The Cardinal Connect:
Charlie Strong has added another signee to his 2013 recruiting class. Stacy Thomas, a 6-foot-2 225-pound defensive end from signed with Louisville while on an official visit to the school this weekend.
Thomas, a Miami, FL., native is rated as a four-star prospect by ESPN. He played defensive end, linebacker and tight end at Gulliver Prep School. Thomas is the 17th member of Louisville’s 2013 class.
Thomas did not sign on national signing day and ESPN reported last week that he would soon decide between Louisville and Indiana. Thomas was expected to visit Indiana next weekend, but saw all that he needed to while at Louisville this weekend.
Thomas had offers from some of the top teams in the country heading into his senior season, but his interest level has dropped in recent months, due to an injury. Louisville assistant coach Clint Hurtt had been actively recruiting Thomas a few weeks before signing day.
Adding a player like Thomas is a big addition for Charlie Strong. This 2013 clas...

Rick Pitino picked up his second verbal commitment from the 2014 class tonight.
Shaqquan Aaron, a 6-foot-8 combo guard from Seattle, WA., announced his decision tonight prior his Rainer Beach High School’s district title game.

Aaron also had offers from Arizona, California, Colorado, and Arizona State. He was also gaining interest from Syracuse and UCLA.

TAMPA, Fla. – University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino called Sunday’s 59-41 victory over South Florida one of his team’s best efforts of the season. Pitino was excited about the Cardinals’ focus on defense and passing and also encouraged by Russ Smith’s play. Here are some thoughts from the game:
For a change, the Louisville basketball team got down in Tampa almost 2 days early and it ended up working out for them. The Cardinals steam-rolled USF to the tune of an 18 point victory.
Peyton Siva got hot at the end of last year and he is starting to get into that form once again. Even though Siva’s 2 points don’t seem all to to impressive, his 7 assist and 6 rebounds...
