  The Louisville basketball team will not only be a contender for the national championship during the 2016-17 season, but the expected loss of starting center Chinanu Onuaku can be offset by reserve center and team captain Mangok Mathiang.

Chinanu Onuaku was and is the talk of the town today.  First – and more importantly – he underwent a minor heart procedure to correct the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.  That surgery will keep him out 7-10 days before he can get back out on the court to workout for NBA teams.  That all but means he’s gone to the NBA Draft since the deadline is May 25th.
