Bordner Earns Preseason All-America Honor from NCBWA
Junior righty receives second preseason All-America accolade after registering 0.41 ERA in 43.2 innings last season
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville junior righthanded pitcher Sam Bordner received his second preseason All-America honor of 2018 after he was named Monday as a second team selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Last month, Bordner was tabbed as a second team preseason All-American by D1Baseball.
A native of Baltimore, Ohio, Bordner earned his first career All-America honor (NCBWA Third Team) last season after registering a miniscule 0.41 ERA, 2-0 record and three saves in 43.2 innings and 23 total appearances as a sophomore. He delivered scoreless appearances in 22 of his 23 outings in 2017, including all four NCAA postseason outings when he piled up 13 strikeouts and did not allow a hit in 10.2 innings in the NCAA Regional, NCAA Super Regional and College World Series.
The No. 13 Cardinals will open the 2018 season on Friday, Feb. 16 at noon ET against Richmond in the first of three games at the Charleston Crab House Challenge in Charleston, South Carolina. Louisville will also play The Citadel on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m., and George Mason on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 11 a.m. The 2018 home-opener at Jim Patterson Stadium for the Cardinals is set for Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 3 p.m., ET against Eastern Kentucky.
Jaire Alexander had an outstanding career at the University of Louisville. Even with an injury riddled junior year, he made sure to let his presence be known when he was on the field. He was one of the most dynamic playmakers ever in the defensive backfield at UofL. We here at Cardinal Sports Zone cannot wait to watch him play on Sundays this fall!

UofL Football fans can catch a glimpse of a promising future tonight at 6 pm on ESPN2. Signees Robert Hicks III and Chandler Jones will play in the Under Armour All-America game at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL.
Hicks is a highly touted ILB who looks physically ready to step in and play a big role for UofL next year. He is a physical beast with great instincts and speed to burn. Hicks is a triple threat because he can play zone coverage, rush the passer, and be a wall through which no opposing RB can pass. UofL can definitely use him with the departure of Stacy Thomas.
Lamar Jackson has been named a Second Team All-American QB by the Associated Press and the Football Writers Association of America. Baker Mayfield was named the First Team All-American QB by both.
Jackson was the only UofL player selected as an All-American by the AP and FWAA.
Junior Guard, Asia Durr, is already racking up accolades and we’re still a month out from the first tip off.
On Tuesday, Durr was named to the College Sports Madness Preseason All-American Team. She is one of 20 women to receive the honor.

Football season is quickly approaching, and the University of Louisville Football team is still receiving preseason recognition. Junior, Jaire Alexander adds to his long list of preseason nods, by being named to the first team Associated Press’ All American. Fellow junior and reigning Heisman winner, Lamar Jackson, was named to the second team. You can see them both in action in less than two weeks at Lucas Oil Stadium against the Purdue Boilermakers on September 2nd at 7 PM.
Jaire Alexander has received another preseason All American nod. While we are thrilled Alexander is getting the recognition he deserves, we are confused why he is the only Cardinal on the list. The reigning Heisman trophy winner, Lamar Jackson, has yet again been left off another list. Check out the Sport Illustrated’s full team below.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Louisville baseball team added three more All-America honors on Saturday as the American Baseball Coaches Association named sophomore pitcher/first baseman Brendan McKay and junior outfielder Corey Ray to its first team and included sophomore shortstop Devin Hairston as a third team selection.
Russ Smith broke the 61 point scoring record tonight of former Canton Charge player and current Cavalier, Jordan McRae by scorching the nets for 65 (62 if you ask some people). Russ was 24-42 from the field and 16-20 from the free throw line. The most impressive part of this performance is that Russ only hit 1 three-point basket. Here are some highlights including the first one which shows all 65 points in three minutes. Enjoy!
The regular-season awards are starting to roll in for Russ Smith. Today, the All-American teams were named for NBC Sports, Bleacher Report, and Sporting News, and Russ made the 1st team for all three! That is a huge honor for the senior guard.
All 3 publications mention the 13 assists that Russ dished out on Saturday against UConn.
Russ Smith, Louisville (17.5 ppg, 4.8 apg, 3.5 rpg, 2.0 spg, 39.4% 3PT): The key to Louisville’s season has been Smith’s ability to embrace being a point guard isn’t of simply being Russdiculous. It should tell you something that, on his Senior Night and just three days after exploding for 22 second half points and six threes in eight minutes in a come-from-behind win at SMU, Smith finished with 13 assists and just two shots from the floor.
