The experts are unanimously picking Louisville over North Carolina in the championship game. Dana O’Neil, a college basketball writer for, has two Cardinals listed as players to watch in the tournament: Russ Smith and Chris Jones. The full article can be see here.

It is always good to see Louisville in the ESPN spotlight like they have been this sports season. Luke Hancock and Montrezl Harrell have been out representing our country in their respected age divisions. It is great to see them out and playing well. Hopefully that will transfer into the college basketball season.
