That slick Rick Pitino at Louisville is living a charmed life, at least in terms of scholarships. From Card Chronicle:
The big news of Tuesday was the Rick Pitino press conference and, in particular, the announcement that Elisha Justice, Chris Smith, and Kyle Kuric would all be playing without a scholarship next season.
Smith, I understand. His brother, J.R. Smith, should be able to afford tuition (though players run out of money when lockouts happen) and Justice came as a walk-on.
Freshmen: Wayne Blackshear/ Chane Behanan/ Angel Nunez/ Zach Price/ Kevin Ware (5)
Sophomores: Gorgui Dieng/ Russ Smith/ Elisha Justice (walk-on)/ Mark Jackson Jr. (walk-on)/ Tim Henderson (walk-on) (5)
Juniors: Peyton Siva/ Rakeem Buckles/ Jared Swopshire/ Stephan Van Treese/ Mike Marra/ Luke Hancock (sitting out per transfer rules) (6)
Seniors: Kyle Kuric (walk-on)/ Chris Smith (walk-on) (2)
Come on. That's 18 players. How is this even allowable?!!!
Or as they say, What up with that?
