(Photo – Kathy Willens / AP) I couldn’t help but watch yesterday’s games in the American Athletic Conference Tournament and yearn for the old days of the Big East. The crowds were sparse and, quite frankly, there wasn’t any energy in the FedEx Forum until hometown Memphis took the floor at roughly 9:30 p.m. Even the announcers – Mike Patrick and Tim Welsh on one team and Dave O’Brien and Doris Burke on the other – left something to be desired. After all, nothing beats the ball-busting trio of Sean...Continue reading »

Photo – @UofLFootball Coach Petrino will be roaming the sidelines at UofL in an official capacity once again next Tuesday as spring practice gets underway.  With that said, Sporting News’ lead college football writer Matt Hayes thinks that Petrino will be successful at UofL – again – in relatively short order, even with the move to the ACC. Petrino had Arkansas in the top five — and primed for a run at a national title — before he ran his career into a ditch with some poor off-field decisions. Think about that...Continue reading »

Cruey/Orlando Sentinel) Louisville’s most recent addition to the 2014 recruiting class, 7-1 Egyptian-born PF/C Anas Osama Mahmoud, gives the Cards’ six-man 2014 recruiting class an average height of 6-9.5. Along with Mahmoud, donning Louisville uniforms next season will be 7-2 center Matz Stockman, 6-10 center Chinanu Onuaku, 6-9 PF Jaylen Johnson, 6-8 SF Shaqquan Aaron and 6-1.5 PG Quentin Snider.

(Photo – Wayne Litmer / Max Preps) For the second straight season the Ballard Bruins will come up short of their ultimate goal: a Kentucky state championship. One year ago the Bruins made it to the Sweet-16 title game only to lose a heart-breaker to Madison Central, 65-64. However, this time the state’s #1 team couldn’t get out of its own Region. In another tough match-up with Trinity, Ballard just didn’t have enough and fell 58-55, as Louisville head coach Rick Pitino looked on from the stands. Pitino, of course, had...Continue reading »
