Donovan Mitchell, a two-year Louisville product, has made an early impact in the NBA world. This has generated discussions of who he resembles in his on-court performance.  Being selected with the 13th overall pick in the most recent NBA Draft, you can already say the Louisville Cardinals have close ties to the biggest steal of the new rookie class.  Donovan Mitchell left the University of Louisville with a lot of potential to be a great professional baller in the NBA. It was easy to see his skills were well-suited for the NBA game.  As...Continue reading »

The Breakdown – Kentucky Edition Getting to Know the Wildcats: Head Coach: John Calipari Record: 9-2 National Rank: 16th Kentucky enters the 2017 season much like they have in previous seasons, as one of the youngest teams in college basketball. Despite the youth, the Wildcats are once again extremely talented. Kentucky sits at 9-2 on the season with losses to Kansas and most recently, UCLA. The Wildcats schedule has looked very similar to Louisville’s schedule up to this point. The Cats have had two real tests, and failed both, unless...Continue reading »

We’re a little less than two weeks from ACC play so I felt now was a good time to discuss what we’ve liked and disliked thus far. Sort of a naughty/nice list for UofL basketball.  1) Women’s basketball is killing it. Jeff Walz should be the early favorite for national coach of the year. Last Sunday’s DEMOLITION of Kentucky (in Lexington) almost completes a borderline perfect first half of the season. I can’t wait to see this team take on UConn, Duke, and Notre Dame in the next couple of months. Final...Continue reading »

Though struggling offensively as of late, Terry Rozier showed up when it mattered most for the Boston Celtics on Monday evening.  Terry Rozier, a Louisville Cardinal for two years, has solidified himself as a promising asset of the Boston Celtics’ roster.  Now in his third season as an NBA professional, Rozier has nearly doubled his scoring production from his sophomore season. He has increased his production in nearly every statistical category and he is scoring at a much more efficient rate. This is all while receiving six...Continue reading »

One article was released this past Sunday by ESPN, UofL’s lawsuit against Coach 2 was announced on Wednesday in addition to the Bloomberg article and Pat Forde of Yahoo! published his scathing piece on Thursday.  Ugh.  I thought I was over the embarrassing, ridiculous, and nonsensical scandals that have made the UofL basketball a national punchline, but alas, I am not.  Just when I was finally simmering down from all the drama, the scab was forcibly peeled away and the wound was found to be just as deep.   When...Continue reading »

  I was at the Chik-Fil-A Kickoff in 2015 against Auburn. On the first play, I saw a new player in a #8 jersey motioning behind starting QB Reggie Bonnafon. He looked athletic. When Reggie tossed him the ball on that play, #8 began to curl out for a long pass. I said to my friend “that won’t work.” Sure enough, #8’s first pass was nothing more than a disastrous hail mary attempt that landed in the Auburn defenders hands. I almost feel guilty for my lack of faith in Lamar Jackson’s first play from scrimmage...Continue reading »

In Saturday’s battle of the best in Kentuckiana, how do former Louisville Cardinals stars think the current squad will fare?  Saturday afternoon will be more special than usual. Not only is it game day — a Cardinal game day — but it is a rare occurrence to receive a visit in “The Ville” from the Hoosiers of Bloomington, Indiana.  The Cardinals (5-2) and Hoosiers (5-4) meet on the hardwood with two crazy tales to begin the early season.  The U of L program has been trampled in the media with all...Continue reading »

Mangok Mathiang had been settling with the Greensboro Swarm when he received an unexpected call-up by the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.  Comprising one of the two two-way contracts owned by the Charlotte Hornets for the 2017-18 NBA season, Mangok Mathiang has gotten into a groove in the G-League (Gatorade League), the league’s developmental league.  Mathiang has been doing quite well as a professional with the Greensboro Swarm, the Hornets’ farm team affiliate. He is averaging just shy of a double-double with 9.9 points...Continue reading »

The Breakdown – Indiana Edition Getting to know the Hoosiers: Head Coach: Archie Miller Record: 5-4 (1-1) Conference: B1G National Rank: N/A   New Indiana Head Coach Archie Miller has gotten the Hoosiers off to a rocky start this season. IU opened 2017 with a home loss to Indiana State followed by a win over Howard and a loss to Seaton Hall. The Hoosiers then rattled off three wins in a row before losing a close one at home to Duke, 91-81. Indiana will travel to Louisville this weekend to play the Cardinals for the first time in the...Continue reading »

With the Los Angeles Clippers without their top star, Montrezl Harrell needs to impress while being inserted into the starting lineup.  Montrezl Harrell has not had much trouble taking advantage of opportunities in his first two full seasons as an NBA professional. The issue? Those opportunities being short-lived.  As a member of the Houston Rockets, Montrezl Harrell was stuck in a frontcourt logjam. When an injured teammate ahead of him in the rotation would occur, he was an adequate substitute. Trez produced positive results. Thus,...Continue reading »

Donovan Mitchell continues to make his rise in the NBA, following Thursday’s 24-point performance with a 41-point outburst on Friday.   It is safe to say that Donovan Mitchell made the best decision for himself by leaving the Univerity of Louisville after two seasons.  Not only did Mitchell escape the terrible drama surrounding Rick Pitinio, Adidas, and the Louisville men’s basketball program, but “Spida” is now taking the NBA by storm.  Selected 13th overall by the Denver Nuggets (and traded to the Utah...Continue reading »

  If you are a Louisville basketball fan feeling a sense of apathy and lack of enthusiasm for the 2016-17 season, do not feel too bad. You are not alone. While it is of the utmost importance to support the young men donning the Louisville uniforms, especially after all they have been through, the reality is that without having a solid idea of what the future holds, it’s tough to generate the same energy if, say, the revelations of this summer never took place. The 2017-18 season is a band-aid year for Louisville basketball. There...Continue reading »
