LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — In its first home game of the season Sunday, Louisville at times looked like it was in midseason form against Youngstown State.
Zion Williamson, Ja Morant and RJ Barrett all remained in the NBA draft through the withdrawal deadline.
No surprise there, nor for several other players expected to go in the first...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said even when it felt like his team got an open shot Wednesday night against Louisville, it really wasn't.
BOSTON (AP) — Louisville center Steven Enoch beat his defender and went up for the dunk, slamming the ball down with the full force his 6-foot-10, 260-pound body could muster.
ATLANTA (AP) — It's hardly a surprise any more when Jordan Nwora heats up, like he did Saturday in scoring 25 points to lead Louisville to a 79-51 runaway win over short-handed Georgia Tech, but it was a treat for him and the Cardinals to feel so at home on the road while winning their third straight game.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — With his team trailing at halftime for only the second time this season, Louisville coach Chris Mack entered the locker room and told his players they only needed to make one fix.
"I try not to be that coach, but tonight it was called for: We aren't playing hard enough," Mack said after his Cardinals rallied to beat Robert Morris 73-59 Friday night. "So that's the adjustment that we made. It was to tell them play harder or we're going to lose the game."
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — All season, Louisville coach Chris Mack has wanted to establish Steven Enoch's presence in the post. The junior did just that on both sides of the court Wednesday.
Enoch, a 6-foot-11 center who sat out last season after transferring from Connecticut, and Jordan Nwora both put up big nights for the Cardinals, who cruised to an 86-41 victory over Central Arkansas on Wednesday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — Markus Howard had the go-ahead basket in overtime to cap a 21-point night and lead Marquette past Louisville 77-74 in the third-place game of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Friday night.
The Golden Eagles (4-2) were once again led by Sam Hauser, who followed up his strong semifinal performance with 22 points. His brother Joey hit the two free throws to put Marquette up by three with 18 seconds left in OT.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — After scraping to win its opener before cruising to its second victory, Louisville showed enough resolve to deny Vermont from wiping out its big lead.
Jordan Nwora scored a career-high 22 points, Ryan McMahon made six critical free throws down the stretch and the Cardinals held off the Catamounts 86-78 on Friday night.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Chris Mack would've preferred a smoother start to his Louisville coaching debut and seemed happy only about the outcome.
Little was pretty about the Cardinals' opener, but at least it ended successfully against Nicholls State.
Steven Enoch had 15 points including a pair of critical free throws with 1:57 remaining, Darius Perry added 14 points and the Cardinals thrived at the foul line to hold off the Colonels 85-72 on Thursday night in Mack's first game with the Cardinals.
Last season: 22-14, reached NIT quarterfinals.
Coach: Chris Mack (first season).
Conference: Atlantic Coast.
Who's gone: Center Anas Mahmoud, guard Quentin Snider, forwards Deng Adel and Ray Spalding (NBA).
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The competition to earn playing time is already in high gear at UConn, where eight newcomers have joined the Huskies.
So far, it's been just pickup games, limited workouts with coaches and on Thursday, their first media session.
But 6-foot-9 freshman forward Josh Carlton said everyone knows they have a chance at playing time and everyone is looking to impress.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn has added highly touted forward Isaiah Whaley to its recruiting class for the 2017-18 season.
The 6-foot-9 Whaley averaged 21 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks per game last season for Mt. Zion Prep school in Baltimore.
Whaley committed to UConn last week and the school received his National Letter of Intent on Thursday.
He joins a five-member class that coach Kevin Ollie hopes will help offset the talent lost after three highly publicized departures from the program.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Forward Juwan Durham has become the third UConn player to announce that he is leaving the basketball program.
The 6-foot-11 freshman posted on Twitter on Monday that he made his decision after talking to his family, teammates and friends. Durham played 28 games this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.5 rebounds.
Durham joins freshman Vance Jackson and sophomore Steven Enoch, who are planning to transfer after the Huskies went 16-17, their first losing season in 30 years.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut has announced the hiring of a new associate head coach on the same day a second player announced he is leaving the program.
Ralph Chillious, who has been serving as associate head coach at the University of Washington will replace Glen Miller, whose departure from UConn was announced last week.
Miller was part of Jim Calhoun's original staff in the 1980s and returned in 2010. No reason was given for his departure.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn guard Rodney Purvis says the Huskies came out in the second half Wednesday wanting to throw the first punch.
They landed that blow and a number of others during a 33-2 run that turned a 10-point game at halftime into a 97-51 rout of South Florida.
