BOBBY PETRINO: We had a nice win last week against Wake Forest on the road. It was hard fought. I think Wake played very well and our defense had a great game. We worked hard on practice, looking forward to the game Saturday.

Q. I was wanting to get an injury update on the guys injured on Monday, Lamar, Rankins, Bonnafon, Tyler, Dee Smith, anybody that has been banged up?

Flashback Friday: Freedom Hall Finale was 5 Years Ago

Crazy to think it has already been 5 years since the final Louisville game at Freedom Hall. I don’t care how nice the KFC Yum! Center is, I always miss going to games at Freedom Hall. There will never be anything like it. I was in the big minority of people that didn’t even want a new arena. Obviously, the Yum is a much nicer facility, but Freedom Hall will always be special to me. And I think it’s obvious where the better atmosphere was!

The day set up perfectly. Louisville was a bubble team and needed a big win to get into the NCAA Tournament. How about the #1 team in the country coming to town? Would that be a good enough win? It absolutely would. Bring on the Syracuse Orange, who the Cards have made a great little history with over the last few years.

acc

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.

Rick Pitino’s Post Game Comments Following Syracuse Loss

Opening statement

You know, we played well. I thought Quentin Snider played outstanding. It wasn’t his play, it was Wayne Blackshear not getting in foul trouble. We had to go substitute out of weakness rather than strength. But I thought we moved the ball great in the first half, did a lot of really good things. We missed a lot of shots that would have kept us in the game in the second half, wide-open, we had two in the corner.

But what’s stopping us from being a very good basketball team is the last three years we’ve been one of the most feared defensive teams in the nation, with steals, turnovers, and we’ve just been void of both. I’m going to put out there on Kenny (Klein’s) web site to try and motivate our guys — who’s getting the deflections. Again, we’re falling short of it, so I’m using you to motivate my players.

Louisville at Syracuse: Post Game Thoughts

Nevermind the freezing temperatures outside. If you get on social media, the world seems to be ending and it has nothing to do with weather. It has everything to do with Louisville losing their second basketball game in a row. This game had plenty of storylines if you are a Cards fan, from a suspended point guard to a senior not exactly stuffing the stat sheet. Here are just some of my quick hitting thoughts after the 69-59 loss at Syracuse. I won’t try to paint a National Championship picture, but I also won’t act like we should give up the sport for good after this season. This will just be honest opinions from yours truly, a fellow fan of the Cards.

Rick Pitino Talks Lack of Bench Scoring, Deflections, and Chinanu Onuaku on ACC Teleconference

ACC Basketball Coaches Teleconference

Coach Pitino comes on around 1:40:30 of the teleconference.

Opening Statement

Well it’s (the snow) pretty bad for Louisville, KY. The only way we get rid of snow here is the sun coming out so we don’t handle it as well as Syracuse, where we’re heading. We know Syracuse has always been a tough place to play for anybody. They’re playing extremely competitively right now. Three of their players are averaging 38 or 39 minutes right now. So their best players are on the court, and we have to be ready for a very active 2-3 zone.

ACC Football Schedule and Standings: Week 8

acc

The Cards are off this Saturday because of their game next Thursday against Florida State. There are still some other good games this weekend to pay attention to in the ACC division races. The Coastal is obviously all jumbled up as 1 game separates all 7 teams. Boston College needs to get back to their winning ways, so hosting Wake Forest should help that. Can Virginia get back on track against UNC and show that the first half of the season wasn’t a fluke?

And it will be good to see if Clemson can go on the road and play in a loud environment…

ACC Football Schedule and Standings: Week 8

acc

Week 8 for the ACC got started on Thursday night as Pittsburgh beat Virginia Tech 21-16 in a Coastal matchup. Obviously, the biggest game involving an ACC team is not a conference game, and that is Florida State vs Notre Dame. Other than that, there are still some good games that should put some separation between teams in the conference. Here is the schedule, followed by the standings.

Thursday

Pittsburgh (4-3, 2-1) def Virginia Tech (4-3, 1-2) 21-16.
