Louisville Men’s Basketball: IU Post-Game Pressers & Highlights

 

Here are the highlights and pressers from after today’s much needed 71-62 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers. Anas came through with another strong game today and Ray Spalding appears to be slowly shifting into the player we all thought he would be coming into this year. He scored 10 points and added 14 rebounds.

Here’s Louisville Head coach David Padgett

David Padgett- SF

This week’s edition is more of a rant rather than an informational, educational, entertainment or editorial piece.

I’ve had all I can take of the negative talk and bashing of our current men’s basketball coach. I don’t get on the message boards because I can only take so much before I call out people’s ignorance but I do get on Facebook and Twitter and that’s enough for me.  It seems that after every game, I see many people complaining about this team, their performance and especially their coach. It’s a bad look and Lord knows we don’t need anymore of that.

It is my belief that most of these people are diehard Rick Pitino fans. I get that some of you will back Rick to the day you die but this isn’t about him. This is about the University of Louisville. Nobody is bigger than the University, – not me – not you – not Rick – not Tom – not Dr. Postel – NOBODY! It’s time to move on and put all of this behind us. Support the school you love unconditionally. But we can’t do that if we are divided.

That’s why we can’t have people calling out our basketball coach after just a few games. I understand the frustration and I believe it’s OK to call out the coaches, who get paid a lot of money, if they are not performing up to their pay grade but at least give coach Padgett a chance.

The New Era Of Cardinal Basketball Begins

Pat Forde with Yahoo Sports noticed how quiet the Yum! Center seemed on Sunday. Between a smaller crowd than usual, a smaller student section, and a much quieter coach, the entire day felt different. Different doesn’t always mean bad, but only time will tell on how it plays out.

Louisville vs George Mason: Postgame Recap

It certainly wasn’t pretty and it took much longer to get full separation than expected, but the Louisville Cardinals got their first win of the season against George Mason by a final score of 72-61.

Louisville sputtered offensively at times, and while Deng Adel turned in an impressive performance, freshmen Jordan Nwora and Darius Perry stepped up when needed most. Both freshmen were fearless down the stretch, hitting big time shots to fuel Louisville’s late run to put the game away. Nwora finished with 10 points including 3-3 shooting from beyond-the-arc. Perry provided intensity and energy to go along with his 17 points (3-3 from 3 point range and 8-8 from the free throw line). Deng Adel led the Cards in scoring with 20 points.

Louisville vs George Mason: Pregame Breakdown

 

 

If you’re reading this, we made it. After a long offseason full of turmoil, slander, and changes, basketball season is finally here. Louisville begins its season today against visiting George Mason at 2pm inside the KFC Yum! Center as 19-point favorites.

It’s no secret that this is David Padgett’s first season as Louisville’s Head Coach, and as Forrest Gump would say, “that’s all I have to say about that.” As fans, it’s time to focus on the game being played and nothing else. I believe Coach Padgett will do a great job and I can’t wait to see this team play under his leadership.

Louisville’s opponent today is George Mason. They enter this game 1-0, with a 67-65 win over Lafayette. Guard Jaire Grayer led George Mason with 19 points and 9 rebounds in their first game, and while I don’t know much about their team, I’d assume this will be the guy to watch.

Louisville’s starting 5 will more than likely be Quentin Snider, Deng Adel, VJ King, Ray Spalding, and Anas Mahmoud. Much like their two exhibition games, Louisville will have a noticeable size advantage today.

As I said before, today marks the moment when basketball should be just that, basketball. It’s hard to forget about everything that happened over the last few months, but this is the time to try. Despite any recent turmoil, Louisville still floors a very talented team with a lot of young potential to go along with veteran production. This is the beginning of a new era, and should be seen as an exciting opportunity and nothing else.

Cheer our guys on, give Coach Padgett and the players a standing ovation when they’re announced in the pre-game, and let’s kick off another successful basketball season.

Prediction: Louisville 83 George Mason 67.

ESPN Writer Makes Bold Prediction For UofL Basketball Season And For David Padgett

PS-ULBB-Bell-174

One ESPN Writer is making some very bold predictions about David Padgett’s future as UofL Basketball coach and about the team’s prospects for the season.

Myron Medcalf is predicting that, by midseason, Padgett will be given a multiyear deal to become UofL’s permanent head coach. This is music to some UofL fan’s ears.

Medcalf expects that, even with Padgett’s inexperience, he will lead UofL’s superbly talented roster to at least the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament. He compares Padgett to another coach that took over a team unexpectedly and led it deep into the tournament. The coach was Steve Fisher and the team was 1989 NCAA Champion Michigan.

I know UofL fans are hoping Myron Medcalf’s bold predictions come true. Let’s hope they do.

You can read Medcalf’s entire article below. It includes many other interesting predictions for all of college basketball that you may find interesting.
