The animosity between Kentucky and Louisville fans reached a boiling point on Tuesday, when a fan of the former was punched by a fan of the latter while hooked up to a dialysis machine.
Louisville guard Russ Smith is the Cardinals' offensive catalyst who plays entirely by feel - often frustrating coach Rick Pitino.
Yet, Pitino knows he can't win without his frenetic playmaker.

When Louisville and Kentucky met earlier this season on New Year’s Eve, Cardinal senior Kyle Kuric didn’t exactly have his best game. In fact, it’s fair to argue that the 69-62 loss to Kentucky earlier this season may have been Kuric’s worst career performance. In 38 minutes of action, he finished with just 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assists, and 4 fouls. To make matters worse...
Kyle Kuric turned out to be the highlight of Rick Pitino’s press conference, looking for all the world like a happy-go-luck college kid as he entered the room, wearing his adidas Final Four cap backwards.The University of Louisville senior managed to answer a couple of questions before Kenny Klein, the sports information director, may a quick motion with his hands, quietly suggesting...

The annual P.I.T invites 64 of the best college basketball seniors from across the nation to participate in a four-day, twelve game tournament in front of NBA scouts and General Managers.

Could the Louisville Cardinals be a repeat of last year’s UConn team? Both teams won the Big East Tournament and are playing their best basketball of the season in March after up and downs during the regular season. Point guard Peyton Siva is playing his best basketball of his career. Along with Siva the play of big man Chane Behanan and Gorgui Deng has been the difference...
If you don’t already love Chane Behanan and Gorgui Dieng, watch this video and I am sure you will change your mind. Video credits go to our man Adam Lefkoe of WHAS11 who has been covering the Cardinals over the past few weeks during their miraculous run. Gorgui Dieng might be my favorite player of all time. I’m not purpin either.
We almost made it to the middle week with little disruption between the Kentucky Widlcats and Louisville Cardinals fans. However, police were called to a dialysis center to break up a little scuffle that took place. Wait, where?
This is the Bluegrass people, even the sickest of the sick live and die with the Blue or Red.
Officers were called after a UK and UofL fan gave each...
John Calipari knows he isn’t a movie critic but when he was asked on Saturday to give an opinion on a movie he saw with his team on Thursday, he gave his honest opinion: it was “awful.”
The culprit the evidently stunk up the movie theater? “21 Jump Street,” the Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum big screen comedy adaptation of the late 80′s, early 90′s network TV show. While...
If Louisville is going win Saturday's Final Four 'Superdome Showdown' against Kentucky, Kyle Kuric will have to contribute more to the effort than he did in the Cardinals 69-62 loss to the Wildcats on December 31 in Rupp Arena.
The Louisville Cardinals and Ketucky Wildcats lock horns in New Orleans this weekend in the Final Four. It is pretty big deal in the Bluegrass State.
One of the biggest questions for the Louisville defense this spring is finding a replacement for second team All-Big East selection Dexter Heyman at middle linebacker. It appears Charlie Strong's staff has already found an answer after moving junior Preston Brown into Heyman's old slot.
