Josh Stowers blasted a pair of home runs, including a game-winning three-run shot in the 8th inning, to lift Louisville to a 10-7 win over Notre Dame Sunday afternoon at Jim Patterson Stadium. The six RBI on the day were a career high for Stowers, who is playing the best baseball of his career at the perfect time.

Six RBIs and the game-winner homer?!

— ACC Digital Network (@theACCDN) May 19, 2018

Stowers has reached base safely in 39 straight games and has hit safely in his last nine. Over Louisville’s last 28 games, Stowers is hitting .417 with five home runs, 31 RBI and 20 stolen bases.

U of L’s weekend sweep of the Irish puts the Cards’ final ACC record at 18-12, good enough to earn them the No. 5 seed at next week’s conference tournament. Sunday’s win also guaranteed Dan McDonnell of yet another 40-win season.

Cards and Ravens already coming together.

—Louisville clinched a win in its final series of the regular season with a 5-0 victory over Notre Dame Friday afternoon. The Cards and Irish are back at it tomorrow afternoon at 1.

—In an era where it seems like nothing seems to be shocking, Terry Rozier is a nice reminder that pleasant surprises can still exist in sports.

—Eric Crawford has a good column on Rick Pitino that included this haunting addendum.

Some have suggested that statement is untrue, because weeks earlier Pitino had sent Gatto a text noting that another adidas employee was helping connect Langford with UCLA, and Pitino hoped adidas wouldn’t do anything to hurt Louisville. Note – Pitino didn’t ask for any help from adidas with Langford (at least not in this text message), he only said he didn’t want to be hurt by adidas.

(Why would he do such a thing? Well, adidas had hurt Louisville before, coming through with a lucrative endorsement offer that swayed Louisville signee Sebastian Telfair to go to the NBA instead of coming to college years before. Losing Telfair, incidentally, kept Pitino in the market for a point guard, a spot he filled a year later with the addition of a California recruit named Andre McGee, but I digress.)

I had sort of forgiven Telfair for costing us Rajon Rondo because he (or at least his documentary) wound up getting us Terry Rozier. This tips the scales firmly back to the “we should despise Sebastial Telfair” side.

—Ray Spalding continues to help himself at the combine.

—Google’s leaked “thought experiment” is incredibly creepy.

—Brian Bowen doesn’t seem to be ready for the NBA, but he also hasn’t been cleared by the NCAA, leaving the former Louisville recruit in no-man’s land.

Brian Bowen II, the former Louisville recruit at the heart of the federal basketball investigation, played his first competitive game in nearly a year. And it just happened to be a job audition in front of hundreds of NBA scouts and executives.

To be blunt, it didn’t go well. Bowen missed both his shots in his opening game, turned the ball over five times and looked like the most overwhelmed player on the floor.

“He’s in no man’s land,” said a veteran NBA scout who watched Bowen struggle on Thursday. “He may not be good enough to play in the G League right now.”

And that puts Bowen in a precarious predicament with the deadline to withdraw from the NBA draft coming on May 30. Does Bowen enter to compete for a spot in a league he’s clearly not ready to play in? Or does he return to school (he transferred to South Carolina) and attempt to gain eligibility via an organization (the NCAA) that’s given him no indication that’s a viable option.

“This is my career on the line, honestly,” Bowen said on Thursday.

—Bowen continues to have nothing but glowing things to say about Louisville and the university.

#BrianBowen on #Louisville. “It was good,” he said minutes after playing a five-on-five game alongside former Louisville teammate Ray Spalding. “That’s the school I committed to. I loved the school, I loved the fans, I loved my teammates there. Those are great people.”

—A 93-year-old man who wrapped up 65 years of golfing with his first hole-in-one, says ‘the Lord knew’ it was his last round.

—Shoutout to Lou City for advancing in the U.S. Open Cup with a 5-0 win over the Long Island Rough Riders.

—Beloved former Kentucky player Bret Bearup died suddenly yesterday at the age of 56. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

—Corey Ray has now hit a home run in three straight games.

—Not bad.

Included in that group is the home opener.

At least five Louisville football games will be played under the lights in 2018. Included in that group is the home-opener against Indiana State, the first game set to be played inside the freshly expanded Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

Here are the kickoff times and the TV designations that we know so far for the 2018 slate:

Sept. 1 vs. Alabama (in Orlando)

8 p.m. kick on ABC

Sept. 8 vs. Indiana State

7 p.m. kick on ACC Network

Sept. 15 vs. Western Kentucky

7:30 p.m. kick on ACC Network

Oct. 5 vs. Georgia Tech (Friday)

7 p.m. kick on ESPN

Nov. 9 vs. Syracuse (Friday)

7 p.m. kick on ESPN2

Expectations for on-field performance may be slightly down, but I’ve never expected more from a tailgating season.

As expected, the man got paid.

The University of Louisville Board of Trustees and the school’s athletic association board have approved a multi-million dollar settlement with former athletic director Tom Jurich in the dispute revolving around his termination last fall.

In all, Jurich will receive a whopping $7.17 million in cash plus many benefits.

“Everyone is pleased that this matter has been successfully resolved,” said U of L Board of Trustees Chairman David Grissom. “All parties can move forward to begin the next chapter.”

“I have spent the better part of my career working with a dedicated team of athletes, coaches and staff to elevate the University of Louisville’s Athletic Department and I am proud of what we accomplished, which is well documented,” said Jurich.

