This is a public service announcement from Rick Pitino*:
Injury to a basketball player is a serious condition. Any player can have an injury; trust me, I know. I am planning to run the Big East gauntlet with a hobbled team. If you see a basketball player with an injury, do not laugh. Take it seriously. Basketball players with injuries lasting longer than four hours should see a doctor. May experience side effects: less-than-stellar rebounding, awful fouling, scoring drought, turnover, getting blown out by Providence, and poor shot selection. If you or a basketball player you know has an injury, let them know that the Louisville fans are here for them.

Not to Mention
Seriously, we have seven players on our roster who cannot play right now. Wow.
Who plays where?
Do we still have a back up for every player?
What's your starting five?
Can't wait for Kyle and Wayne come back!
Go Cards. Beat Injuries.
It's not over until you're down to four.
