The Cardinal Connect:
The rumors were flying yesterday afternoon that Louisville swingman Luke Hancock had suffered a shoulder injury and would soon need surgery. The folks at UofL didn’t deny that Hancock had suffered some type of injury, but it doesn’t appear to be as serious as we initially thought. It sounds like this minor injury will not require surgery.
This reportedly occurred during a pick-up game at IU-Southeast earlier this week. I could be wrong, but I believe Hancock had a minor shoulder injury during the season as well. He was allowed to practice with the team during the season, but wasn’t eligible to play in games, due to the NCAA transfer rules.
At this point, it sounds like Hancock will be fine and ready to go once practice begins. If anything changes I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.

Rick Pitino arrived in Hampton Saturday morning for the Nike EYBL and Louisville's search for 2013 big men was in full effect. InsideTheVille.com has the scoop on all the prospects Pitino watched in Virginia.
Rick Pitino is targeting big men in the 2013 recruiting class and one of Louisville's top prospects is Moses Kingsley, an athletic 6'9 shot blocker from Nigeria who attends New Albany (MS). The four-star center spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his favorites Friday night at the Nike EYBL in Hampton, Va.
...another defensive end, Greg Scruggs from Louisville. Scruggs is an intelligent player with decent size, but he needs to add muscle to his frame and work on his technique to have a shot at the final roster. From what I understand, he showed up on most teams' radars because of a good showing at his pro day, not because they saw something particularly special on his game tape.
