Kuric Has A Great Opportunity On Saturday

When Louisville and Kentucky met earlier this season on New Year’s Eve, Cardinal senior Kyle Kuric didn’t exactly have his best game.

If you don’t already love Chane Behanan and Gorgui Dieng, watch this video and I am sure you will change your mind.

I’m not purpin either.
