Photo – Peyton Siva isn’t expected to get a lot of playing time for the Detroit Pistons this year, but at least right now, he will be getting a closer look.  The Pistons have had two of their point guards – Brandon Jennings and Rodney Stuckey –  go down with minor injuries allowing Siva to get a little more clock.  Last night in a 96-81 loss to the Bulls, he played 25 minutes and dished out 9 assists, turned the ball over just once, and scored four points.  In two preseason games, he’s averaging...Continue reading »

Photo – Luke Hancock was the next stop on LSL’s player tour and he filled us in on his injury and what it is like to be a champion. LSL: Forgive me if this is the one hundredth time you’ve been asked this, but how’s the injury? LH: It’s good.  It feels 100%. I feel ready to go.  Coach knows I’ve had a long summer and he knows how long the season is so he’s going to give me a little break here at the start.  I’m shooting a lot, I’m working out a lot, shooting, conditioning,...Continue reading »

  In what could be a radical change to college basketball this season, The NCAA PROP (Playing Rules Oversight Panel) has instituted a set of new rules designed to enhance offensive production and limit physical styles of defense. Specifically, hand-checking of any kind will no longer be allowed and defenders have to be set well before an offensive player makes a move to the basket (no more late slides under a player who has left his feet, etc.). The NBA instituted a similar rules overhaul three years ago after scoring league-wide dipped...Continue reading »

At 6-0, UofL is comfortably in the top 10 and continues look to be BCS Bowl bound.  The Cards will figure to get stiff test from UCF, but because of the schedule, will likely miss out on the BCS National Title game if undefeated.  However, Miami or New Orleans in January wouldn’t be too shabby.  In the final year of the BCS, the bowls will select the AAC champ and other at-large teams in this order; 1. Orange; 2. Sugar; 3. Fiesta. *ESPN Orange vs. Florida State *CBS Sports Sugar vs. South Carolina With Alabama in the BCS Championship...Continue reading »

(Photo – Getty Images)   This morning in Memphis, Tennessee the 10 member schools of the American Athletic Conference gathered for their first ever men’s college basketball media day. And as expected, the Louisville Cardinals were the unanimous choice as the preseason favorite to win the league. Since coaches are not able to vote for their own team, the Cards received all 9 possible votes (Pitino voted for UConn). With three starters returning from last year’s NCAA Championship team, Louisville has been tabbed as the...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Despite his supposed “off-night” last Thursday against Rutgers where he completed 21 of 31 passes for 31o yards, 2 touchdowns and just one pick, Teddy Bridgewater is back in the good graces of NFL big-shots. In this piece from Bucky Brooks of (with video analysis from Charles Jones), he interviews a couple of scouts who rave about Bridgewater’s character and his ability to make all the throws. Admittedly, Teddy’s numbers could certainly be a bit flashier at this point in the...Continue reading »

Photo – AP released their annual Top 100 players list and like last year, Louisville is well represented.  The defending national champs have four players named as this year’s group of Cardinals seem poised to return to the Final Four again.  You can easily argue that the Final Four MOP Luke Hancock should be included in the Top 100, but for the most part, the  CBS panel got it right.  As has been the case in most preseason polls, also ranked UofL #2.  See post below for complete poll. 4. Russ Smith...Continue reading » has released their preseason college basketball top 25 (and one) poll and the University of Louisville basketball Cards are ranked #2. Kentucky is #1, and rounding out the top 10 are Michigan State (#3), Duke (#4), Arizona (#5), Kansas (#6), Oklahoma State (#7), Ohio State (#8), Syracuse (#9), and North Carolina (#10). Louisville has a legitimate shot to be ranked number one when the polls are released later this month but you can’t argue with CBS Sports’ #2 ranking as the Cards are expected to be ranked in the top...Continue reading »

Photo – In an expected move, UofL pushed back the return game in Huntington until September 24, 2016.  It was originally supposed to be played on September 27th of next year, but with Louisville’s move to the ACC, an additional home game was needed.  As of now, the Cards are expected to keep their road game with FIU on September 20, 2014 because of recruiting targets in the Miami area.  This move now assures UofL that they will have 6 home games for the 2014 season.  Here’s how the schedule currently looks: HOME:...Continue reading »
