Wednesday night was Tyler Sharpe’s first night playing in front of Louisville fans as a member of the Cardinals.

“It was a great experience,” said Sharpe.

The freshman guard has always made basketball look easy, despite suffering from Crohn’s Disease.

He says having Crohn’s forced him to improve his work ethic, on and off the court.
