Wednesday afternoon Cardinal news and notes

Alison and Milie may have graduated from the UK College of Medicine, but they still made sure that Lexington knows where their loyalties are.

I_medium The postseason starts tonight for Louisville baseball. Here's your preview of the Cards' 7 p.m. ACC Tournament opener against Wake Forest, which you can watch locally on Fox Sports South or listen to on 93.9 The Ville.

I_medium Truth

I_medium The Louisville women will host Maryland in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge on Dec. 1, renewing the Jeff Walz/Brenda Frese rivalry.

I_medium Louisville sophomore shortstop Devin Hairston has earned and accepted an invitation to compete for a roster spot on the 2016 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team. He'll team up with Brendan McKay on that squad.

I_medium Speaking of Hairston, his walk-off against Kentucky kicks off the top five plays of the 2016 ACC baseball season.

I_medium Charles Baldwin, the No. 3 JuCo player in the country and a former 5-star OL recruit, is on U of L's campus today.

I_medium Probably the best thing to come out of the playoffs this year:

I_medium New U of L football signee Linwood Foy has his eyes set on a national championship.

I_medium One of the top tight end recruits in the country is headed to Louisville next month.

I_medium U of L's Christopher Morin-Kougoucheff advanced to the singles semifinals of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) National Men's Open Clay Court Championships last week.

I_medium Athlon ranks Jeff Brohm as the No. 1 coach in Conference USA.

I_medium Visor Teddy?

Visor Teddy.

I_medium Local NBA Draft decisions of note from today so far:

Isaiah Briscoe - Coming back to Kentucky
Marcus Lee - Coming back to college, but transferring
Troy Williams (Indiana) - Staying in the draft
James Blackmon Jr. - Coming back to Indiana
Isaiah Whitehead (Seton Hall) - Staying in the draft

I_medium David Levitch isn't having any of Chinanu's plays for attention.

I_medium Fifty-one years ago today, Muhammad Ali knocked out Sonny Liston.

I_medium I will enjoy this.

I_medium Dan McDonnell and the Louisville baseball team are taking the lessons they've learned from past postseasons with them into this one.

I_medium The Reds are DePaulful, but former Card Adam Duvall just keeps hitting bombs.

I_medium TaDarrius Patterson's high school coach breaks down the newest U of L commit.

I_medium This is the best thing to happen on the internet in 2016, and it's not really close.

Kimmy Schmidt/Kenneth Parcell is running Pastner's social media.

I_medium The folks over at Hammer & Rails respond to the news that Purdue will be facing Louisville at the end of November.

I_medium And finally R&R will be (hopefully) talking about a Chinanu announcement at some point between 3 and 6. If not, the show will just be three hours of me refreshing social media and saying "nothing yet" over and over. Should be great.
