Found October 01, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
The Louisville basketball team got their practices started over the weekend and the first Red & White scrimmage is just four days away. With the season quickly approaching, Rick Pitino has been making his local radio rounds. Last night Pitino was a guest on 84WHAS and this morning he called in to 790WKRD. The majority of both conversations were regarding his new book, “The One Day Contract,” which is now on sale. Pitino will be signing copies of the book on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 7-8:30 p.m. at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub and Restaurant, located at 3900 Shelbyville Rd. Coach P also spent some time talking about the early practices and have an update on some of his players. One player in particular that Pitino talked about was fifth year senior center Stephan Van Treese. Things could obviously change from now until the season opener, but Pitino says he expects Van Treese to be the starter. “Van Treese will start at the five,” Pitino tells Early Birds host Jody Demling. “You could go ...

Pitino Showing Interest In Junior College Big Man

WTC Athletics At this point, all signs point to Louisville landing 6-foot-9 center Chinanu Onuaku on Friday afternoon when he’s set to make his college decision. Miami and Georgetown are also in the mix, but it certainly looks like Louisville is in the driver seat.

The Strong Seattle Pipeline Will Continue With Shaqquan Aaron The Seattle pipeline has been good to Rick Pitino over the years.

Emerald City native Shaqquan Aaron could be the next Louisville star...

Joanne...

No. 7 Louisville prepares for Temple after a bye

While Louisville is getting ready for its conference opener, the Cardinals' biggest obstacle in winning a national championship could be their schedule. That was reinforced in this week's Top 25 rankings. The idle Cardinals (4-0) remained seventh after their bye, but Georgia leapfrogged them to No. 6 following its Southeastern Conference victory over LSU. Louisville'...

In this week’s edition of the “Forde Yard Dash” from Yahoo! Sports’ Pat Forde, there was breakdown of the worst hires in college football over the last decade.

The Louisville Offense May Have Been Holding Back In The First Four Weeks

Shawn Watson’s offense has been pretty explosive so far this season. In the first four games, Louisville is averaging 48-points per game, which ranks seventh in the country. I realize the schedule hasn’t been very tough, but regardless, there still hasn’t been a team that has really challenged Louisville’s offense. The schedule will get tougher once you get to teams like...
