A few thoughts on University of Louisville basketball after Sunday’s intrasquad scrimmage at the KFC Yum! Center …Luke Hancock will be a rock, a steadying influence, bringing a wider variety of shots and higher accuracy than Kyle Kuric. Businesslike approach to the game, scoring a very quiet 29 points while hitting four of four from behind the three-point line.Peyton Siva went down with an ankle mishap early in the first half, missing the rest of the scrimmage. Not to worry, Rick Pitino sets a record telling fans it’s nothing serious.Kevin Ware is playing like he belongs, with a confidence level we haven’t seen before on defense and offense. Gone is the dazed and lost expression from last season.Gorgui Dieng and Mangok Mathiang, at 6’11 and 6’10, respectively, an intimidating combination when they’re both on the floor.Montrezl Harrell has the bounce of a Rakeem Buckles once had and he’s probably stronger, more reliable and consistent.Wayne Blackshear may never be the dominating force he was expected to be, but he’s the one one wants at the free throw line what a game is on the line.Russ Smith is as quick and unpredictable as ever.A Kevin Ware glimpse:Click here to view the video on YouTube.
