DeVante Parker Plans On Having A Break Out Season

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

DeVante Parker was a monster at UofL, his numbers were ridiculous every game he played. Everyone expected that momentum to continue as he entered the NFL. Unfortunately, injuries have plagued his first two years. Now he is as healthy as he has been in years and he plans on putting up real points, not just fantasy points for the Miami Dolphins. Omar Kelly with the Sun Sentinel sat down with DeVante about what to expect from him this season. You can read the full interview below.

Louisville vs Jacksonville State: Cards Return to the NCAA Tournament

 

After a year of no postseason basketball, Louisville opens their NCAA tournament as the 2-seed in the Midwest region against 15-seed Jacksonville State today in Indianapolis at approximately 2:45 on CBS.

Jacksonville State earned its bid against most odds by knocking off the 1 and 2 seed enroute to their conference championship. This is the first time the Gamecocks will appear in an NCAA tournament game, thanks to new coach Ray Harper. Harper may be new to Jacksonville State, but he’s no stranger to Louisville. He was the infamous coach of the WKU team remembered vividly among Cardinal fans for the incident with 4 Hilltoppers and Montrezl Harrell a few years ago.

We had a tough battle Saturday and there very few bright spots. One that pumped me up the most was coach Rick Pitino getting hype once UL took control of the game. My guy Troy Turbeville @tville73 put together a clip & shared it with everyone. I wanted to share it with you all. Enjoy.

Louisville vs Miami: Postgame Recap

uofl-miami-300x195

It may not have been pretty, the Cards may not have covered the spread, but the Louisville Cardinals bounced back from Monday’s loss and defeated the Miami Hurricanes 71-66.

With just over 10 minutes to play in the first half, Louisville found themselves in a 14-point hole. They’d go on to cut that lead in half by halftime, ending the first segment of play down 33-26. The Cardinals trailed most of the second half until a 13-0 run pushed them ahead of the Canes 61-53 with 3:59 to play. The Canes answered with an 8-0 run of their own to tie the score 61-61 with 1:56 left but a couple free throws and a big time 3 by the Louisville native Quentin Snider gave the Cards a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Louisville vs Miami: Pregame Breakdown

Miami logo

After nearly a week long break from Monday’s shorthanded loss at Virginia, the Cards are back in action today by hosting Miami at 2pm on ESPN.

Today, Louisville will have 3 of the 4 players they sorely missed on Monday, Quentin Snider returns from his hip injury that sidelined him for 6 games and Mangok Mathiang and Deng Adel are both back after serving their 1-game suspension for missing curfew. Tony Hicks still has some recovering to do, but the Cards are getting everyone back at the right time.

Games Of Interest: Duke Week

1aa

There’s never a bad reason to throw up a picture of my guy THE Redbird. Go to his Twitter and vote for him for best Louisville fan mascot. @the_redbird7. Now on to business. Here is the list of games for us to watch for this weekend. I compiled them & Justin Krueger aka JK (patent pending) (hot dogs are not sandwiches) broke them down. We hope you enjoy.

Games to Watch:

 

Alabama at Tennessee, 3:30 ET, CBS: With Louisville hosting its blackout game tomorrow night, this should be the game that is on everyone’s radar for Saturday. Tennessee has pulled off some impressive feats on the road already, including downing Florida and Georgia and nearly pulling off another comeback win at Texas A&M. If Josh Dobbs can get the offense going, Alabama could be in for a tough night, and an Alabama loss could ignite some chaos in the SEC’s playoff race.

 

Ohio State at Wisconsin, 8:00 ET, ABC: 

The matchup everyone will be watching will be Ohio State’s vaunted offense against Wisconsin’s impressive defense. Wisconsin has been the big surprise of the Big Ten this season, with solid defensive performances against an LSU team with Leonard Fournette and held Michigan to 14 points. An Ohio State loss at any point would create a ton of chaos in the Big Ten’s CFP picture, but Wisconsin may arguably have the best shot at taking them down.

 

Nebraska at Indiana, 3:30 ET, ABC/ESPN2:

Wisconsin has been the surprise of the Big Ten, but Nebraska has also quietly entered the top ten of the polls after an early-season victory against Oregon. Nebraska could be in for a tough road test against an Indiana team that just beat Michigan State at home, and has also challenged the likes of Michigan and Ohio State last year under head coach Kevin Wilson.

 

West Virginia at Texas Tech, noon, FS1: The Big XII may not have any legitimate threats to the CFP at this time, but they still have two undefeated teams and WVU happens to be one of them. The Mountaineers might have their toughest test to date against a Texas Tech team that has one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Patrick Mahomes, and a loss would leave Baylor as the lone undefeated team in the Big XII.

 

North Carolina at Miami, 3:30 ET, ABC/ESPN2: We all thought the Coastal was going to be substantially weaker than the Atlantic, but it turns out that the Coastal has produced some good teams this season. The Tar Heels and Hurricanes stand out as the two favorites for the division title, and may be of interest if one of them meets Clemson – or possibly Louisville – in the conference championship. The focus will be on the quarterback duel between Mitch Trubisky (UNC) and Brad Kaaya (Miami), the latter of whom could be a potential top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Ryan Switzer and Stacy Coley are two exciting playmakers that will likely contribute in a potential shootout between these two teams.

Is The ACC Moving Towards A Nine Game Conference Schedule?

Louisville ACC

 

The ACC Network has been a hot button topic as of late. With the member institutions wanting to make as much money as possible, things are been discussed on just how to attain this goal. One thing that has been discussed in depth is the nine game conference schedule which would be a one game increase. How would that help you may ask? It would be one more game against a school in your conference. More money for your conference schools and if the quality of the league is high, it is another way to build conference prestige. This isn’t the first time that increasing the number of conference games has come up:

The conference last addressed the eight/nine football question at its 2014 spring meetings, and it was a most lively debate, with the status-quo eight prevailing 8-6. Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock, mere months onto the job, voted with the majority, his Virginia counterpart, Craig Littlepage, the minority.

Around the Bases, March 25th 2016

(Photo Cred: Justin Krueger CSZ)

Welcome back to another edition of Around the Bases, where we cover Louisville Baseball from base to base, foul post to foul post.

After finishing off Wright State last Wednesday to reach a 10-game winning streak, the Cardinals dropped two of three in last weekend’s series at Miami (FL) with scores of 4-8 and 3-6 before winning 4-3 on Sunday to avoid a sweep. After dropping the series and falling to #8 in the Baseball America Top 25, they bounced back to win their first midweek road game against Purdue 9-4 on Wednesday.
