Quinn announced this morning that he would be entering the transfer portal and leaving the University of Louisville. The heart and soul of Louisville Basketball, alongside Malik, provided a spark for the Cards on and off of the court. This season Quinn attained career highs of 6.2 ppg and 3.6 rebounds. He will have 3 years of eligibility left.
"We want to thank Quinn for his time at Louisville. He was a good ambassador of the program, worked hard on and off the floor and put his teammates first. We wish him all the best in his collegiate career moving forward." – @CoachChrisMackhttps://t.co/3EGyS6plZK

We at CSZ wish him the very best of luck in his next chapter!
Here are some thoughts from CardNation followed by the official press release. Much love Q!
This guy was the definition of heart, energy, hard worker and “warrior.” IMO. He brought energy and swag every game. Even when the rest of the team looked lethargic at times. Class act and what I want every cardinal to be! Hate to see this. This one hurt for me!! Go be great kid! https://t.co/ZVUTBMsTke

Louisville Forward Slazinski Will Transfer from Cardinals
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville forward Quinn Slazinski has placed his name in the NCAA transfer portal and will seek another institution to continue his athletic and academic career.
“We want to thank Quinn for his time at Louisville,” said UofL Head Men’s Basketball Coach Chris Mack. “He was a good ambassador of the program, worked hard on and off the floor and put his teammates first. We wish him all the best in his collegiate career moving forward.”
“The city of Louisville has shown this kid from Houston so much love ever since I committed,” said Slazinski. “I have appreciated everything and will take a piece of the Ville with me as I continue my college basketball career. I have decided it’s best for my career to enter the transfer portal.”
A 6-8 sophomore from Houston, Texas, Slazinski averaged 6.2 points and 3.6 rebounds last season for the Cardinals while starting eight of the 20 games in which he played. His 124 points and 71 rebounds in 20 games were more than seven times what he produced in 15 games as a freshman. He contributed seven points and five rebounds against Virginia on March 6, his seventh game of the season with five or more rebounds.
A communications major, Slazinski came off the bench against Notre Dame to score 10 points and grab five rebounds. It was his fifth double-digit scoring game of his career and the first in 10 games. He scored a career-high 11 points at Wisconsin, adding five rebounds without a turnover.
Before joining the Cardinals, Slazinski averaged 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists on a balanced team in his final season in 2018-19 at Huntington Prep, which posted a 20-5 record and No. 16 national ranking among prep schools. He was selected to the All-USA West Virginia Boys Basketball Team second team.
