Jeff Greer from the Courier Journal talked to Rick Pitino yesterday about Montrezl Harrell and his role on the team. Pitino informed Mr. Greer that he is not a captain on the basketball team anymore. While this may be coming as a surprise, if you look at the stats, Harrell is not putting up the production that he was putting up at the beginning of the season. Maybe this will give a wake up to Montrezl Harrell and he will go back to putting up the production he was putting up at the beginning of the season. For us to succeed in the ACC, we need Harrell to be playing at a high level.
Also during their discussion, Rick Pitino stated that the beards would be making a return during the 2015 season. If you want to read the tweet from Jeff Greer you can do that here. During the 2013/2014 basketball season the team had their beards from Valentine’s Day until their next lose which came March 1st against Memphis. I think that this team needs every spark it can get, whether it be beards or the Red/White outs, let this team have some fun for the last two months. Who knows maybe Louisville can finally get the signature win that will help them on Selection Sunday.
