YUM CENTER RIMS
--Shouldered much of the blame for the poor shooting inside the Yum Center by the home and visiting teams alike in 2014-15.
--Became the subject of much talk in late January and early February when multiple Louisville basketball players, most notably Terry Rozier, talked about their tightness and unforgiving nature.
--Got its on Twitter account following the controversy.
--Drew complaints from fans of multiple teams, most notably from Kentucky, after poor shooting was again abundant during the games inside the arena in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
--Was already not a fan favorite in Louisville after his recruitment a few years back.
--Was also the main reason for NC State's win that day, lighting up the Cardinals to the tune of 21 points and 4 assists.
--Had this to say when asked about Quentin Snider's rise before the two teams met in the Sweet 16:
I don't think it's going to be a difference. They were a good team with Jones. I think they're still pretty good without him. So their new point guard, he's going to have his hands full ... but I don't get into that. I just go out and play basketball. But one thing they're going to have to do is contain me.
--Barber finished with just 8 points on 3 of 14 shooting and was thoroughly outplayed by Snider in the 75-65 U of L win.
