MEN'S COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Cardinals looking to pull off repeat this season

Pitino classifies Louisville’s recent run as ‘Mini Dynasty’

(Continued)

LOUISVILLE — NEWCOMERS

Among the newcomers to the Cardinals roster this season will be:

• Chris Jones: A 5-foot-10 junior guard who was last season’s junior college Player of the Year at Northwest Florida State College where he averaged 21.8 points per game.

• Terry Rozier: A 6-1 freshman guard who had signed with Louisville before last season, but attended Hargrave Military Academy. Rozier has impressed fans during the early-season scrimmages and exhibitions with his shooting and rebounding ability. Last season, he scored a school-record 69 points in one game and had another 50-point game.

• Anton Gill: A 6-4 freshman guard who was a teammate of Rozier last season at Hargrave. Had what was then a school-record 56-point game plus another 50-point game.

• Akoy Agau: a 6-8 freshman forward from Omaha, Neb., where he won four straight Class A championships. Could be looked upon early in the season with the absence of Behanan.

WALK-ONS

Rounding out the roster are two walk-ons — guards Dillion Avare from Lexington, Ky., and David Levitch from Goshen, Ky.

“We don’t just keep our championship trophy with us,” Pitino said. “It’s your trophy. It’s everybody who supports our basketball team. There have been three in the history of the University of Louisville, and I’ve never seen a fan base so happy a championship since I’ve been a coach. And the reason being is, it’s yours.”
