(Photo – USA Today)   Rick Pitino first floated a rumor about Louisville and Indiana rescheduling a series earlier this year during a press conference and today he delivered news that the two teams have indeed finalized a deal to play each other. This afternoon Pitino told reporters that the Hoosiers and Cards will play December 7th, 2014 in Madison Square Garden (aka Rick’s second home) as part of the annual Jimmy V Classic.

Snider dropped 32 points (4 of 6 from three-point land) and was also impressive on the defensive end, collecting 6 steals. Ballard, who lost the state championship game this past March by one point to Madison Central, is the prohibitive favorite to take the title this year and Snider is likely in the driver’s...Continue reading »
