CBS Sports college basketball columnist Gary Parrish doesn’t seem to think UofL basketball will be down as long as others think. He wrote an article and in it he pointed out reasons why he thinks that’s the case.

Parrish believes the most important thing to ensure UofL basketball rejoins the ranks of the elite quickly, is hiring the right coach after this basketball season.

You can read his article below to see how and why he thinks this can be achieved. At the very least, it provides UofL fans with a glimmer of hope in these dark times.

CBS writer list Montrezl as 1st Team All-American but says it’s wide open. Is it really though?

CBS College Basketball writer Gary Parrish says this will be one of the hardest years to come up with a preseason All-American list. While Parrish said there were many under consideration he did have Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell on his list of five.

Gary Parrish’s Preseason All-Americans

G Fred VanVleet Wichita St.
G Marcus Paige N. Carolina
G Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Arizona
F Montrezl Harrell Louisville
F Jahlil Okafor Duke


One thing I do agree on with Parrish is, there is a plethora of talent in College Basketball this season. What I don’t agree with is that all five of these guys have a possible replacement. In my opinion Wichita State’s Fred VanVleet and our own Montrezl Harrell are clear cut 1st Team All-Americans.  Read the rest of this entry

Can Louisville still get a #1 Seed?



The Cards finished their regular season yesterday and well………..they are good. With UC, Memphis, SMU, and UConn the Cards finished with about as hard a stretch as anyone in the country. Due to a coin flip we know the Cards will be the #2 seed in the AAC Tournament but where will they be in the NCAA? The one question everyone wants to know is can the Cards get a #1 seed still? The common answer is no BUT CBS writer Gary Parrish seems to think the Cards are one of the teams that still can land that coveted #1 Seed. In his article Parrish said:


RPI ranking: 21 | Record: 26-5
Top 50 wins: 6 | Top 100 wins: 7
Losses outside of the top 50: 0

Some thoughts: There are only five teams with zero losses outside of the top 50 of the RPI, and Louisville is one of them. So that’s the best part of the Cardinals’ resume — no bad losses. If they can add two more top-50 wins in the American tournament, they might have a shot at getting a No. 1 seed for the second straight season.

Regardless of the seed the Cards are looking like one of the favorites to be in Dallas but a 1 can’t hurt.
