Special Events Set for Upcoming UofL Men’s Basketball Games

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Honoring two past University of Louisville NCAA Final Four teams on their anniversaries and two “color” events are among upcoming special events at three of the remaining six UofL men’s basketball home games in the KFC Yum! Center.

UofL will close the month of January with its annual “White Out” game when the Cardinals face NC State in the KFC Yum! Center on Jan. 29.  Fans are encouraged to wear white attire for the 1 p.m. game.  Louisville has won six of its previous 10 games with “White Out” promotions, including knocking off four ranked opponents in those games when the arena was a bright white.  UofL Coach Rick Pitino has drawn national attention when he wore a white suit for eight of the “White Out” games.

This year marks the 45th and 35th anniversaries of two UofL NCAA Final Four teams.  The Cardinals will honor both the 1972 and 1982 Louisville teams that reached the NCAA Final Four by wearing adidas throwback uniforms with features similar to the 1982 team when UofL plays Syracuse on Feb. 26 at 2 p.m.

It is the 45th anniversary for UofL’s 1972 NCAA Final Four team (26-5 record), which was guided by future Hall of Fame Coach Denny Crum in his first season with the Cardinals.  The Missouri Valley Conference Co-Champions featured five senior starters, including All-America guard Jim Price (1,460 career points, 1969-72), forward Ron Thomas, whose 13.0 career rebounding average is the fourth-best ever at UofL (1970-72), and 1,000-point scorer Al Vilcheck (1,048 points, 1969-72).

This season also marks the 35th anniversary of the Cardinals’ 1982 Final Four team (23-10), which had six seniors on its roster.  Crum’s fourth Final Four team, which was runner-up in the Metro Conference, included four starters that totaled over 1,000 career points in Derek Smith (1,826), Lancaster Gordon (1,614), Jerry Eaves (1,250) and Rodney McCray (1,247).  The Cardinals beat UAB on its home floor to win the Mideast Regional.

The annual “Wear Red for the Seniors” game is set for March 4 at 2 p.m. when the Cardinals face Notre Dame in the final home game of the season.  Cardinal fans are encouraged to wear red attire for that Senior Day event.  Louisville has won 14 of its last 15 Senior Day games, including last year’s 56-53 victory over Georgia Tech as Chinanu Onuaku led the Cardinals with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Earl Clark Update

Earl Clark

From Eurobasket.com:

American Earl Clark (208-F-88) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league’s second-best Besiktas and that’s him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 13.


The 28-year old forward had the game-high 27 points adding seven rebounds for Besiktas in his team’s victory, helping them to edge out Trabzonspor (#12, 4-9) 91-90. Besiktas maintains the 2nd position in Turkish BSL. They are still close to the very top. Besiktas would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 11-2 record. In the team’s last game Clark had a remarkable 54.5% from 2-point range and got five three-pointers out of 10 attempts. He turned to be Besiktas’ top player in his first season with the team. Earl Clark averages this season 15.3ppg and 6.3rpg.
