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!
