Cards look aWARE and Defeat Pikeville 90-61

Kevin Ware

Chris Jones scored 19 points and Montrezl Harrell added 18 as the No. 3 Cardinals went on to a 90-61 exhibition victory over Pikeville. The defending national champion Cardinals shot 33 of 64 from the field (51.6 percent) and held the NAIA Bears to 34 percent. Russ Smith added 12 points, and Wayne Blackshear had 10 for Louisville. Kevin Ware, who had that gruesome injury last March, returned to action tonight and scored on his first attempt from the field, a 3 point basket. Ironically the shot was taken and made from almost the exact spot on the court that the injury occurred in Indianapolis. It was good to see him out there doing what he loved again. When asked how he felt:

“Basketball-wise I feel like myself,” said Ware, who wore black wraps on both of his lower legs. “My speed and everything, jumping-wise, feels back to normal. I feel fine.”
