The Cardinal Connect:
Charlie Strong traveled to Flowery Branch, GA., today to visit with Darius Curry, a 3-star defensive back. Curry is currently committed to Oklahoma State, but took an unexpected unofficial visit to Louisville in December and is now considering the Cardinals.
Curry is high school teammates with offensive lineman, Chandler Bridges, a current Louisville commitment. He joined Bridges for his visit to Louisville last month and was very impressed with Charlie Strong’s program.
Some suspect that the only think keeping Curry from flipping his commitment from Oklahoma State to Louisville is the fact that his older brother, C.J., is a wide receiver for the Cowboys.
Adding Curry to Louisville’s 2013 class would be huge. He is a 6-foot-1 190-pound prospect and runs a 4.5 forty. Curry has scholarship offers from Auburn, Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Carolina, Southern Miss, Tennes...

No. 6 Louisville Cardinals
For a second straight year a team made a big time statement in the Sugar Bowl as Louisville took down the mighty Florida Gators, who were ranked 3rd in the nation, by a score of 33-23, a score that wasn't totally indicative of how that game went. The MVP of that game? Cardinals QB Teddy Bridgewater, who...
Charlie Strong has landed another transfer from his former school. Former three-star safety Willie Bailey joins cornerback Adrian Bushell, tight end Gerald Christian, and receiver Robert Clark as former Gators who are leaving Gainesville for Louisville. The 6-2, 175-lb Bailey is originally from Hallandale, Florida and was rated the 33rd best safety nationally in the 2012 class...
Injuries are a part of any game. But in college basketball when they strike more than one player, it can leave you shorthanded.
Fortunately for the UConn Huskies women's basketball team, Bria Hartley was able to return from a sprained ankle suffered on Saturday. And she showed no ill effects from the injury.
Hartley had 16 points and seven rebounds to help the No. 3/2...
Every player has that one opponent that for some reason brings out the best in them. For Louisville senior point guard Peyton Siva, the UConn Huskies are the team for him. In six games against the Huskies in his career, Siva is 5-1.
PS3 has had some of his best individual performances against UConn. In his last four games against the Huskies, Siva is averaging 13.5 points, 6.7 assists...
The Louisville basketball team was forced to take a rare game day flight to Hartford, CT., for tonight’s Big Monday match-up against Connecticut.
The team was scheduled to depart yesterday afternoon, but had their flight delayed until today, due to severe fog. Louisville’s plane landed in Connecticut approximately four hours before tipoff.
Rick Pitino has the reputation of being...
The Louisville Cardinals were the No. 1 team in many preseason polls, but lost an early five-point decision to Duke in the Bahamas without star center Gorgui Dieng. Now, after the Blue Devils and Michigan were dealt their first losses over the weekend, Rick Pitino’s Cards set atop the AP poll for only the second time in history. The later part of the notation seems ironic with...
Behind a dominant performance from Russ Smith, Louisville topped Uconn 73-58. This was the first regular season game in program history that Louisville has played ranked as the #1 team in the AP Poll.
Russ Smith was brilliant and kept the Cardinals in the game early. His 23 points all seemed to be at his own will. His reckless abandon to the basket payed off and he shined on...
