Ryan Bartow of 247 Sports is reporting that TJ London, a defensive tackle in the class of 2016, has committed to Louisville.
We conducted a little poll on twitter this afternoon. Just curious who you think had the better dunk over Notre Dame. Kyle Kuric or Earl Clark? Here are the dunks once again, because why not? And here are your responses.
Two of the biggest dunks in recent memory for the Louisville Cardinals came at the hands of the Fighting Irish. Kyle Kuric let the world know that white men can, in fact, jump. Earl Clark told Luke Harangody he was going up to the 10th floor and dropping him off at the 7th.
There is so much going on in this first video. Mike Marra open in the corner, and Kyle saying “Nah, I got this.” The reaction of the Notre Dame cheerleaders to what they just witnessed. The phantom technical on Kuric. Bobby Knight and Digger Phelps acting like Kuric just dropped an elbow on someone in a rivalry game and should be kicked out. Just so much going on here.
Here are a few quick details about this game. If these don’t make you want to watch it, or at least some of it, I don’t know what will.
*Louisville’s starting lineup: LaBradford Smith, Felton Spencer, Everick Sullivan, Tony Kimbro, and Keith Williams.
*Head coaches: Denny Crum vs Digger Phelps
*Announcers: Keith Jackson and Dick Vitale
*Game: #13 Louisville vs #19 Notre Dame in Indianapolis.
There is always a lot going on in the world of UofL sports. It is easy to just get caught up in men’s basketball this time of year, but there are plenty of other things going on. This is just a quick rundown of what is going on with the other teams. There will be links you can click on if you wish to read full press releases or recent stories from CSZ. If not, you will still have an idea of how the other teams are doing. Go Cards!
*At 23-6 they find themselves ranked 16th and 14th this week in the AP and USA Today Coaches Poll, respectively. They are still trying to get a double bye in the upcoming ACC Tournament. The last two games of the regular season are both at home, and they are tonight against Notre Dame (24-5, 12-4) and Saturday against Virginia (28-1, 16-1).
Well there are times that this season has gone by quick, and times it has gone by slow. It seems like the last month has gone by at the snap of a finger. Now we’re faced with two really difficult games to get to a double bye. Our fate is in our hands, and we’ve got two very difficult teams to go against. One team is, percentage wise, the best offensive team in the country. The other team is the best, well one of the premier defensive teams in the country. So certainly we have our hands full. But I think our guys are up for the challenge. We’ve got to do a lot of things well to have any chance of beating either one of those teams.
During his radio show on Monday night, Rick Pitino said a couple of things that hinted at the possibility of sophomore Terry Rozier returning to UofL next season.
This week on 55…..
We are coming to the end of another season of 55. Don’t worry though, still 3-4 episodes left this season and I am confident it will be renewed for a third season. Seeing that I am the only one who could approve or cancel 55 I would have to be a dufus to deny the approval. (Shout out to Steve) Speaking of Steve. Did you tune into the brand new CardinalSportsZone podcast yesterday? We will talk about that too. The ACC Championships have wrapped up for some and are about to gear up for others. Where did the Cards start the week in the polls? Find out here.
Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..
We’re coming off a good road victory and I was real impressed after watching the tape of what we did team wise. We moved the basketball very well, shot a good percentage, took high percentage shots, and played good defense. So I was very pleased going into a homestand with two top 10 teams (at the time) and we certainly have to play well to beat either one of those teams.
The new polls were released today and the Cards are now 16th in the AP Poll and 14th in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Louisville hosts Notre Dame and Virginia this week.
Here is a link to the debut episode of the Cardinal Sports Zone Podcast….enjoy!
IT IS FINALLY MARCH and with one week left in the regular season the ACC tournament bracket is starting to take shape. Here is the bracket and standings if the tournament were to end today.
This kid has some swagger to him. He can also shoot the basketball, which is helpful.
These weren’t bad to watch. The pass from Quentin Snider is a lot tougher than he made it look.
This past Monday, the day after Chris Jones was dismissed from the University of Louisville basketball team, I wrote that their “new season” would begin that night at Georgia Tech. It was a battle, but the Cards prevailed and started this new season 1-0. In just a couple of hours, they will try to improve to 2-0, with two regular season games left before ACC Tournament play. This will be their second game in a row on the road, and I think that is right where they need to be right now.
First, the insane reverse dunk from the baseline. Who even thinks to try and reverse that? And then, just a game winning shot. Not a bad night at the office for freshman Everick Sullivan!
Need some motivation for today? Check this one out!
With just three regular season games left, the Louisville Cardinals are looking to keep one of those top 4 spots in the ACC standings, which would earn them a double-bye in the ACC Tournament. Here are the standings entering the weekend and the schedule of games for Saturday and Sunday. When looking at the standings, keep in mind that Syracuse will not be playing in any post-season tournament this year, and that includes the ACC Tournament.
