Pitino Says Harrell Will Participate In Senior Day, But Rozier Won’t

Photo: Andy Lyons | Getty ImagesDuring his weekly radio show on Monday evening, Rick Pitino announced that junior forward Montrezl Harrell will join Wayne Blackshear as part of Saturday’s “Senior Day Festivities.” Blackshear is now the only senior on the team since Chris Jones was dismissed last week.

Pitino: “If Terry Rozier Is A Guaranteed First-Round Draft Choice, He’ll Go”

Louisville is hosting Notre Dame tomorrow night, and it will be senior night at the KFC Yum! Center. The Cardinals will honor graduating seniors Montrezl Harrell and Wayne Blackshear, but not sophomore guard Terry Rozier.  The only reason Rozier could conceivably be honored? There’s a lot of speculation that he’ll be leaving school early to turn pro. Pitino addressed what he...

Rick Pitino: Louisville vs. Virginia Won’t Be Exciting “Unless You Like Rock Fights”

Don’t accuse Rick Pitino of being unrealistic. Louisville has has mixed results in the fallout of the Chris Jones dismissal.

Report: Junior College Guard Teyvon Myers Will Visit Louisville Next Week

Photo: Crystal HotchkissAs most of you are aware, Rick Pitino and his staff are keeping their options open when it comes to adding players to the roster for the 2015-16 season.

Louisville basketball dangerous when cornered

Post from: Not the first rodeo for Rick Pitino, losing a player to self-inflicted wounds, his team forced to make adjustments, backed in†o a corner, challenged by adversity, seeking to remain relevant. Never expect a Pitino-coached team to quietly fade away or throw in the towel under the worst of circumstance. “We don’t do that,” he said after the University of Louisville’s...

Montrezl Harrell Violated FSU’s Robbie Berwick on Heavy Duty Alley-Oop

Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell is a 6’8″, 240-pound powerful man with a reputation for throwing basketballs into the face of humans.

Assorted Basketball Items, 2/26

Not quite VT. Almost, but not quite. The Louisville Chris Jones was suspended, reinstated and then booted off the Cardinals Sunday. Rick Pitino said he would have nothing more to say on the matter. I’m guessing he won’t be able to play that card very well in light of the news. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of former University of Louisville basketball player Chris...

An Uncomfortable Conversation: The Mess At Louisville Involving Rick Pitino and Chris Jones

The reason for the dismissal of Chris Jones from the Louisville basketball program is now public, and it isn’t very pretty. According to multiple reports, Jones — who had some issues in the past — texted threats to a woman because she messed up his room. Because of this incident, Jones was dismissed from the program and his former coach, Rick Pitino, told the press that it...

Sometimes during the thrill of a competition players have been known to do things that they probably didn't mean to do. If they are lucky what they do will not hurt the team, themselves or anyone else. However, when you have a brain fart during a game something is bound to happen like it did during Saturday's Louisville-Miami game when Montrezl Harrell had a bit of a brain fart...

No Chris Jonesing, Louisville offense tanks at Syracuse

Post from: A skeptic might be tempted to conclude that this offensive approach was what Rick Pitino had in mind for the University of Louisville basketball team with the recent benching and suspension of Chris Jones. Probably beside the point because it’s starting to sound like the suspension wasn’t totally Pitino’s decision alone, as if he may have run afoul of some external constraints...

For now, he’s out, having been temporarily suspended for a violation of team rules. Jones will not make the trip to Syracuse for Wednesday’s game...

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.
