As it stands currently, UofL commitment Anfernee Simons is sorely underrated.  However after this past weekend that will likely change as Simons impressed those in attendance at the Pangos All-American Camp.   He’s been showing out wherever he plays, so it’s certainly reasonable to expect him to enjoy ‘5-star status’ soon. Currently he’s ranked No. 31 by Scout and No. 48 by 247Sports.  He joined us on LSL last month; you can listen to what he had to day about his decision to commit to...Continue reading »

Rick Pitino completed his 2017-18 roster Saturday afternoon when he dropped the mic on the rest of the college basketball world and added unanimous five-star guard/forward Brian Bowen to the fold. The addition of Bowen came virtually out of nowhere. Just a short while back, Pitino mentioned that while he evaluated two prospects in Wright State grad transfer Mark Alstork and little known Tunisian wing Wassefi Methnani (although, he mentioned neither by name), he ultimately decided he was happy with his top-10 recruiting class and the roster...Continue reading »

Let’s project out what the rotation could look like: STARTERS G Quentin Snider – Sr. (12 ppg, 115 assists) G/F Brian Bowen – Fr. (5-star HS prospect) G/F V.J. King – Soph. (5.5 ppg, 2.1 rpg) G/F Deng Adel – Jr. (12 ppg, 5 rpg) C Ray Spalding – Jr. (5.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg) Thoughts:  This starting five will be very good and has all the intangibles; height, length, and athleticism.  Q, Deng, and V.J. are proven scores and Brian has shown the ability to light it up as well as a High School All-American....Continue reading »

With Brian Bowen now in the fold, let’s look at each of the three main recruiting services and see where all of Pitino’s 5-star prospects were ranked. Scout (13):  Samardo Samuels (2), Amir Johnson (13), Terry Rozier (15), Wayne Blackshear (17), Donovan Mitchell (17), Brian Bowen (18), V.J. King (20), Malik Williams (21), Deng Adel (23), Earl Clark (24), Derrick Caracter (25), Chane Behanan (25), Shaqquan Aaron (27).

  UofL’s four man class had been wrapped up for a while now.   That is until Pitino and Co. landed 5-star wing Brian Bowen.  With him in the fold, this is arguably Coach P’s best recruiting class ever at UofL – two 5-stars and three 4-star prospects makeup this uber talented class.   Here’s a look at Louisville’s top 10 class, from highest prospect, to lowest.  According to 247Sports, UofL’s class ranks 6th nationally. (NOTE: rankings in each player bio are from the 247Sports...Continue reading »

Word leaked out on Tuesday that a huge prospect was on campus for a visit.  As it turned out, 5-star wing (No. 18 overall in the 247Sports Composite) and McDonald’s/Jordan Brand All-American Brian Bowen did in fact trip to Louisville.  That visit has now turned into a commitment as Bowen announced it today on twitter, picking UofL over Arizona, Michigan State, and Oregon among others.  The talented 6’7 wing can fill it up and will be an immediate threat on the offensive end as evidenced by his...Continue reading »

  By now all Louisville fans have seen the front-loaded football schedule. Louisville football opens with Purdue in Indianapolis, hits the road at North Carolina, then welcomes defending national champion Clemson for the home opener. Should be a pretty eventful first three weeks of the season.  One narrative we keep hearing is that Coach Petrino is in a must-win situation at home against Clemson. Obviously it’s been close the previous three meetings but I think this is the game you expect Coach Petrino to win. There was the...Continue reading »

On this episode of LSL, we were joined by UofL’s High School Relations Coach Stephen Field.  We discussed the importance of building and maintain relationships of high school coaches as well as the state of the Louisville program.    VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)...

Last week, video emerged of UofL Legend Teddy Bridgewater back on the field throwing the football.  While he’s not cleared to practice, his rehab results thus far have been very impressive. He’s still far from being cleared to practice, but Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to do more and more. According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Bridgewater was throwing with the other quarterbacks during individual drills as he continues his rehab from last year’s knee injury. A Teddy Bridgewater sighting...Continue reading »

It’s always been expected that Donovan Mitchell would be a first round pick in this year’s draft.  After officially keeping his name in the draft, he has seen his stock increase on a weekly basis.  The most recent Draft Express mock has Mitchell being selected in the late lottery.  The website also recently published an in-depth scouting report on him.  To date, he has already worked out for OKC and Utah.  His next scheduled workout will be with Chicago.  Meet the combine stud flying up lottery boards...Continue reading »

    I think we all breathed an expected sigh of relief this past week when Coach Pitino announced that Deng Adel would be returning for his junior season at the University of Louisville. When you add the incoming recruiting class of Jordan Nwora, Malik Williams, Darius Perry, and Lance Thomas, I think you have to see this team as one that should make the tournament. When you consider the experience of Anas Mahmoud, Ray Spalding, Quentin Snider, VJ King, and Co. I think it’s fair to expect a tournament run out of this team....Continue reading »

  Soccer fans can rejoice in knowing that the 2017 University of Louisville men’s soccer schedules has been released. The program has taken off here over the last several years and there’s no reason to think that 2017 will be considered any different. One of the more unknown positives of Louisville joining the ACC is that the conference is loaded with some of the top soccer teams in the country. North Carolina’s women’s program has been dominant in soccer in a comparable way to UConn’s women’s program...Continue reading »
