Louisville Card File: Bellarmine

I sure hope this performance was one horse players call a “throw out.” Meaning it was a showing so out of character that it simply shouldn’t be considered. Let’s hope so. Otherwise this season’s heralded University of Louisville Cardinals are in big trouble, Birdsong. Even by U of L’s usually desultory early and preseason standards, […]

Thursday Dispatch: Knights Roll, Mania Moved & Mo’ (Mostly Hoops)

Twice this week, because of circumstance, I’ve found myself listening to hoops on the radio. On Monday, I had a meeting that prevented me from watching the U of L’s women’s game. So I listened in the car on the way home. I was struck by how much information play by play announcer Matt Andrews […]

They’re Back: Bellarmine Goes For Back to Back

Syracuse’s beleaguered coach Jim Boeheim might get Bellarmine’s Scotty Davenport on the line. The coach of the DII defending champs has his Knights back to the Elite Eight for a shot at a repeat. And they got their without starting center Luke Sprague, an integral part of the Bellarmine team. No starting center. No problem. […]

Knight Time Is Right Time: Bellarmine Grounds Screaming Eagles

Scotty Davenport’s mesmerizing #1 ranked team battered yet another Top 10 squad last night by double digits. Bellarmine 67, Southern Indiana 53. It’s not the first time. Hopefully it won’t be the last for the Knights. A plethora of encounters with highly ranked foes, Kentucky Wesleyan, Northern Kentucky and SIU among others, are in the […]

Seedy K’s Sunday Morning Buzzer Beaters

Anybody watching Tennessee’s battle with UK yesterday understands why schools were fighting for the services of Jarnell Scott. Cuonzo Martin must surely be pleased that this front court playah could find in Knoxville the right major for his future field of endeavor. The student athlete can surely help resurrect a program savaged by Bruce Pearl’s […]

Quick Look Back @ Louisville vs. Bellarmine

An overview. One main observation for each team. Without Peyton Siva, U of L is at best a slightly better than average club. Nothing more. If the multitude of injuries continue — and there’s no reason to believe they won’t — last season’s magic will be just that. Ancient hiistory, fodder for my alter ego’s […]

Bellarmine’s Victory Spoils: Voceforte Reigns

So I jogged yesterday in my new National Championship “Trust” t-shirt, graciously presented to me by Hunt Helm, Bellarmine’s PR Veep. It was a sweet gesture on his part. But I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first. On the back it reads “voceforte. Which sounded to me like some secret cult […]

No Bellarmine on Former Louisville Cardinal Goode’s List

Lost in the discussion about U of L’s abundant roster for next season has been George Goode. Despite having a year’s eligibility left, he’s obviously been a goner. (Frankly, it appears his coach gave up on him early on in his Cardinal career.) Given the flaws in Goode’s game, a move across town to National […]
