Friday Evening Cardinal News And Notes

Carter Pierstorff isn't afraid of anything. Not 4th Street Live, and definitely not the Petersen Events Center.

I_medium Kevin Harlon and Bill Raftery(!!) will be on the call for Louisville-Pitt Sunday on CBS.

I_medium The Cards are a four seed in the latest Bracketology from CBS' Jerry Palm.

I_medium This is an impressive statistic:

I_medium Sharp-shooter Maverick Rowan, the 26th-ranked player in the class of 2016, will visit Louisville on March 7. The kid can shoot the lights out and his name is Maverick ... I'm not sure if we could ask for more of a hero right now.

I_medium Updated ACC women's basketball standings after last night's action:

I_medium ESPN has a great feature on U of L volleyball star/freshly crowned Miss Kentucky USA Katie George.

I_medium Lorenzo Mauldin is once again listed as a Senior Bowl week standout.

OLB Lorenzo Mauldin, Louisville: Mauldin said former Cardinals teammate and Vikings QBTeddy Bridgewater, who was selected by Minnesota in the first round in 2014, advised him to "handle up," meaning "do what I do on a regular basis: just come out here and grind like I did when I was playing with him." Mauldin, who spent most of his youth in the foster care system, found football in high school and it led to a scholarship at Louisville and becoming the first person in his family to graduate college. He played defensive end his first three years, and was switched to outside linebacker as a senior under a new coaching staff. Mauldin said he wanted show he can drop into coverage to go along with what he showed in college as a pass rusher, and there's no better remaining opportunity to do that than in Saturday's game.

I_medium Big conference wins by Ohio State, Indiana and Western Kentucky (which is 6-0 in Conference USA and hasn't lost since the U of L game) moved Louisville up two spots to No. 13 in KenPom's rankings ... which is pretty much the best news of the last six days.

I_medium Cincinnati and adidas have parted ways.

I_medium If you're desperate for some late-January Cardinal baseball, your weekend has arrived.

I_medium Shoni Schimmel and Angel McCoughtry will both be back home for the Atlanta Dream Classic.

I_medium U of L swim and dive continues to ball out ... or whatever the swimming and/or diving equivalent of ball out is. Stroke out? Probably not that. We'll work on it.

I_medium Quentin Goodin has narrowed(?) his list to 12, and includes Louisville.

I_medium The U of L student newspaper talks about the thriving Cardinal men's tennis program.

I_medium Louisville commit Sheldon Redwine, who is visiting U of L this weekend, is listed as a player that folks down South believe could be flipped to Auburn.

I_medium This dude at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York knows what's up.

I_medium The Sports Quotient ranks college basketball's top conferences at midseason, and has the ACC at No. 1.

I_medium ESPN answers the same question by saying the ACC and the Big 12 are tied at the top.

I_medium And finally, Notre Dame's missed field goal against Louisville is listed as Blue and Gold Illustrated's No. 10 play of the season for the Fighting Irish.
