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...
