(Photo – USA Today)   Rick Pitino first floated a rumor about Louisville and Indiana rescheduling a series earlier this year during a press conference and today he delivered news that the two teams have indeed finalized a deal to play each other. This afternoon Pitino told reporters that the Hoosiers and Cards will play December 7th, 2014 in Madison Square Garden (aka Rick’s second home) as part of the annual Jimmy V Classic. While this is certainly a positive step in the right direction, it should be noted that it’s...Continue reading »

  Ballard’s Quentin Snider, one of the University of Louisville’s centerpieces for its 2014 recruiting class, had a huge game last night en route to leading his #1 ranked Bruins to a 96-85 victory over #3 Scott County. Snider dropped 32 points (4 of 6 from three-point land) and was also impressive on the defensive end, collecting 6 steals. Ballard, who lost the state championship game this past March by one point to Madison Central, is the prohibitive favorite to take the title this year and Snider is likely in the driver’s...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jeff Reinking / UofL Athletics)   After a relatively slow week for the Cards (just one game played), they still managed to move up in both the major polls this afternoon. Louisville took care of Southern Miss in dominating fashion this past Friday night, 69-38, and improved to 6-1 on the young season. Rick Pitino’s team is now ranked 6th in the USA Today coaches poll and 7th in the AP. Next up on the schedule is Missouri Kansas City, coached by former UofL assistant Kareem Richardson (Wednesday night at 7:00 in the...Continue reading »

(Photo – Mark Baer / USA Today) Though we’re only drawing from a seven game sample, Louisville point guard Chris Jones has been a complete revelation for head coach Rick Pitino. Coming into the season, Jones received plenty of hype after collecting back-to-back junior college National Player of the Year awards, but the jump to high level D-1 competition is often met with plenty of trepidation. Also, when you factor in the shoes he had to fill (replacing Peyton Siva, one of the most beloved players to ever wear a Cardinal uniform),...Continue reading »

Coming off of a disastrous and disheartening loss to then No.24 North Carolina this past Sunday, the No.9 Louisville Cardinals (5-1) will try to rebound with a win against their old for Southern Mississippi (6-0). The loss to the Tar Heels in the Naismith Hall of Fame Tip Off championship was very uncharacteristic for the Cards, missing as many as 12 layups and playing very bad defense. Louisville failed to get back on defense on many occasions allowing a handful of breakaway baskets for an undermanned North Carolina team.  Russ Smith scored...Continue reading »
