  • Card Chronicle: SI writers: Chris Mack will be next college hoops coach to win first title

    The last decade has seen a handful of prominent college basketball head coaches -- Jay Wright, John Calipari, Tony Bennett ... Kevin Ollie -- capture their first national title.

    While the current hierarchy of college hoops front man is saturated with guys who are already or soon to be members of the Hall of Fame, the "next wave" is starting to take shape. With that in mind, Sports Illustrated asked its college hoops writers who they believed would be the next head coach to cut down the nets for the first time.

  • Fansided: Louisville basketball: Former Cards competing for roster spots in Summer League

    There are four former Louisville basketball players currently on NBA rosters and two more former Cards who are free agents this summer. Donovan Mitchell, Gorgui Dieng, and Montrezl Harrell lead the way, proudly representing their college team every chance they get, and Terry Rozier just signed a shiny new deal with the Hornets, making him the highest paid former Card ever.

    However, when the dust settles at the end of July and players begin inking deals with pro teams, the Cards could add a few more names to NBA rosters.

    There will be seven former Cards on NBA summer league rosters this year, and many of them have a good chance of at least snagging a two-way contract and gaining some invaluable experience.

  • Fansided: Louisville basketball: Ranking the top 100 players of all time

    It would be worth mentioning that talent and greatness can be measured in all sorts of ways. The Louisville basketball program has had prolific scorers, national champions, legendary glass-eaters, program-transcending floor generals, ball magnets, pick-pockets, sharpshooters, lock-down defenders, top-notch rim protectors, and of course Doctors of Dunk.

    I feel that it is my duty as a Cardinal fan to bring the truth to the fan base during the annual purgatory period between the end of baseball and the beginning of football. With that being said, I've taken on the task of putting together the best top 100 players in Louisville basketball history out there.

  • Fansided: Terry Rozier gets the opportunity to prove he's a starting NBA point guard

    It's been a long time in the making. Former Louisville basketball guard and emerging NBA star Terry Rozier is finally getting paid.

    According to a number of sources, Rozier will sign with the Charlotte Hornets for the 2019-20 season for three-years and $58 million via a sign-and-trade deal.

    Rozier was a valuable asset for a Boston Celtics team that was consistently among the top five teams in the Eastern Conference during his four years with the team.

    Rozier only started 30 games during his time with the Celtics, however, he averaged over 23 minutes per game in his last two seasons, and was a huge asset during a deep playoff run in which he started in place of veteran guard Kyrie Irving in 2018.

  • Card Chronicle: Terry Rozier signs three-year, $58 milion deal with Charlotte

    Terry Rozier has made the jump from moderately wealthy to extremely wealthy.

    This is the first of a series of remembrances of Louisville Cardinal hoops teams from seasons of years ending in 9. Today: 1959. Coming soon: 1969.

    I guess Poachy Marks is as good a place to start as any.

    Thanks to him, my dad and I were up close for the upshot of Louisville Cardinal basketball's most improbable post season run ever.

    Poachy owned an eponymously named haberdashery between 4th and 5th on what was then known as Walnut Street. One time when I was in there, so was the brash fellow who was soon to become our burg's most famous son, then still known as Cassius Clay.

  • Fansided: Louisville basketball: Three under the radar 2020 NBA Draft prospects

    Instead of talking about a potential run to the Final Four and maybe even a National Championship in 2019-2020, we could just as easily be talking about Louisville basketball having one or two players selected in last weeks 2019 NBA Draft.

    Fortunately for Chris Mack and for all of us Cardinal fans, Louisville star forward Jordan Nwora and dominant big man Steven Enoch decided to put the draft on hold for a year and return to campus with the goal of winning a national championship and improving their draft stock.

    While both figure to be draft candidates in the 2020 NBA Draft, there are plenty of others on the Louisville basketball roster who we could soon be hearing draft hype.

  • Fansided: Louisville basketball: V.J. King to get a chance with the New York Knicks

    Chris Mack's system was supposed to be a hand-in-glove fit for Louisville basketball wing V.J King. At 6'6'' 215-pounds, the junior former McDonald's All-American looked on paper like he was going to finally have his breakthrough.

    After an up and down sophomore season playing under David Padgett, Chris Mack was able to convince V.J. King, a player who's performance still hadn't matched his expectations and hype, to stay for his junior season.

    It wasn't hard to see why King would want to.

    Mack had a history of coaching up wings and getting them ready to play at the next level.

  • Fansided: Louisville basketball: Christen Cunningham deserves a shot at the NBA

    There are some players whose intangibles make them worthy of recognition, even if their natural talent level doesn't reach as far as others. Leadership, control of an offense and defense, basketball IQ - all of these skills can't be coached, players either have them or they don't. Without Christen Cunningham at the helm in 2018-19, Louisville basketball wouldn't have been able to achieve at the level they did.

    Heading into his first season as the head coach of Louisville, Chris Mack knew his roster was depleted and needed help. With just seven scholarship players at the time and the effects of the FBI scandal still lingering, Mack did the best he could to bring in difference makers at the last minute.

    "All I can say is this court is going to look a lot different the next time you see it," Mack reportedly said.

    Attendees were also given these:

    It's no secret that Mack has fully embraced the "Dunking Cardinal Bird" logo since his arrival, even plastering it on the court of the Planet Fitness Kueber Center practice facility.

    By Gabriel Wiest-

    According to an NCAA official, Level I violations will be placed on six men's basketball teams by the end of summer. Louisville is one of the college teams that could be affected.

    The Cards had already been under investigation by the FBI for allegations regarding the 2017 pay-to-play scandal.

    Under NCAA bylaw 10.1 misconduct is defined by, "receipt of benefits by an institutional staff member for facilitating or arranging a meeting between a student athlete and an agent, financial advisor or representative of an agent or advisor.
