UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Cardinal Freshman Used to Battling On and Off the Court

10/13/2016 07:08 PM

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.

“Throughout my high school, I was able to find a couple different kinds of medications that really calmed it down,” said Sharpe.

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