There's a pretty solid Friday doubleheader set up with the Louisville baseball team taking on Wake Forest at 5 and the football team playing its spring game at 7. Admission to both events is free, and it's also dollar beer/dollar soda night at Jim Patterson Stadium.
I really thought heading into this season that Louisville baseball would be the major U of L program most challenged by the move to the ACC. Instead, the Cards are dominating the conference in a way they didn't dominate the Big East or the AAC, and are now the No. 3 team in the country according to Perfect Game. That's the highest ranking in program history.
Dan McDonnell's team is also No. 7 in the RPI, which could wind up being a huge boost in the team's very real quest to earn a national seed in the NCAA Tournament. Some very exciting days lie ahead at Jim Patterson Stadium.

Ray Harper claims he doesn't know who Geno Auriemma is, which, in the extremely unlikely case of that statement being true, says more about Harper than it does Auriemma.
Taylor County star Quentin Goodin tells Scout.com that he'd like to commit before the start of his senior season, and adds that his dad is a Louisville fan.
The U of L women check in at No. 7 in this ESPN way too early top 25 for 2015-16.
Jeff Walz's new foundation has been established with Myisha Hines-Allen and Mariya Moore coming off great rookie seasons. Sprinkle in another outstanding incoming freshman class and the Cardinals will qualify as the best young team in the country.
The Louisville lacrosse team is feeling the pain of the move to the ACC, as the ladies are 9-5 overall but just 1-4 in conference play.

And finally, Russ Smith finally got some extended court time for the Grizzlies Monday night, and responded by scoring 16 points and dishing out 4 assists in just 10 minutes. Smith finished the game +25, and helped the Grizz turn what had been a 32-point deficit to the Warriors into a 111-107 loss. Maybe he should play more.
