WAYNE BLACKSHEAR RUMORS

Despite Big Expectations, Wayne Blackshear Isn’t Feeling Any Pressure This Season

Photo: Pete Cautilli It’s now or never for senior forward Wayne Blackshear. The former McDonald’s All American has had an up and down first three years with the program. Blackshear has had success during his career, but he’s struggled with consistency to say the least. When the Chicago native committed to Louisville in Dec. of 2009, fans were ecstatic. Throughout his high...

Wayne Blackshear’s High School Coach Says He Made A Mistake Coming To Louisville

This may sound crazy to some Louisville fans, but when Wayne Blackshear verbally committed to Rick Pitino in 2009, it was a very big deal. Outside of Samardo Samuels, Blackshear was the highest rated prospect to commit to Louisville in Pitino’s tenure. Because he committed so early, fans spent nearly two years salivating at the thought of a McDonalds All American scoring guard...

Should Wayne Blackshear be playing more minutes regardless of fouls?

Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect If you ask me, I think we’re at a point in the season where we’re fairly sure what kind of basketball team we have. This team is clearly in need of a post presence and there isn’t a player on the roster (anymore) capable of contributing much alongside Montrezl Harrell. It’s time to move on from the past and make adjustments based on...

Blackshear leads No. 12 Louisville over USF, 86-47

Wayne Blackshear scored 16 points to pace a balanced offense that carried No. 12 Louisville to an 86-47 rout of cold-shooting South Florida on Wednesday night. Luke Hancock and Montrezl Harrell had 14 points apiece for the Cardinals (17-3, 6-1 American Athletic Conference), who shot 52.2 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and just under 51 percent overall. South Florida (10-9...

Wayne Blackshear Thriving In Sixth Man Role

Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect I think it’s safe to say Pitino’s on to something with his plan of making Wayne Blackshear his first guy off the bench to get more out of his minutes. Pitino had this to say about his new strategy for maximizing Blackshear’s production: “I think that Wayne is being taken out of games quickly. The one thing we have got to do is get 20...

No. 18 Louisville hits 15 3s, routs Houston 91-52

Things went so well for Wayne Blackshear that when he went flying out of bounds to bat a loose ball back in without looking, it bounced off a Houston defender's hands and right to a Louisville teammate. That kind of good fortune had recently eluded Blackshear, who found energy and redemption while coming off the bench. Blackshear scored a career-high 23 points in his first game...
