As if this week hasn’t already been eventful enough, there is now this ...

That’s right, Quinn Slazinski — one of the first players recruited to Louisville by Chris Mack — is headed to Iona to play for former Cardinal head coach Rick Pitino.
The most important thing to note about this move is that we’re all clearly living in a simulation and nothing really matters.
Slazinski started eight games for U of L this past season, and finished his sophomore campaign with averages of 6.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. He was expected to redshirt his first year as a Cardinal, but wound up appearing in 15 games where he scored a total of 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
“The city of Louisville has shown this kid from Houston so much love ever since I committed,” Slazinski said in a statement earlier this month. ”I have appreciated everything and will take a piece of the Ville with me as I continue my college basketball career. I have decided it’s best for my career to enter the transfer portal.”
Louisville fans have been talking constantly for a couple years now about every Cardinal who was recruited by Pitino potentially transferring out to play for him. And the first player to actually do it is one of Chris Mack’s first Louisville recruits. Whatever, I love it. Best of luck to Quinn in the MAAC, and I hope we’re watching him balling out in the tournament next March.
