We’re officially living in a post-Memorial Day world so what better place to take the CC Summer Tour than ... Alaska.

—Despite a disappointing Game 7 performance, Terry Rozier proved a considerable amount during his short time as a starter for the Celtics this season. Even so, Rozier knows Kyrie Irving will be the team’s starting point guard in 2018-19.

—There’s a lot of buzz about mutual interest between Louisville and four-star PG Jordan Lathon, who is back on the market after having his admission to Northwestern revoked over the weekend. The issue for Chris Mack is going to be finding out exactly what happened with Lathon and Northwestern and then determining whether or not it’s worth U of L potentially taking another perception hit. Lathon has already received a ton of scholarship offers, but none of those schools are in the same type of position Louisville is.

—It’s almost fully renovated PJCS time.

—Lorenzo Mauldin chronicles (TM) his long, lonely and surreal road to recovery.

—Great Memorial Day read from Eric Crawford.

—Chris Mack is looking for “competitors and tough guys.”

—There are less than 25 spots available for Ken Lolla’s U of L soccer summer camps.

—Few MLB prospects have had a better last month than Josh Stowers.

—I would expect Josh to claim the record for himself Friday night.

—Teddy Bridgewater has been impressive enough during his short time with the Jets that he’s altering the entire quarterback dynamic in New York. He’s also got his old No. 5 back.

—The Kentucky Derby Museum has received a $1 million expansion grant.

—Josh Rogers back in the Ville tonight.

—Dan McDonnell needed some young players to step up if Louisville wanted to build on its bourgeoning tradition. Those players have answered the call.

This story about Don Nelson smoking weed and watching Warriors games with Chris Webber is delightful.

—Gorgui remains the best.

—Three-star offensive lineman Jamari Williams committed to Louisville on Friday.

—Mississippi State ended yet another U of L season.

—With Rupp Arena’s capacity set to decrease, expect Syracuse and Louisville to be No. 1 and No. 2 in men’s basketball attendance for years to come.

—Shoutout to this legend.

—Four U of L track and field athletes have qualified for the NCAA Championships.

—Jeff Walz’s three class of 2018 signees have all arrived on U of L’s campus.

—For the first time in a long time, Louisville baseball is headed into the NCAA tournament as an underdog.

—And finally, Mangok Mathiang has drawn inspiration from watching what former teammate Terry Rozier did in this year’s playoffs.
