Imagine dropping one of the best dunks of your life on ESPNU and some punk ref calls you for an offensive foul. Imagine that your knee is eye level with the dude taking the charge.
You know what sucks about college basketball these days? Offensive fouls. Specifically charges. The good news last night during Louisville’s 79-58 win over DePaul is that the refs changed this to a blocking call because the 5-11 scrub was standing under the rim.
The line should actually be moved out after this season. Enough of this nonsense where guys just form a wall and wait for charges. If a guy can get his knee eye level, get your ass out of the way.

Could this dunk by Louisville Cardinals sophomore Chane Behanan go down as the best dunk of the college basketball season?Leading 21-16 with just under five minutes to go in the first half, Behanan intercepts an errant pass around midcourt, takes a couple of dribbles, and proceeds to go full speed at the rim. The only thing standing in his way is Blue Demons senior Worrel Clahar...
As diehards of this site (Mom? Are you there?) already know, The Hoops Manifesto runs a College Dunk of the Year Tournament every spring. Our next nominee for the 2012/13 edition is Louisville's Chane Behanan with this vicious cram.
Big up: SLAM
I think we just saw the best dunk in college basketball this season by Louisville’s Chane Behanan last night. In was in the 1st quarter in the Cardinals game against DePaul. With Louisville pressing DePaul, Behanan came up with a steal near midcourt. He then took a couple of dribbles, and dunked over a DePaul player for the powerful slam.
That players was Worrel Clahar, you could...

Chane Behanan of Louisville is someone I would not enjoy taking a charge from, on any court at any time. Unfortunately for DePaul’s Worrel Clahar, he thought that taking a charge may have been the best course of action but he found out extremely quickly that this was a terrible decision. Check out Chane jumping over Worrel and throwing down one of the nastier dunks we have seen...

Hold on to your seats Louisville Cardinals fans, adidas has unvieled their funky, sleeved camo uniforms that the Cards will sport during March Madness.

Former Louisville cornerback Adrian Bushell participated at Tuesday’s NFL Draft Combine. Bushell is the only former Cardinal that received an invite to the 2013 combine.
Although his combine results might not have shown it, Bushell has been attracting attention from multiple NFL teams and is currently being projected as a mid-round draft pick.
Bushell’s Combine Results:
Score: No. 10 Louisville 79, DePaul 58
Star(s): Louisville: Russ Smith 17 Pts, 4 Reb, 6 Ast. (also joined the 1,000 point club tonight)
Story: Either DePaul entered its home game hot or Louisville came out bitterly cold, but the Blue Demons started out the half up 8-0. After the Cards finally warmed up and got on the board, they made a 10-0 run of their own.
After seven U of L...
Measuring in at 5-foot-9, 186 pounds, he may be listed "small" by scouts, but there's no question Adrian Bushell plays big. He's certainly thinking big in Indianapolis this week for the NFL Scouting Combine. The Louisville cornerback (formerly of the University of Florida out of Texas product house DeSoto High) was quick to credit Coach Charlie Strong in helping...
