norcross, near Atlanta.
McCoughtry was the 2012 WNBA scoring champion.
