Today, we received more details on what the lawsuit against the NCAA will look like.
We now know that Gorgui Dieng, Tim Henderson, Mike Marra and Stephan Van Treese and Luke Hancock will be the players suing the NCAA in the case headed by Morgan and Morgan. Rick Pitino will not be part of the lawsuit, even though Mr. Morgan and Luke both agree that he got a “raw deal”.
When asked why other players from the 2013 team were not involved in the suit, the attorney said that “this is the first group of players to come forward” so it is not clear if another group will follow in the footsteps of the initial players.
Chris Mack promised at his opening press conference, there would no longer be “eras” when it came to UofL basketball. Three months on the job, and he has already shown how determined he is to keep that promise. The 2013 National Championship team held their 5 year celebration on Friday night and the former players talked about how Mack has gone above and beyond to make them feel welcomed on campus and in the program.

The people who know the game the best, have spoken. Donovan Mitchell was named “Leader of The New School” (aka Rookie of the Year) by his peers in this year’s Player’s Voice Awards. Now we just wait to see the media follows suit.
