Bleacher Report says Louisville WILL make the Final Four



The Cards are 17-3 on the season yet the overwhelming feeling is the Cards are just starting to click. Many of us have questioned our hotel reservations in Dallas over the past few months but the light seems to be getting brighter. Nick Wiggins of Bleacher Report is one that believes the Cards are right on track. In Wiggins article Louisville Basketball: Why the Cardinals will make a third straight Final Four Nick gives his reasons why he hasn’t quit on the Cards just yet! Here is a few quotes from the article:

Rick Pitino has proven to be a master at getting the most out of his players. There is a reason he has taken three different schools to the Final Four, won national championships at two different schools and is in the Hall of Fame. Pitino and his ability to “coach up” his players is the first feather in the cap for the Cardinals.”


“The Cardinals have climbed back into the Top 10 of the Coaches Poll and are beginning to position themselves for a decent seed come tournament time. They currently have three games remaining against Top 25 opponents and several nationally televised contests. Louisville will be more prepared to handle the pressure of March Madness than most teams in the country.”


“I do not believe this year’s Louisville basketball squad is as talented as last year’s. However, I do believe there is more than enough talent and experience remaining on this team to make a third consecutive Final Four. I also believe Pitino will take his coaching to a whole new level once the NCAA tournament begins.”

“Pitino’s knowledge and intensity combined with the returning talent and experience will carry the ‘Ville to their third straight Final Four.”
