U of L Basketball – The Case for David Padgett

The timeline for the University of Louisville over the past several seasons has not been kind.  It started with a stripper and prostitute scandal that has threatened to take away the 2013 title, as well as the 2012 Final Four and a number of victories.  It followed that horrific scandal with one that involved paying a high profile recruit in Brian Bowen to allegedly come to U of L.  Not to mention the Bowen scandal involved the FBI.   Continue reading U of L Basketball – The Case for David Padgett

Hot Shooting Propels Louisville Past Memphis – Jason Sheehan

At times this season the Louisville Cardinals’ offense has been quite offensive.  Scoring droughts and shooting slumps have been the norm at times.  However, that was not the case in the Cards matchup Saturday against their old rival Memphis as they beat a scrappy Memphis team 81 – 72 in Madison Square Garden.  The Cards hit 14 – 26 from three point range, by far a season high. Continue reading Hot Shooting Propels Louisville Past Memphis – Jason Sheehan

Strong Second Half Fuels Louisville Past Siena 86 – 60

One game removed from an extremely subpar performance, Anas Mahmoud made sure it would not happen again.  Against the much smaller Siena lineup, the Louisville senior flirted with the program’s fourth triple-double, but fell just short in the Cardinals’ 86 – 60 win.  Mahmoud finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and nine blocks.  This was much better than twenty minute, one rebound, and zero point performance Sunday against Seton Hall. Continue reading Strong Second Half Fuels Louisville Past Siena 86 – 60

Seton Hall Deals Louisville their Second Straight Loss 79 – 77

Desi Rodriguez did everything for the Seton Hall Pirates against the No. 17 Louisville Cardinals Sunday afternoon including the winning basket with eight seconds to play.  After Deng Adel’s jumper tied the game at 77 with 28 seconds to play, Rodriguez drove to the basket for a layup to put the Pirates ahead 79 – 77.  Quentin Snider attempted the game-winning three for the Cards, but missed, sending the Cards to their second consecutive loss. Continue reading Seton Hall Deals Louisville their Second Straight Loss 79 – 77

Purdue Deals Louisville their First Loss 66 – 57

Four games and four wins to start the season for the No. 17 Louisville Cardinals, but against inferior competition.  The Cards traveled to West Lafayette to take on the Purdue Boilermakers in their first road game.  They learned just how tough it is to play in a hostile environment especially with some of the signs in the stands that may were not so subtle reminders of the scandals U of L has faced.  I am also pretty sure some things were said that probably were not so nice either. Continue reading Purdue Deals Louisville their First Loss 66 – 57

Louisville Defeats Scrappy Omaha 87 – 78

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win.  That was the theme of tonight’s game again the visiting Omaha Mavericks.  Louisville led Omaha 40 – 25 at halftime, but their defense was soft in the second half as they gave up 53 points on wide open threes and easy shots at the basket.  David Padgett’s quote was a little stronger, “We’re 2-0 and at the end of the day that’s all that matters.  We played 20 minutes of pretty darn good basketball and we played 20 minutes of embarrassing basketball.  To give up 53 points to a team in one half, especially at home, is just unacceptable.” Continue reading Louisville Defeats Scrappy Omaha 87 – 78

I Am Rick Pitino—By John Huang

Many of you have recently asked me my opinion about Rick Pitino and his role in the U of L scandal. Up until now, I’ve purposely refrained from commenting until more of the facts came in. With the ongoing federal investigations, threatened lawsuits, and invariable delays on the docket, I may be senile before any final conclusions are drawn. So I figured I might as well go ahead and throw in my two cents now before I retire to the rocker. Continue reading I Am Rick Pitino—By John Huang
