I don’t think anyone will be complaining about multiple Louisville – Syracuse Big East Championship highlights. VillenHD is in postseason form and didn’t disappoint with this one. Enjoy.
How awesome was Montrezl Harrell?

Less than 24-hours after winning the 2013 Big East tournament title, Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals were rewarded by earning the top overall seed in this year’s NCAA tournament. Louisville has won ten consecutive games and is without a doubt the hottest team in the country. Here are some of Pitino’s comments via a press release from the university.
“We are ecstatic...
The Louisville Cardinals have shown that they are comfortable being front-runners in their season-long quest to go further than last year's Final Four appearance.
Now, they enter the NCAA tournament as the overall No 1 seed. A familiar position for this squad, which was ranked No. 2 to start the season and was the preseason favorite to win the Big East.
Last year Louisville...
For the second time in five years, the Louisville Cardinal Basketball program has been given the number one overall seed in the NCAA tournament.
Rick Pitino’s team will be the number one seed in the Midwest region. They’ll take on the winner of Liberty and North Carolina State who are both 16 seeds and will play in one of the play-in games.
Louisville claming the number one overall...
The gravity of the moment on Saturday night in Manhattan is perhaps one of the most difficult things for anyone in sports to properly quantify. It was the end of an era, one of the best that college basketball has ever known. As always, it was on basketball’s biggest stage at Madison Square Garden, with the nation watching.
This weekend, the Big East had its curtain call, something...

March madness is probably all ready making some people mad. The Vegas odds makers are saying that Louisville or Indiana is their clear favorites to win. They set the odds of Louisville returning to the final four at 9/2 and they have Indiana at 7/2. Yes these are great powerful basketball teams, the fact is there are many teams that could do just as well. Duke and Kansas both come...

The Midwest Region is lead by the Louisville Cardinals who finished 29-5, won the Big East tournament, and were granted the top overall seed. However, playing in a bracket with Duke & Michigan State, this is no easy journey to Atlanta. The only positive is that they will only have to face one of the two powerhouses.

With March Madness right around the corner, what better time to start talking about Spring Football…right? If you follow TheCardinalConnect.com closely you already know that I am one of the strange folk in this town that tends to favor the sport of football over basketball. For those of you that just learned that…I know, basketball fan card revoked. So, now that I made...
The Louisville Cardinals are now back to back champions of the Big East tournament. It did not come easily for the Cards as they were down 16 points with just above 15 minutes to go in the game. From that point onward…it was all Montrezl Harrell, Peyton Siva, Luke Hancock and Kevin Ware. The Cards went on a 27-3 run to take a 56-48 lead with 8:51 to play. Louisville never...
