The Cards will play four total games while in the Bahamas and WHAS-TV in Louisville will televise two of the games. The two televised games will be (the second and third games of the trip) on Thursday August 11th vs. the Commonwealth Giants and on Friday August 12th vs. the Real Deal Shockers, with the pre-game beginning at 7:00PM and the tip-off scheduled for 7:30PM (for both nights).
The first of the four Cards games will be an intra-squad scrimmage on Wednesday August 10th at 7:30PM and will not be available locally either through radio or television. The fourth game is on Saturday August 13th at 6:00PM and will be available for your listening pleasure on WHAS-radio through Cardinal Sports Network (the two televised games on the 11th and 12th will also be available on WHAS-radio).
I know Pitino is mostly excited about all the extra practice time he gets to have with the team, but as a fan what do we have to look forward to with these games in the Bahamas? Will we get to see Chane Behanan, Angel Nunez, Zach Price or Kevin Ware on the floor for the first time?
I am looking forward to seeing how Dieng looks with his added weight and another year of basketball under his belt. Also interested to see if guys like Marra and Russ Smith are ready to take that next step and really compete for playing time this season!
