The Cards (7-3) will travel to South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish (7-3) at 3:30 on Saturday in what should be a pivotal game for both teams and their postseason bowl aspirations. * Video courtesy of the Courier Journal   VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (2 votes cast)...

The ACC announced that ESPN evoked the “six-day hold” on the UofL-UK game, meaning we won’t know the time of kickoff until after the Notre Dame game.  If the Cards were to beat the Irish, you’d think it would push the game to a prime time spot at night.  For now, the schedule looks like this: South Carolina at Clemson, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Wake Forest at Duke, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Florida at Florida State, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Kentucky at Louisville, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Pitt at Miami, TBA, Six–Day Hold* The following game...Continue reading »

  After a monster game against Minnesota in which he looked nearly flawless en route to a 30 point, 7 rebound effort, Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell has been named the national college basketball player of the week by CBS Sports. Harrell was razor sharp from all over the floor as he connected on 9-12 field goals (including 3-4 from downtown) and also drained 9 of 10 free-throw attempts. Harrell’s jumpshot (form and technique) looks completely different than a year ago and if Friday night was any kind of sign of things to come,...Continue reading »

Louisville missed out on South Carolina guard Perry Dozier, but inked three guys that are a rated as 5-star prospects on at least recruiting service.  Here’s the updated class and individual recruiting rankings from the major recruiting services: 247Sports Class ranking: 4th; ACC Rank: 1st Deng Adel: 4-star – 33rd overall Donovan Mitchell: 5-star, 29th overall Ray Spalding: 5-star, 22nd overall Scout Class ranking: 4th; ACC Rank: 1st Deng Adel: 5-star – 18th overall Donovan Mitchell: 5-star – 21st overall Ray Spalding:...Continue reading »

It’s been an eye sore for a long time, especially after UofL football moved to PJCS in 1998.  But even though the bleachers are rusted, the rainbow colored seats are flimsy, and the turf has rotted, the first phase of the demolition of Old Cardinal Stadium will have a touch of sadness to it.  The football program shared the facility with the Triple-A Louisville Redbirds and served as the launching pad for the football program. Before Howard Schnellenberger arrived, there was real talk of the football program being dropped down to the...Continue reading »

  In Friday night’s 81-68 victory over his son and defending NIT champion Minnesota, Rick Pitino and Louisville rode the outstanding play of PF Montrezl Harrell and SG Terry Rozier to overwhelm the Golden Gophers to start off the season 1-0. Richard Pitino, despite spending a year coaching Harrell while an assistant at Louisville, had no answer for the talented big man, who virtually did whatever he wanted anywhere on the court without facing any real pressure. Rozier electrified handling the ball and driving through the lane as...Continue reading »

  *Trez started off the season with a monster game; a career high 30 points and 7 rebounds (on 9-12 shooting, 3-4 from 3, and 9-10 from the line). *Terry began his sophomore year living up to his offseason hype posting 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals. *Chris Jones was a ball hawk all game long and finished with 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals. *Wayne played well – when he didn’t foul – posting 7 points and 4 boards in 20 minutes. *The bench posted just 13 points, but was led by Quentin Snider’s...Continue reading »

  Consider for a moment what the University of Louisville basketball program has at its disposal: A Hall of Fame coach, second-to-none resources, a passionate and loyal fan base, the best college arena in the country, and most recently, membership in the marquee conference in college basketball. There is not a program in America who comes close to what the Cards have to offer recruits during their time as student-athletes, but over the past several years, the one thing they have failed to deliver may be just the thing that has the team...Continue reading »

  The newest members of the ACC tip off their inaugural hoops season as a part of the league when Louisville and coach Rick Pitino take on last season’s NIT champs Minnesota behind 2nd year head coach (and I think he has some relation to Louisville and Rick Pitino, but not sure) Richard Pitino. The Cards enter the game with a top 10 preseason ranking for the 3rd straight season behind one of the most talented starting lineups in the game, while Minnesota returns two of its top three leading scorers from last season’s team in Andre...Continue reading »

According to ESPN’s College Basketball Nation blog, Louisville hoops Coach Rick Pitino is the best dressed among those in his profession. If college basketball dished out a fashion award, it would be called the Rick Pitino “Do You See This Suit?” Trophy. His $3,000 Italian ensembles are unrivaled in the game. He has a fashion sense that demands attentiveness, style and plenty of cash. Fortunately, he has all three. The Godfather, as he is often referred to as due to his Italian heritage, Corleone demeanor, and most notably because...Continue reading »

  Louisville’s departure from last season’s NCAA tournament was a tough one to swallow. Most notably for the junior wing from Chicago, Wayne Blackshear. Blackshear, Louisville’s lone McDonald’s high school All-American, labored through an at times meandering junior campaign. He started 18 games for the Cardinals, tallying just under 20 minutes, 8 points and 3 rebounds per contest. What was most difficult to swallow for Blackshear, was what Head Coach Rick Pitino had to say at his season-ending presser just days...Continue reading »

The weather in Louisville is awful.  In Puerto Rico however, it’s quite the opposite – bright sunshine, sandy beaches, and a clear blue ocean.  UofL’s basketball SID, Kenny Klein, took several pictures chronicling the day of the Louisville basketball team, making yourself wish you were there.
