Louisville’s 2017 4-star incoming Guard Darius Perry was asked about his decision to join the Cardinal Basketball Program. The soon-to-be freshman was asked about his reasoning for committing to Rick Pitino. His response was one most would agree to be true, he loves the development and improvement for which Pitino is widely known. He made comparisons to players from other programs that hadn’t seen the same development as those in the Louisville program, one of those players being Isaiah Briscoe.
The Louisville Cardinals had 4 signees participate in the Kentucky Derby Festival Classic basketball game held at Freedom Hall on Saturday night in front of a crowd of 4,812. This was many fans first and last chance to see them before they put on a Cardinal uniform. You can’t judge what type of player they will be in college by their performance in this game. You can, however, judge their personality and character.
Darius Perry was not even originally scheduled to be a participant in the KDF Dunk Contest but when Lance Thomas decided not to do it, Darius stepped up and made it to the finals. He didn’t win but his attempts are worth watching especially since he had help with future teammate (I hope), Donovan Mitchell. Darius played a nice game and scored 22 points in front of a crowd of 4,812 in Freedom Hall. Here are some pictures and videos of Darius. Full photo gallery from the game will be posted soon so please check back with us for photos of all 4 future Cards. Read the rest of this entry
The Ky Derby Festival night of Future Stars was held tonight in New Albany at Indiana University Southeast. The athletes competed in 2 on 2 competition, 3 point and dunk contests. The finals of the 3 point and dunk contests will be held tomorrow night at halftime of the Derby Festival Classic held at Freedom Hall. Louisville commit, Darius Perry, made the finals of the dunk contest after hammering home the final dunk of the night. It was a dunk that Donovan Mitchell told him to try. Perry also told me that Mitchell gave him a dunk to try in the finals but wouldn’t reveal what dunk he will attempt. Donovan and Deng Adel both were both in attendance tonight for the dunk contest.
