Pitino Says Team Is Healthy Heading Into Cincinnati Game

Several University of Louisville men’s basketball players have recovered from injuries, and the team hits the road Wednesday to take on the Cincinnati Bearcats.

The Cardinals have been plagued with injuries since the beginning of the season, with ten players missing games. Coach Rick Pitino says the team is as healthy as it has been all season.

“I really don’t have any worries about this basketball team now that we’re healthy. I was worried about the injuries going into each game because they were so abrupt you know it wasn’t planned for, but now that we’re healthy I don’t have any worries about this basketball team,” says Pitino.

Sophomore forward Rakeem Buckles returned to action last weekend for the first time in six weeks after breaking his finger.

The Cardinals are ranked 16th. Tip-off is 7 pm Wednesday.
