*Chinanu Onuaku has been selected to participate in the U19 USA Basketball Camp that runs June 12-26. There are 24 players invited and the team will be cut down to 12.

*Hopefully this isn’t a sign of things to come in his one year as a Louisville Cardinal, but Trey Lewis already finds himself injured with an abductor strain.

Graduate transfer Trey Lewis has a muscle strain and will miss two weeks of workouts, U of L coach Rick Pitino said Monday. The 6-foot-2 guard arrived on campus this weekend with the hopes of getting an early start with his new teammates.
