WAYNE BLACKSHEAR RUMORS

Over for Louisville, the end for Blackshear and Harrell

Post from: Wayne Blackshear leaves the floor for the last time, the cotton wad still plugging his right nostril, his jersey covered with red stains, having played on of his better games in a University of Louisville basketball uniform. He wanted this one badly. Wrapping up a career that included participation in a national championship, two Final Fours, two Elite Eights, and four...

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. However, when it comes to playing Kentucky, Blackshear is a player of increased importance. He’s the only player Louisville will field who was a McDonald’s All...

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 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.

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...
