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.

As a freshman Dana appeared in all 37 games and was named to the ACC All-Freshman team. She also led all ACC freshman with 3.7 assists per game. She will be an important spark off of the bench as the team chases a national championship.

Next season, her senior year, she will be relied on to take care of the ball and get the ball into the hands of her play makers.

Offensive Blitz Gives Louisville 13-6 Win Over Kent State

Wyatt-UNC

Entering this weekend’s NCAA Regional in Lubbock, Tx, one of the big stories for Louisville was if they could get the offense going to keep up with the teams in their pod (Kent State, Texas Tech, and New Mexico State).

Needless to say, Louisville came out hot and ready at the plate. The Cards (44-17) rolled to a 13-6 win over Kent State (39-17), keyed with ten runs in the first two innings. Logan Wyatt led the charge with two home runs for seven RBI; a grand slam in the first inning, and three more runs driven in on his homer to right-center field in the second inning. The seven RBIs by Wyatt matched an NCAA Championship school record, set previously by Chris Dominguez in 2007. It’s also Louisville’s 16th straight win in the regional round.

Nunnsense: Wrapping Up The Basketball Season

kfcyumlease

The season is over and this the time when I am usually Mr. positive. This is the time when I would remind you that football practice has started and our team is led by the reigning Heisman trophy winner. This is the time I would also remind you that our baseball team is ranked #1 in the nation. This is also the time where I would point out that the swim and dive team just crowned another national champion for the sixth year in a row. I would also point out that the basketball team has some great recruits coming in and the team will probably be pre-season ranked in the top 3. Even though this is the time for me to be positive and lift you up, I just can’t do it. Not yet. I’m still hurting. I’m disappointed. I’m sad. I’m wounded. I need a hug.  Read the rest of this entry

In the fall of 2015, when we heard about the release of a book entitled “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen” we all immediately assumed the book was completely fiction and we turned our attention to finding the hidden agenda of the author (a name that shall never be mentioned again).

Rick Pitino Previews Sweet 16 Game Against NC State

pitino

A good 25 minutes of a Rick Pitino press conference. He talks NC State, “morons” that call into sports talk radio shows, and has a lot of laughter. Good stuff.

Video available here

Opening statement

Well, we’re obviously excited to be in the Sweet 16. We took a day off yesterday because a West Coast trip knocks a lot out of you. So today I’m sure we’ll have a little bit of a sluggish practice trying to get our feet back, but I think the adrenalin is going to be very high and we’re looking forward to playing another ACC basketball game, and we know how good NC State is because they beat us by 8-10 points at home. Not too many teams do that and they did it. We also realize they’ve won 8 out of 10, their frontcourt’s playing extremely well and their backcourt’s playing outstanding and they’ve beaten some pretty damn good teams on their court. We know it will be a hard-fought game, it’s not only an outstanding team we’re playing, but there’s a lot at stake.
