Pitino Names Starting Five For First Exhibition Game

Chris Trotman

Rick Pitino met with members of the media Monday afternoon to update his team's progress and discuss the week ahead, particularly the team's first exhibition game against Kentucky Wesleyan Tuesday night.

According to Pitino, the likely starting five for Louisville's debut performance as a team will be comprised of Chris Jones, Russ Smith, Wayne Blackshear, Montrezl Harrell and Stephan Van Treese. Pitino also noted that Tim Henderson had been working as a starter in practice, but recently suffered a hand injury that may keep him out of tomorrow's game.

With Luke Hancock and Kevin Ware still sidelined, this lineup shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. When those two veterans get back to 100% is when things will get really interesting.

More from Coach P and Montrezl later tonight.
