Former Louisville point guard Peyton Siva has been a very busy man in recent weeks. Since winning the 2013 national championship, Siva has been training for the NBA Draft in Las Vegas at the Impact Basketball Academy. He made the trip back to Louisville for the Derby last weekend and then returned once again this past weekend for his graduation. Siva flew back to Vegas on Sunday and he’ll head to Chicago later this week for the NBA Draft Combine.
Despite constantly traveling for the past month, Siva made time to follow through with something that I can only assume that he’d been planning for quite some time. Following his graduation on Saturday, Siva proposed to his girlfriend, Patience McCroskey. She said yes.
I’m sure that there are hearts across Louisville that are broken after finding this out, but congrats to the future Mr. and Mrs. Peyton Siva.

The 2013 draft class will forever be remembered as the “Year of the Anti-Quarterback”. Teams refused to value the top quarterbacks in the class as franchise-level talents despite multiple showing that ability in college.
