Purvis and Blackshear put on show for Cards fans

New, 9 comments

We didn't have a chance to talk about it since it was sandwiched in between a pair of huge Big East road games, but on Sunday afternoon Rodney Purvis and Upper Room Christian (N.C.) defeated Wayne Blackshear and Morgan Park (Chicago) in front of a packed house at Bullitt East High School.

By all accounts it was a strange afternoon.

Blackshear, playing his second game in Louisville in as many days, was hit quickly with three fouls, a move which drew some extreme ire from the Cardinal fans in attendance. At one point, a frustrated Morgan Park head coach pulled his team off the floor and then sent them back out. The class of 2011 superstar bounced back, however, as Blackshear scored 23 of his game-high 24 points in the game's second half.

For his part, Purvis led the victors with 18 points. Both players were named the MVP for their respective team.

Here's the video.
