Louisville beats Bellarmine but the game is secondary

11/09/2014 04:43 PM

Louisville beat Bellarmine 82-57 in an exhibition game, but to many the score was secondary. The star of the afternoon was 15 year old Patrick McSweeney. The Saint X student, who has been a member of the Knights since last season, dressed out for the game, and scored the first basket for Bellarmine. McSweeney has been battling leukemia since he was diagnosed in 2004. In fact he and his family are on their way to Philadelphia for medical treatment.

McSweeney actually missed his first attempt, a jump shot, but on Bellarmine’s next possession, he made a basket to the roars of the enitre YUM Center.

After the game, McSweeney had plenty to say about his entire experience on and off the court.
