🏀So this is just something I’ve been thinking about lately. If there were four non-conference games that we could play each year in basketball, which teams would you want to play? We always schedule the beloved Battle of the Bluegrass-UK vs UL, but what other games would YOU like to see each year?
Here’s mine: Memphis, Indiana, Cincinnati and West Virginia.
Memphis- Louisville and Memphis are long time rivals and I think with the emergence of Penny Hardaway as coach, it would be amazing to play him and his team each year.
Indiana- Two all time Powerhouse Programs competing head to head?! Yes please! This matchup would be especially cool because of the general location of the schools, with Louisville being right on the boarder if Kentucky and Indiana, this would make the game that much more interesting!
Cincinnati- Another old rival, Cincy vs Louisville has produced some great games in college basketball. This was always a game that did NOT disappoint and it’s always a treat to play them nowadays!
West Virginia- I’ll always remember the 2005 elite eight game vs WVU that went into OT, which Louisville won in a thriller! That was one of my favorite games of all time and is one of my earliest memories! I’d give anything to see more games like that!
Of course these scenarios are all dream games, but I think the fans would love to see any of these games be scheduled annually. What games would you add?
@k1 my birthday present! A beautiful friend of mine captured this moment from Florida when you blessed me with the photo! Here is the oil painting done by Deborah Melvin Beisner #coachdeenamcd Kyler, you were a beautiful gentleman when I ask for the selfie. I giggled when you told me to "come on Mama" and then shot me the grin. May the Lord bless your career and keep you healthy. #boomersooner#kylermurray#heisman
