  Rick Pitino’s Louisville’s teams have always been renowned for their stingy, smothering defenses, but as this year’s squad has struggled mightily from the offensive end of the floor, the Hall-of-Fame coach said Tuesday afternoon he is on the lookout for knockdown shooters on the recruiting trail. This should come as a shock to no one who has seen Louisville play this season. As a team, the Cards are shooting just 30.9% from three-point range (299th in the country) and a less-than-impressive 43.1% overall (195th in...Continue reading »

Heading into Wednesday night, there are 10 games remaining in the ACC regular season.  There are 1,024 different combinations of ways those 10 games could turn out.  Fortunately, only 8 of the 10 games will impact Louisville’s seeding in the ACC Tournament.  The Wake Forest-Boston College game is completely meaningless for anyone’s seed, including those two teams.  They are already locked into the 11 and 12 seeds, respectively.  The Duke-Wake Forest game cannot impact anyone’s seed other than Duke and Notre Dame. With...Continue reading »

  Prior to Louisville’s grudge match vs. North Carolina in late January, Rick Pitino took it upon himself to let it be known that sophomore guard Terry Rozier would absolutely, positively not be returning for his junior season. Now, just over a month later, he is not so sure. During his Monday night radio show, Pitino announced that junior power forward Montrezl Harrell, as expected, would participate in senior day along with Wayne Blackshear, but Louisville’s other projected NBA pick, Terry Rozier, would not. “If he’s going...Continue reading »

He’s been steady throughout his UofL career, but he’s also been a lightening rod for criticism due to disappearing in games.  He’s been an outstanding student and model citizen while at Louisville, but often his sub-par play has overshadowed his stellar grades in the classroom.  And while we have posed this question several times, perhaps now we can ask it again, “Is Blackshear ready to become ‘Big Game Wayne’?” Over the last three games, he’s averaging 12.7 ppg and 5 boards while shooting...Continue reading »

  Coach Pitino has made it known that he will recruit a 5th year transfer (or two) to help bolster the Cards’ backcourt next year.  The staff has been keeping tabs on 4-star JUCO standouts Mychal Mulder and Teyvon Myers and Myers is scheduled to make an official visit soon. However, a proven D-1 scorer may be available after this season.  6’4 Tyler Harvey plays – and leads the nation in scoring at 22.8 ppg – for Eastern Washington.  This elite scoring guard shoots 47% from the field, 43% from 3, and 85% from...Continue reading »

In the 1974-75 season, both UofL and UK made it to the Final Four.  This year marks 40 years since both schools achieved that feat.  With that, it makes for a good starting point to compare these two programs as some would argue it that season was the first of a more modern era.  Yes, the school up the road is the top program in college hoops, but they also won half of their championships during a time when peach baskets were still being used.  (Okay, maybe not to that extent, but in the 40’s and 50’s, the NIT was considered...Continue reading »

  While we certainly aren’t clamoring to see Joe Lunardi invade our television screen any longer, Selection Sunday is just two weeks away.  With that comes updated tournament projections and debate about who goes where.  Louisville – with all the drama surrounding the program – earned two wins on the road to improve to 23-6 and 11-5 in league play.  The Cards are a full game ahead of UNC (20-9, 10-6) for the ACC Tournament’s double-bye.  Louisville awaits Wednesday’s clash with No. 9 Notre Dame (24-5,...Continue reading »

  Saturday afternoon at Florida State, Louisville looked less like a team who had just lost one of their best players and more like a team who just rid themselves of a gigantic burden. Rick Pitino’s squad answered the question, “How will this team look without Chris Jones?” convincingly Saturday afternoon as they played arguably the best all-around team performance of the season and pummeled the Seminoles 81-59. For the first time all season, the halfcourt offense operated with near flawlessness. The ball movement that...Continue reading »
