Soon after Donovan Mitchell committed, we saw the numerous highlight reel dunks of him throwing down nasty dunks on YouTube.  His incredible put back slam against Florida State evoked memories of Dr. Dunkenstein and the ‘Doctors of Dunk’.  Can Donovan be the next Dr. Dunkenstein and lead the resurgence of the Doctors of Dunk?  Yes.  Like Griffith was, Mitchell is an athletic freak who’s vertical leap is a sight to behold.  In a short time, he’s shown off his special talent for throwing it down...Continue reading »

  When Louisville is clicking on all cylinders, they become one of the most dangerous teams in all of college basketball, but as was evident Wednesday night in a loss at UNC, the Cards don’t click every game. Since defeating Duke soundly back in mid-January, Louisville had lost twice prior to traveling to Chapel Hill, both to top-15 teams on the road, and in each loss, they were short-handed. Point guards Quentin Snider and Tony Hicks missed both the Florida State and Virginia game, while wing Deng Adel and center Mangok Mathiang...Continue reading »

Photo-Zimbio Former University of Louisville point guard Elisha ‘Bullet’ Justice cut down the nets yet again tonight as his Pikeville High School Panthers defeated Shelby Valley 60-52 in the KHSAA 59th district championship.  If you’ll remember back to “The Bridge Year” when Justice was backing up Peyton Siva at the point guard spot, “Bullet” played a lot of key minutes that season.

Let’s just clarify one thing: this time last season we were all miserable. By now we were all coming to terms with the self-imposed postseason ban in the wake of the basketball programs prostitution scandal. One of the saddest and most unfortunate side effects of the ban was that our young team missed out on some extremely valuable postseason experience. Quentin Snider, Jaylen Johnson, Mangok Mathiang, Anas Mahmoud, Matz Stockman and David Levitch are the six names on the roster that have played in the NCAA tournament. Q and Mangok were...Continue reading »

The Cards fell short 74-63 to the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill on Wednesday night. As February is coming to an end, all eyes are on March as tournament time fast approaches. The ACC has undoubtedly been the most dominant conference, with six teams in the current AP Top 25 (Louisville at 7, North Carolina at 8, Duke at 10, Virginia at 18, Florida State at 19, and Notre Dame at 25). These rankings will surely change, with Louisville and Duke both taking losses Wednesday. North Carolina held the recently hot-shooting Cardinals to just 25 percent...Continue reading »
