UofL BASKETBALL | Future Cards Looking Forward to Playing Together at Louisville

04/16/2017 05:48 PM

Four future Louisville men’s basketball players were on the same team during Saturday night’s Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic.

The four of them each contributed quite a bit to the “Thunder Team,” despite the “Thunder Team” falling to the “Lightning Team” 122-109.

Guard Darius Perry led the future Cards with 22 points in the contest.

Meanwhile, Jordan Nwora finished with seven points, Lance Thomas scored five points and Malik Williams ended up with three points.

After the game, Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff caught up with the quartet of Cards to see what this weekend was like playing with their future teammates:
