WAYNE BLACKSHEAR RUMORS

Chris Jones goes missing, Louisville tanks

Post from: No luck for Wayne Blackshear on this three-point attempt in the first half. Zero for five in the loss to Duke. Anybody’s game until Chris Jones had to go to the bench. The University of Louisville had made three of 10 field goal attempts when Jones committed his second foul at the 11:08 mark in the first half, his team leading 10-9. Duke was even worse, hitting...

Rick Pitino Sees A Lot Of Larry O’Bannon In Wayne Blackshear

Photo: Andy Lyons | GettyI can only speak for myself, but I’d say most fans would agree that Wayne Blackshear’s Louisville career hasn’t exactly gone as planned. The former McDonald’s All American was sidelined with a nagging shoulder injury as soon as he arrived in the Derby City. Throughout his freshman season Blackshear showed flashes of the tremendous potential that fans...

Free throw shooting coming around for some Louisville players

Post from: Free throw shooting is apparently getting more attention during University of Louisville practice sessions, with UofL connecting on 86 of 110 attempts over the past five games. Just in time for UofL’s first game ever as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference at Wake Forest Sunday at 8 p.m. BasketballHow.com photo The Cardinals were making them at a clip of 78...

Numbers Show Drastic Difference In Blackshear’s Performances Against Ranked Opponents

Photo: Andy Lyons – GettyI really dislike criticizing Louisville basketball players; I’m sure they get enough of that from Coach Pitino in practice. And I really hate beating a dead horse, so to speak. But the inconsistent play from Wayne Blackshear has finally pushed me over the edge. He was once dubbed, “Big Game Wayne.” I would love to know who coined that term, and why...

No. 4 Louisville routs CS Northridge behind Blackshear's shooting

Wayne Blackshear new gym rat, new team captain

Rick Pitino is determined to bring out the best in Wayne Blackshear, declaring that the sole returning senior will be the captain of the 2014-15 University of Louisville basketball team. That’s Pitino doing his motivational thing again, taking extraordinary measures to get into a young man’s head, adding the burden of leadership to a role player, calculating that Blackshear will...

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...

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...
