GIF: Lousiville Forward Montrezl Harrell Caught A Ridiculous Fast Break Alley-Oop Against UNC

No. 10 Louisville has had a world of trouble hitting shots from the outside all afternoon against No. 13 North Carolina.

Todd Grantham flirts with Oakland but will stay with Louisville

News broke yesterday that Louisville Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was interviewing for the same position with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. Today, it was announced that the Raiders had offered him a two-year contract. Last year, Grantham signed a five-year contract with Louisville when he jumped from Georgia so I’m going to take a small leap and say that’s a significant...

Pitino resurrects Louisville offense

Post from: Rick Pitino has been there a few times before during his illustrious career, facing skepticism, doubt and criticism. Even having to admit that he didn’t have enough talent. None of these things have impeded him from getting the best out of his team. There he was doing his thing again Sunday, a week after his team had managed to hit only 22% of its shots in the first...

Pitino resorts to the beard thing again

Post from: Reports of the return of the bearded approach for the University of Louisville basketball team are true, Coach Rick Pitino showing up with stubble at his pre-game press conference. A rally beard, he called it, something to help the team get going again. Possibly an over-reaction to losing one game, that 11-point loss to Duke last weekend. Not an original approach...

Harrell’s loss as captain is a big deal

Post from: Montrezl Harrell has stepped aside as co-captain of the University of Louisville basketball team, leaving Wayne Blackshear as captain after 18 games, nearing the stretch drive. Whether Harrell was asked to step aside or he wanted to be relieved is not clear, the action is almost unprecedented. Why would a coach ask a player to quit being a team captain? Why would Harrell not...

Big men of little consequence for Louisville basketball

Post from: So many big men, probably the most ever on a University of Louisville basketball roster. They make quite an impression in airport concourses. But that’s where the positive impact ends. So little impact in games against good teams, not much better against the others. Chinanu Onuaku lacking focus. Rick Pitino can choose from 6-foot-10 Chinanu Onuaku, 6-foot-10 Magok...

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...

What We Learned from Duke’s Win at Louisville

Duke’s 63-52 victory at Louisville on Saturday taught us a whole lot about both squads.
