Louisville basketball 2018

We already knew UofL Basketball and Coach Chris Mack would be facing Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans on November 27th at the KFC Yum Center. What we didn’t know was the time of the game and the channel that would carry it…until now.

Photo Gallery: Kylee Shook 17-18

Kylee had a productive year in 2017-18 as she played in 37 games, averaging 5 points and 4 rebounds. She is a weapon from outside, as she shot close to 40% from 3 last year and she creates a match up problem against opposing post players. Look for big things from her next season as a junior.

Photo Gallery: Jordan Nwora 17-18

Jordan Nwora enters his sophomore season with high expectations. His production as a freshman was solid, averaging 5 points, 2 rebounds and 43%(!) from 3. His recent play for team Nigeria in the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers has garnered some significant buzz. His scoring ability will be valuable as his minutes increase next season.

Darius Perry will enter his second year at Louisville after playing in 36 games as a freshman. He shot 84% from the free throw line and ended the year averaging more assists than turnovers. Darius will be a very important piece of the rotation as a sophomore and will undoubtedly fight for a starting role.

McMahon sat out the beginning of the 17-18 season due to injury. He finished the season appearing in 29 games, shooting 84% from the free throw line, and 40% from 3. He will look to have an increased impact this year with the departure of Quentin Snider.

Asia enters her senior year as one of the best players in the country. Last year’s ACC player of the year will break into the 2,000 point club this season. In the 17-18 season she averaged almost 19 a game, while shooting 40% from 3 and 80 percent from the free throw line. She will again be an integral part of a team that is seeking their first national championship.

Dwayne Sutton had a solid year in his first season with the Cardinals. He broke into the starting lineup a few times and was the guy that did everything. His role will surely be increased next season with the departure of several players.

Ladybirds- SF

The Louisville Ladybirds play a huge part in the success of the Louisville athletic program. Not only are they the catalyst for keeping the fans entertained and the energy level up at the football and basketball games, they themselves have contributed approximately 7,954 National championships (I may have rounded up). They are a team that doesn’t settle for just being good, they strive for perfection – and usually achieve it! They are also very involved in community service and making appearances throughout the city. We appreciate and respect their hard work and dedication.

In honor of the Ladybirds defending their double national championships, here are some picture we captured of them from the 2017-2018 football and basketball seasons. Read the rest of this entry

Photo Gallery: MBB vs. Mississippi State

The final game of the 2017-2018 season took place on a snowy Tuesday night in March. The fans came out in force to show their support for the team and the coaching staff that have been through the ringer this season. Anas and Q played their final game in a Louisville uniform and got the ovation they deserved from the fans. Mississippi State looked like the better team for the entire game and the final score reflected that.

With the Men’s Basketball season coming to a close, I want to thank everyone that has looked at even one picture this season. However, the photo galleries will not stop. We will have galleries from the women’s game this weekend and recaps from the season later on down the road. We will also have more baseball galleries and we can look forward to the spring football pictures.

Until next season, thank you and Go Cards!

2018-3-16 WBB First Round NCAA Tourney-8

This second round NIT game at the KFC Yum! Center was probably one of the best atmosphere’s I have ever been a part of. I am so proud of my fellow Card fans. It could have been so easy to just brush this season off because it didn’t turn out the way we expected. The team could have just quit and turned their attention to next year – but they didn’t. And I believe it’s because they saw that the fans didn’t give up on them. Once the truest of true fans finally got the opportunity to show their support, the team took notice and it elevated their play. The smile on Ryan McMahon’s face as he stood near the free throw line and watched the crowd flawlessly perform the wave, was absolutely the best thing I saw all day.

Below are some sights and sounds from this glorious night (You will have to make your own sounds). Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense | Blame It On The Fans

Darius Perry-UVAThis men’s basketball season will continue on and I am blaming it on the fans. Maybe blame isn’t the correct way to say that so I’ll say “credit the fans” because I am happy that the season isn’t over. I love watching some Cardinal basketball – and if some is good, then more is better. I know there are many of you who feel the same way. About 10,000 of you came out to the Yum Center on Tuesday night to prove it. I’m thankful for all of you.

Photo Gallery: MBB NIT vs. Northern Kentucky

This may not have been the tournament that the Cardinals were hoping to play in, but they fought through an ugly game to beat NKU 66-58. The Cards came out flat shooting 35% in the first quarter and only 13% in the second quarter. Luckily, NKU was held to only34% shooting for the game and turned the ball over 14 times to give the Cards the victory.

Louisville was led by Deng Adel, who scored 20 points including going 6 for 6 from the field in the 4th quarter. Ray Spalding had an off night offensively, but he did grab 13 rebounds. The Cards shot 72% from the free throw line, but only 33% from the 3-point line, which was moved back to the international length.

Louisville will play the winner of Middle Tennessee State and Vermont later this week at the KFC Yum! Center. The day and times will be announced after the completion of the first round.

Go Cards!

Well, there isn’t much to say. No words are going to heal the pain that this loss has brought to Cardnation tonight. The team showed heart and fight all night long. They controlled the #1 team in the country for 39 minutes. Coach Padgett said that this is the toughest loss he has ever experienced. Many in Cardnation are going to feel the same way after this result. This game meant so much to this team that is in desperate need of a signature win. Not to mention this should have been the game that ended the drought against Virginia.

All that being said, this team has one more game left before tournament play. The Cards travel to N.C. State in two days to fight for their seeding in the conference and NCAA tournament. This team has the opportunity to end the season on a high note and head into the ACC tournament with some momentum. This one hurts, but it’s not the end for this team or the seniors.

Go Cards!
