Wayne Blackshear cleared to play

As Mike tweeted earlier, "We're here. We cleared Shear. Get used to it."

More from the Courier-Journal:

University of Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino said Friday that freshman guard Wayne Blackshear will be declared eligible by the NCAA.

His status -- which is in the final stages of being cleared by the NCAA -- was in question the past week as the school had to resubmit some of his academic paperwork to the NCAA. Blackshear was held out of practice and the Cardinals' first scrimmage last week as a precaution.

Pitino said that Blackshear, who had been out with a shoulder injury, was out of shape and would not play in Saturday's Red-White scrimmage in the KFC Yum! Center. The 6-foot-5 guard will make his debut Wednesday when the Cards play their first exhibition game against Pikeville.
