Rhodes/AP) *In a game that was billed by SMU as the “biggest game in the history of the program,” the Cards battled back from a 14-point deficit to win comfortably in front of 7,3o5 fans, the largest crowd in school history.  At the game, it was a who’s who of famous Texans as the game was attended by President George W. Bush...Continue reading »

Photo – To say that SMU is unbeatable at home this season wouldn’t be an exaggeration at all.  Heading into their home finale against Louisville, the Mustangs have yet to lose in their building, Moody Coliseum, where they have won all 9 games.  They played 6 games – winning all of those too – in the Curtis Culwell Center while Moody...Continue reading »

(Photo – At times this season, UofL’s frontcourt has been exposed by bigger, more athletic opposition. It’s been the one thing this team has not been able to overcome due to a relatively thin frontcourt. However, as the Cards get set to enter into ACC play next year, it doesn’t appear that height will be a problem much longer. Today Coach...Continue reading »

Photo – March Madness is in full effect and the last week of the regular season in the AAC figures to come down to the wire.  Louisville and Cincinnati are tied for the league lead while SMU, Memphis, and UConn are lurking behind, ready to take advantage if a team ahead of them loses.  It would have to take UC and UofL losing both games to get the Huskies...Continue reading »

(Photo – AP) It’s a stat that has been thrown around a lot this year, UofL’s porous record against ranked teams.  It currently stands at (1-5); easily one of the worst records Louisville has had against teams in the Top 25.  Another talking point brought up seemingly every day is the play of Wayne Blackshear in those specific games versus ranked teams. ...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jim Brown / USA Today) Well, we predicted that the Cards would lose this one in our preview, but I can’t remember the last time it felt so wrong to be right. Louisville found a way, yet again, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and they continue to find new and intriguing ways to lose big games. With UConn’s win over Cincinnati yesterday,...Continue reading »

(Photo – Nelson Chenault/USA TODAY) *This one stings, no other way to say it.  It wasn’t the 5 OT choke job in South Bend last year, but it was close. *After being up by 8 points with 4:46 left, UofL collectively decided to ignore Montrezl and got outscored 15-1 to end the game.  Russ and Chris forced – and missed – several shots down the stretch...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today) Fresh off miraculous run in which he was named the KenPom player of the year and was a First Team All-American, Russ Smith has struggled to gain that same respect a year later. He’s often been overlooked in various Player of the Year conversations and I’ve never seen his name appear on a first or second team All-American list. All...Continue reading »
