Still speechless. Still amazed. I was a believer. I never felt we would lose this game...until the 13 minute mark down 12. Gorgui had 4 fouls, Siva was quiet, Russ had 3 fouls and I kept waiting for the fourth, Wayne was no where to be found. WSU was in the double bonus!! This game was over. I sent a friend a text and all it said was this "not like this, we can't leave this tournament like this." Then, the most amazing thing happened. I sat quietly with my family during the comeback until Luke hit the 3 to put us up by 1, I jumped put of my seat and screamed "F yes!" what an amazing win.
This team is special. Gorgui and Wayne had 0! Siva was ice cold. No Ware. But this team pulled together and won. Weve won a tournament game every way possible. Every championship team has that one game they had to survive! This team is amazing!
I had a question. I remember seeing the Trey Lyles tweet stating something like "man, I kind of want to be a Cardinal." Had anyone heard about this run, how the team/coaches/fanbase/nation rallied behind Ware make any progress on recruiting? I'm not looking ahead (well I guess I am, mainly because I'm trying to pass the next 36 hours!) but I just can't imagine this NOT improving our recruiting. This team is a family. The coaches genuinely LOVE the players. Mix that and our facilities and being a constant top program entering the ACC and how could you not want to play for Louisville. Of course, I'm biased though. I was just curious if anyone had heard of any signs of this.
I love this team. I love this University. I love all of you! One more game...one more game!
