UofL BASKETBALL | Are the Cards a 25 win team?

10/22/2017 03:55 PM

The University of Louisville basketball program was flipped upside down last week. Former coach Rick Pitino was officially fired, and the interim coach David Padgett rounded out his coaching staff.

The two most recent hires were R.J. Evans, who was promoted internally to acting assistant coach, and former Duke basketball star Greg Paulus was hired as an assistant on Thursday. Those two joined Trent Johnson, a 30-year coaching veteran, and Padgett to round out the staff for the coming season.

Mark Ennis from ESPN Louisville joined Lyndsey Gough to discuss what to expect from those coaches this season:

The coaching staff will definitely be crucial in getting the most out of a very talented U of L roster. Vegas oddsmakers still consider Louisville a national champion contender. Bovada has Louisville as the 8th best odds to win the NCAA tournament, giving them 25-to-1 odds.

That run to the NCAA tournament starts in a little over three weeks.
In fact, Louisville starts exhibition play in ten days when it plays Kentucky Weslyan on October 30th.
