In late...Continue reading »

photo – Just three short years ago, many UofL fans were losing their patience with Coach Pitino (myself included).  There was the disappointing Elite Eight loss to Michigan State, the extortion trial, an ugly 20-13 season the following year, and a second consecutive first round loss to in-state foe Morehead State.  Then it all changed in March of 2012 in...Continue reading »

  Louisville head coach Rick Pitino appeared on WHAS radio last night with Terry Meiners and gave a full update on the 2013-2014 roster.

photo – As OKC’s summer league concludes, Kyle Kuric can leave with his head held high after having a solid showing in the five-day hoops summit.  In each game, he gave Thunder fans a glimpse of what he did for the better part of four years at Louisville; drain threes.  On numerous occasions he showed his ability to rise and shoot quickly...Continue reading »

photo – While football looks to be less than stellar in the American, hoops looks to very formidable with the likes of Cincinnati, UConn, Memphis and Temple.  The Cards will play everyone twice, with each one of the aforementioned teams making for great games.  Plus, another round of home-and-homes with old rivals Cincinnati and Memphis will be fun.  This...Continue reading »
