Saturday’s “W” over Louisville certainly gives Kentucky supporters new found confidences in the freshman stand outs Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Anthony Davis. Coach Cal and the Wildcats will roll into Louisville off an ugly, but meaningful win against Louisville and call Freedom Hall home for a night as the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Trojans come out to play.
There are two things that fans for both Louisville and Kentucky will remember about today’s game; one being Kentucky won and the other, the unnecessary number of fouls called. With a total of 52 fouls; 29 for the Cardinals and 23 for the Cats, it is amazing only two players fouled out of the game.

Seneca and Jefferstown take on stiff out of state competition in the Gas Light Holiday basketball classic!
Yogi Berra once (allegedly) said that "it was impossible to get a conversation going. Everyone was talking too much." That's the way I envision a conversation with Pitino and Calipari, the masters of hyperbole and semi-truths.

Yesterday I began to look through video at some of the classic sports moments in the history of the city of Louisville. Here I complete what I started yesterday.
Whatever started the backing-and-forthing between Louisville's Rick Pitino and Kentucky's John Calipari--a rumor spread on the recruiting trail? questionable gamesmanship during a Final Four matchup? coiffure envy? -- doesn't matter anymore.
At University of Louisville women’s basketball games, I sit where I can watch head coach Jeff Walz. All by himself, he is worth the price of admission. He gets excited. About everything. If basketball is a dance, he is the prima ballerina — arms in the air one moment, hands on hips the next. Lips twisted for a growl. Shouting, shouting, shouting! Yet when U of L made a video of him inviting students to use the school’s new online course-evaluation program, he read from a script. Way boring.

Basketball came across the Alleghenies some time before the turn of the 20th century.
