Louisville shot under 40% from the field, 3-22 from beyond the arc, and just 63% from the free-throw line. Montrezl Harrell spent most of the game on the bench in foul trouble, David “Baby Face Assassin” Levitch logged 15 minutes, Marshall out-rebounded the Cards 50-47, and the Cards still won by 18, 85 to 67. In early November, it might be ugly, but it’s a win nonetheless. Despite the poor shooting, the Louisville effort defenselively was great. The Cards pressured Marshall essentially the entire game forcing the Thundering...Continue reading »

Opponent Breakdown After finishing the 2013-14 season 11-22, Marshall fired Tom Herrion as its head coach and replaced him with Dan D’Antoni, brother of former Suns, Knicks, and Lakers head...Continue reading »

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino recently sat down with CBS Sports college basketball analyst Seth Davis in which he opens up about potential NBA job offers, the extortion case with Karen Sypher, his 2014 squad and how much longer he plans to coach.
