It is that time again, basketball season in Louisville. The season opens (even though it is an exhibition) tonight at the Yum Center when UofL takes on NAIA champions Pikeville. There are obviously still a lot of unknowns for this year, one of which is Angel Nunez. In the 2 scrimmage games Nunez has shown that he has a nice looking stroke, and that he can be a versatile player for us in the future. I think that most UofL fans would compare his style of play to Francisco Garcia; they have similar size, similar styles of play, and they look like they could be distant cousins. That being said, Angel clearly has a long way to get to that level and I think it will start with him adding some strength/muscle. There has been a lot of talk about our 2 burger boys coming in this year, but I think that Nunez is going to end up being a very solid player for us down the road.
I want to thank Brandon Pry from cardshout.com for allowing me to use the pictures from his gallery of the first scrimmage game. Be sure to check out cardshout and take a look at Brandon's wallpapers. He does some great work, and is a big reason I got interested in graphic design to begin with.
