While today may mark the start to Louisville’s 2013-2014 season, the theme at the KFC Yum! Center today is 2012-2013. The Cardinals are wearing their NCAA tournament Adidas uniforms from last year’s title-winning campaign. They also unveiled the NCAA Champion banner during a pregame ceremony. The new banner is positioned next to the American flag, right beside the school’s other two national championship banners. Here’s video of the official raising of the new memento. This season will be a transitional one for the Cards – they’ll be playing in the newly-formed AAC for one year before moving on to the ACC. We’ll see if they can get off on the right foot against Charleston.

Kevin Ware’s gruesome leg injury that led to Louisville rallying together through adversity en route to an NCAA championship left the national audience wondering if the Cardinals guard would ever return to the hardwood again.

Not even close right now but one has to begin somewhere and this was a pretty good start.
Struggling with the their shots, the Cardinals were barely keeping Charleston at bay, holding only a 48-45 lead in what appeared to be...
The Louisville Cardinals will soon welcome Kevin Ware to the court for a regular season game.

Sequels to movies only work when one of two things happen: The exact same element that worked in the first movie is found again in the second, or, it’s the Godfather II.
If Louisville basketball’s 2013-14 season were going to be a movie, it wouldn’t be the Godfather, although some Louisville fans will point to Rick Pitino and claim him as such. No, this season...
Kevin Ware never doubted he would return to Louisville basketball. His first shot, a three-pointer, serving as the exclamation mark:

The first half wasn’t exactly what we expected to see from the defending national champions, but midway through the second half Louisville was able to pull away from College-of-Charleston and cruise to a 70-48 win in their season opener.
