WAYNE BLACKSHEAR RUMORS

Wayne Blackshear passed on opportunities

Post from: Whatever, Wayne. Wayne Blackshear telling the Chicago Tribune, “I sacrificed my game a lot at Louisville for team success. I tried to fit in too much. I really couldn’t show what I could do.” Blackshear averaged 31.4 minutes per game for the University of Louisville, plenty of time to show what he could do. Wayne Blackshear Coach Rick Pitino made him a captain...

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...

Is It Now Or Never For Wayne Blackshear?

Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect It’s a saying Cards fans are used to hearing: “Wayne Blackshear is overdue for a big game.” It feels like we’ve been saying that since Wayne first suited up for Louisville.

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...

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...
