Louisville Head Basketball Coach Rick Pitino returned to his blog on RickPitino.net. Pitino seems very pleased with Ray Spalding, Dwayne Sutton & VJ King and provides some ancedotes on all 3. It’s a quick update and here it is in its entirety:
From the last two weeks I will give you our top 3 performers. Ranking them from 1-5, 5 being the best.
Ray Spalding- Better late than never. The light has really come on with him. He’s working hard and reaching his potential. Spending the time to improve all phases of his game. Jump shot improved and very active at both ends! 5+
Dwayne Sutton- Terrific athlete who plays incredibly hard. His jump shot has much improved and is active at both ends. Great pick-up for our program. This Manual player will give us much needed depth. 5
V.J. King- Has gone from a timid freshman to a physical sophomore. Stronger and now loves contact. Scores with and without the ball. Has to improve his passing but really pleased with his progress. 5-
The other guys all have talent. Their play is not as consistent as the top three, but that is what we strive for in the summer months. We will once again play one of the top schedules in the nation. With our length and athleticism, this should be a fun season for all and recruiting continues to be going well.
I want to give a special congratulation to Arthur Albiero and our swimmers for their recent success in the World Championships in Budapest.
