The Owls are now 0-5 and didn’t seem like they put up much of a fight until the second half. Should the final score have been worse? Probably, but unlike most,...Continue reading »

Photo – the-review.com Louisville’s win over Temple didn’t impress the voters, and deservedly so, they voted Florida State ahead of Louisville in the latest AP Poll and Coaches Polls.   Unlike the Coaches Poll, fans can see where the AP voters ranked UofL.  This week, nine of the 60 voters in the AP Poll didn’t include Louisville in their Top 10.   Louisville’s next opponent, Rutgers checks in at 4-1 and received two votes in the AP Poll (34th) and eight votes in the Coaches (32nd).  In these next two games,...Continue reading »

After months of putting the work in, the UofL staff was rewarded with a commitment from 4-star center Chinanu Onuaku.  The 6’10 prospect is ranked 64th nationally by 247sports.com and picked Louisville over Georgetown and Miami.  He is Gorgui-like coming out of high school – his strengths are rebounding and blocking shots - but his offensive game is quickly improving.  In his junior year, he averaged 8 points and 12 boards per game, but his stock didn’t begin to rise until this past summer.  Onuaku gives UofL its...Continue reading »
