Now that it is December, we have found our first Grinch of the holiday season. His name is Kevin Willard. Willard was an assistant to He Who Shall Not Be Named (Pitino) from 2001-2007 and even recruited David Padgett. While he compliments how well David has handled everything the past few months, he also mentions that he has no emotional attachment to UofL since Pitino and Jurich are both gone. We also can’t fully blame him, he has been gone for a while. Either way, Sunday should be fun when Seaton Hall visits the Yum! Center at 4.

Louisville Basketball PostGame Pressers: St Francis

Here are the highlights, presser & interviews from after last nights 84-72 victory over St Francis University.

 

Before what looked to be a sprained ankle, Ray Spalding was on a mission! 19 points, 13 boards and 5 blocks! Who knows what would have happened if he would have played the entire game. Anas added 12 points and 9 rebounds. The Cards had 6 players in total in double figure scoring (Spalding 19, Adel 13, Anas, 12, Q 11,VJ 10, Nwora 10) but it had a different feel to this game even though Louisville led wire-to-wire. It was stretched out all the way to a 22 point lead with 12:38 left in the game but SFU came back and made it a game all the way to the end. Here is what Coach Padgett and the players had to say:

Finding The Sunshine In The Darkest Days Of UofL Men’s Basketball

On September 26, 2017,  the day started off just like any other day. Most of us went to work, student athletes and students attended classes, naps were taken, never would anyone have guessed the landscape of college basketball would be potentially changed forever that day.

Jeff Greer with the Courier Journal sat down with some of the current players on the UofL men’s basketball team and asked them how they all found out about the FBI investigation. Anas was leaving a finance class, Quentin was taking a nap, VJ and Ryan were in a biology lab, everyone was going about their normal, every day business when a tsunami hit.

While everyone had the same initial reaction of shock and disbelief, it is the way Q, Anas and Adel stepped up to make sure the team did not fall apart. Their true leadership skills shined like never before in some of the toughest days of being a cardinal.
