Louisville 77 – Houston 62: Strong Start, But Sloppy Finish For The Cards

AP Photo – Patric Schneider Although it wasn’t a win that will mean much on a post season resume and to be honest it wasn’t very entertaining. However, Louisville didn’t lose to a bad team on Wednesday which is about the most positive thing you can take from the performance. It’s not that Rick Pitino’s team played poorly in the 77-62 win over Houston, but there really...

Former Card Commit George Rushing Is Still Waiting On A Call From Charlie Strong

Lets rewind to two months ago. Charlie Strong is still the head coach at the University of Louisville and at that time he had put together what may have been the best recruiting class in the history of the program.

Louisville-Houston Preview

Louisville had no problem handling Houston last month. While there's little to suggest the rematch will be much different, the 14th-ranked Cardinals won't have their leading scorer from that win, Wayne Blackshear, available for Wednesday night's road game against the stumbling Cougars. Louisville (18-4, 7-2 American Athletic Conference) made 15 3-pointers - its most...

Rick Pitino & Francisco Garcia Reunited In Houston

If I’m being honest, tonight’s match-up between Louisville and Houston isn’t exactly a marquee match-up on the college basketball docket. The Cougars have lost five of their last six games and they’ll probably be a total of 3,000 people in the arena for tonight’s 9 PM tip. To make things worse, due to Wednesday evening’s weather, the Cards didn’t actually arrive in...

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports It wouldn’t be fair to describe Louisville’s 87-70 win over Central Florida as a “poor performance,” but with that said, I’m not sure that we learned anything about the Cards or that they took a step forward. “Overall, it was a good victory,” Rick Pitino said following the game. “We still have some areas for improvement, which is something...
