V.J. King is a 6’7 small forward in the class of 2016. He visited the Cards last weekend and by all accounts, it sounds like the visit went well and that UofL is in a great spot with him. He recently narrowed his choices down to five: Louisville, Kentucky, UConn, Arizona, and Virginia.
One reason that Louisville is in such a good spot with King is Kenny Johnson. Johnson once coached King’s current high school, Paul VI, and King plays for Johnson’s former AAU team, Team Takeover.
Here is the special edition of LiveWith55 with my friend Sean Moth on it plus updates from around CardNation for the day.
Since I could not get the audio to load last night on the Sean Moth interview, I will be adding a special Thursday night edition of LiveWIth55 tonight at 10pm so you can hear it. Also I will pass along a few updates, announce the guests for next week as someone has been added, and remind you of the change for next weeks edition as far as day and time. Should be a good episode so tune in…..
After dispatching Cal’s 29th ranked Andre Gorannson 6-4,6-3 yesterday, 5th ranked Sebatian Stiefelmeyer moved to the round of 32 this morning. 30th ranked Austin Smith from Georgia was waiting and ready.

So the Louisville Cardinals have certainly welcomed themselves into the ACC neighborhood in nearly every sport this season. Baseball has been no exception at all. After setting the record for most conference wins in an ACC season with 25, the Cards were rewarded on Monday afternoon when the regular season awards were announced.
Check out the awards. Just a little bit of Louisville flavor.

As always we hope you enjoy todays episode of the CardinalSportsZone Podcast:
If you want to listen to the CardinalSportsZone podcast do the following:
The ACC has released the bracket for the upcoming conference tournament that will begin on Tuesday in Durham, North Carolina. The Louisville Cardinals are the #1 seed and will play on Wednesday at 7 p.m. against the winner of North Carolina and Virginia Tech.
The format of the tournament can be better explained from theacc.com release:
Tied at 5 in the 9th inning, the Cards scored three runs, including one on a squeeze play, to beat NC State 8-5. With the win, the Cards won every ACC series this season and set a record for the most conference wins in ACC history with 25.
The NBA Draft Combine was held over the last few days in Chicago, and Terry Rozier seems to have helped himself a lot with his draft stock. Sam Vecenie of CBSSports.com made a list of three players that helped themselves and three people that hurt themselves.
I don’t think he put it in any particular order, but he did list Terry Rozier first. Here is what he had to say.
Former Louisville Cardinal Montrezl Harrell met with some media members on Friday in Chicago while at the NBA Draft Combine. Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal has transcribed his interview, and you can check that out right here. This is about half of it, there will be a link at the bottom to read the rest of it.
How’s the draft process going so far?
It’s been a pretty smooth process. It’s definitely been a tough grind, switching from the college game to getting more prepared for the NBA, but it’s definitely been a smooth process.
What part of your game translates the easiest to the NBA?
Rebounding, playing with high energy and a high motor all the time during the game. I definitely feel like I can carry that over to the NBA and be able to play like that for the full length of the game.
Well we got ourselves a “nooner.” The word, although not recognized by this WordPress document due to the squiggly red line underneath, is definitely one that Louisville football fans can understand.
The first home game of the 2015 season for the Cards will be on September 12 against Houston. And yes, it will be a nooner on the ACC Regional Sports Network. I believe that usually means WAVE 3 or WHAS 11 locally.
The Cards continued their winning ways on Thursday by picking up another ACC win on the road against NC State. Here are the highlights. They are back at it this evening at 6:30 on ESPN3 and 93.9 The Ville.
Terry Rozier is trying to improve his draft stock at the NBA Combine. During Thursday’s scrimmage, he had 13 points on 5-9 shooting, two assists, two steals, and one turnover. He met with the media afterwards for a little Q&A session. Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal was there and here is how it went.
How do you feel about your workout today?
It was pretty good. I just wanted to start the day off … Got some shots up in front a lot of GMs and coaches. It felt good to get my motor back on and start it back up. I had fun.
There is literally never a dull moment or a “slow time” in the world of UofL sports. Sure, basketball and football are off right now, but baseball is having an incredible season. And now, three fall sports have released their schedules for the 2015 season.
“It’s a tough schedule with more than half of our matches against programs that advanced to the NCAA tournament last year. We begin the season with one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country and then head in to a highly competitive ACC conference,” said head coach Anne Kordes.
Rick Pitino called into the Terry Meiners show on 840 WHAS on Wednesday evening to talk about the Cards’ game against Michigan State, Tom Brady, and much more.
