Many doubted the staff’s ability to land elite-level recruits once the scandal broke in October 2015. Coach Pitino landed yet another Top 10 class for 2017 and is poised to land arguably his best ever. Why? Because he already has two dynamic guards in 6’3 Courtney Ramey and 6’5 Anfernee Simons committed to the program. These two kids have the size, length and athleticism that has often lacked in the backcourt from both the 1 and 2 spots. Ramey and Simons have the talent to contribute...Continue reading »
Although largely expected, Louisville sophomore guard Donovan Mitchell erased any possibility of returning to school when he announced Friday afternoon he would sign with an agent and forgo his remaining eligibility. Projected as a first-round pick by just about every NBA scout with a mock draft, he decided it best to strike while the iron was hot, and there is no shame in that. Many Louisville fans may be disheartened at this news, knowing it all but removes “title contender” from the Cards’ tagline entering next...Continue reading »

Donovan Mitchell has been invited to the NBA Draft combine. Deng Adel has been listed as an alternate. Jaylen Johnson has not only declared for the draft but has hired an agent, so we know he won’t be returning to UofL for the 2017-18 season. Unfortunately for the men’s basketball program and its fans, the 2018 season was all but set up for another Final Four run for the Cardinals. But now as all of us wait for the shoe to drop on Donovan and Deng, there is a lot of uncertainty on that potential championship run we’d all...Continue reading »
The Boston Celtics’ secret weapon off the bench turns out to be a former Louisville Cardinal. Unleashing Terry Rozier proved to be a key to swinging their first round playoff in their favor. The Boston Celtics are a team most known for their dynamic backcourt. Their rebuilding process has reached completion in 2016-17 following the status they earned as the No. 1 seed in the NBA’s Eastern Conference — slipping ahead of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston is a great team now — winning 53 of 82...Continue reading »

Over the last few days, UofL has been on the market for another big man to fill Matz Stockman’s scholarship. The staff has now found someone to fill that spot. Steve Enoch, a 6’10, 245 lb. PF/C from Norwalk, CT played two years in Storrs and put up pedestrian numbers of 2.2 ppg and 2.0 rpg with 44% shooting from the field and from the foul line. Apparently Coach Pitino is intrigued by his skill set although he underachieved at UConn. Enoch will have to sit out one year Andy is eligible to play two. His...Continue reading »
June 19th. That’s the date the University of Louisville was given for the NCAA’s verdict after Thursday’s meeting with the organization. Acting university president Greg Postel and Tom Jurich presented UofL’s case to the NCAA Committee on Infractions. This has been an awful time period for the university’s students and fans for reasons good and bad. But now that we have a verdict date, we can all see a light at the of the tunnel. That’s the good news. The bad news is what that verdict could include. We...Continue reading »
