Western Kentucky will be highly motivated for Louisville

One constant over the years, with the University of Louisville going in and out of seven different conferences, has been the presence of Western Kentucky University on the basketball schedule. They’ve met 77 times since the series began in 1926. If fans should have learned anything over that span, it would be never to take Western Kentucky lightly. Despite the fact Louisville...

Louisville Linebacker James Burgess Will Return For Senior Season

Photo: Pete Cautilli On Thursday morning ESPN ACC blogger Andrea Adelson reported that Louisville junior linebacker James Burgess would return to school for his senior season next year.

Harrell’s Comments Reveal the Cloud of Kentucky Looming Large

Photo: Brad Penner – USA TODAY It’s the same thought I’ve had throughout every single Louisville game. Will this work against Kentucky?

Pitino: They will pay a price

Coach Rick Pitino is not happy. Practice sessions are going to be even more grueling for members of the University of Louisville basketball team following a sluggish 68-57 over North Carolina Wilmington. Too much freelancing, players looking for shots instead of open teammates, not respecting the opponent until an 11-point lead is whittled down to two points with less than seven...

Louisville in a groove, dispatches Indiana 94-74

One wonders where the offense is going to come from with the University of Louisville making it back to Madison Square Garden for a showdown with a good three-point shooting Indiana basketball team. Rick Pitino’s teams have always defied being stereotyped, especially this one which had been shooting inconsistently, muchless hitting three’s. They would put that behind them, putting...

Louisville toys with FIU, but still looking for direction

A few thoughts after a frantic, almost directionless, but inevitable 82-57 win for the University of Louisville basketball team over Florida International: –UofL is lacking a leader right now, a player who can assess the situation, take charge, communicate what needs to be done, demand, expect and trust his teammates to follow through. Just having the ability to get to the basket...

Ohio State vs. Louisville: A game of differing styles

The identity of Rick Pitino teams holds true for this new Louisville squad: The Cardinals once again possess athletic defenders who close off passing lanes and revel in a high-energy, helter-skelter style of basketball. The victim Tuesday night was Ohio State, a team which — unlike Louisville — thrived in settled halfcourt situations. The Cardinals’ relentless defense —...

Kyle Bolin no longer a mystery, leads Louisville past Kentucky

Kentucky apparently spent every waking minute the past two weeks studying the tendencies of University of Louisville quarterback Reggie Bonnafon, knowing what he was going to do before he did. The UofL freshman was out of sorts, running for his life on every possession. Bonnafon still holding the ball too long, getting sacked twice for losses of eight and nine yards. Completng only...

Louisville Basketball Held Savannah State To 7 Points In The First Half, Tigers Are 2-Of-26 From The Field

Rick Pitino’s Louisville program is known for its smothering pressure defense, and it is on a whole different level tonight against Savannah State. Louisville outscored the Tigers 41-7 in the first half. It is not that uncommon for a power program to keep a team to 30 or 40 points in a game, but single digits in a half? That is impressive.   As a team, Louisville has six blocks...
