*Men’s Basketball– While some folks (not CSZ) reported yesterday that Kevin Ware had torn his meniscus or sprained his MCL and would miss some time, it actually ended up being just a bruise. He is not expected to miss the game on Saturday. Also, it looks like the Villanova game is the targeted return for Wayne Blackshear. With the lack of depth, it would not be a shock to see him play this Saturday, but the Villanova game was the announced return game. The Cards (14-5, 2-4) will face Pittsburgh (11-8, 0-6) Saturday night at 9 pm. It will be on ESPN as their College Gameday game.

*Women’s Tennis– UofL swept Morehead State in their Dual Season Opener yesterday at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center. They won all 3 doubles matches and all 6 singles matches. Friday and Saturday they will be in Fayetteville, Arkansas to face Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin.

*Men’s Tennis– UofL faces Austin Peay today at 1:00 at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center. Later, at 5:30, they will face Xavier. Admission is free.