Here are the key items Jurich will receive from the settlement:

—A core settlement payment of $4.5 million.

—No less than $911,000 from Jurich’s Deferred Compensation Plan and another $1.76 million to be paid out over the next eight years.

—Medical coverage from U of L for both Jurich and his wife.

—Seat licenses for eight club tickets and two parking passes for Louisville football and basketball games for 20 years.

—The scathing letter that former interim president Greg Postel wrote in which Jurich was referred to as a “bully” has been stricken from the record.

Whether U of L did the right thing in “cleaning house” and firing Jurich is inconsequential here. The fact of the matter is they completely botched the process at every step of the way, and have probably known for a while that at some point they were going to have to pay for it. Today was that some point. It should have been a lot sooner.

If this had been done seven months ago it could have shielded all of us from a considerable amount of nastiness and embarrassment.

I’m glad this is over, I’m glad we can finally start moving, and I’m glad that the foundation has been set for U of L (at some point) to properly embrace Jurich and all that was accomplished over the past two decades.

One down, two to go.

The Louisville baseball team kicked off its final series of the regular season in style.

Freshman Zach Britton singled with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Cardinals to a 5-4 win over Notre Dame Thursday night at Jim Patterson Stadium. Britton entered the evening hitting just .238 for the season, but has now hit safely in four of his last five appearances.

The victory moved U of L to 16-12 in ACC play, and guaranteed that Dan McDonnell’s club will finish with a winning record in the conference.

Logan Wyatt drove in three of Louisville’s other four runs, including a pair with a towering home run in the home half of the third inning.

It was another terrific night at the plate for Josh Stowers, who finished 3-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base. Jake Snider and Devin Mann finished the evening with two hits apiece.

Adam Wolf was terrific on the hill, but unfortunately came away with nothing to show for it. The Cardinal ace worked seven innings and allowed just two hits and one earned run while striking out eight. A rough eighth inning for the Louisville bullpen robbed Wolf of his seventh win of the season. Instead, the W went to Austin Conway (3-1), who allowed no hits and no runs while striking out three over an inning and a third.

Louisville (38-16) and Notre Dame (24-26, 12-16) will go at it again Friday night at 6.

Xavier’s all-time winningest player is headed to U of L.

Chris Mack announced Thursday that he has added former Xavier standout Jason Love to his Louisville basketball staff as a graduate assistant.

Happy to have this guy on our first staff at Louisville. Jason Love will be a GA after retiring from professional basketball. Self made, great example to our players of daily work ethic. XU’s all time winningest player. pic.twitter.com/IsYCFLpK6x

— Chris Mack (@CoachChrisMack) May 17, 2018

Love played at Xavier from 2006-2010, helping the Musketeers make four NCAA tournament appearances, three trips to the Sweet 16, and one trip to the Elite Eight. He graduated in 2010 as the program’s all-time winningest player with 108 victories under his belt. As a senior, he ranked fourth in the Atlantic 10 in rebounding at 8.7 boards per game.

After graduation, Love spent seven seasons playing professional basketball abroad. Most recently, he played for the Unión de Santa Fe club in Argentina before announcing his retirement from basketball.

Welcome aboard, Jason.

TUMBLING: LOUISVILLE CARDINALS

Don’t expect a huge drop off for the Cardinals in the post-Lamar Jackson era. Bobby Petrino is far too talented a coach for that. But it’s going to be difficult in 2018. No player did more for a team than Jackson the last two years. Both an above average quarterback and a dynamic rusher, Jackson commanded more attention from defenses than any player in the country. That’s impossible to replicate, even if there’s plenty of belief in his successor Jawon Pass.

The Cardinals are also returning an ACC-low 46 percent of their total experience, per SB Nation, which never helps. Schedule assistance isn’t available either. Not only does Louisville open with Alabama, it still has to face its usual inter-division lineup of Clemson and Florida State.

—Long time SEC commissioner Mike Slive passed away on Wednesday. Dan Wetzel writes about how Slive made the conference a force by staying true to himself.

—This seems weird, but Quin Snyder is killing it in the NBA so I’m not going to judge.

Ohiobasketball.com rolls out the red carpet for the future stars of basketball. It’s the “Battle of the Greatest” Amateur Athletic Union, (AAU) tournament held in Louisville, KY May 26th through the 28th at the Kentucky Expo Center, 911 Phillips Lane. The tournament is for boys and girls in grades 4ththrough 11th. Nationally ranked players and teams will travel to Louisville to participate under one roof with 20 courts.

Recruiters and teams will all have their eye on Team Breakdown based out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. All nine players have been offered Division 1 offers to play basketball at the collegiate level. Son of University of Kentucky and NBA star Jamal Mashburn Jr. plays on this squad and will be in Louisville for the tournament.

Coach Kenny Gillion says “Mashburn has offers from Louisville, Harvard and Florida State University” just to name a few of the schools recruiting the point guard. Gillion goes on to say that he’s proud of his whole team with the opportunity to further their education through basketball. This is a family affair because Gillion’s wife Diana is in charge of the Showtime Ballers. They will also play in the Louisville tournament.

Richard Ballard, Toney Frank and several other Louisville entrepreneurs joined the team to bring the tournament to Louisville. They put the event at one location and packed it with activities that they whole family can enjoy. There will be an inflatable zone for basketball’s youngest fans. There will be a Paw Patrol and PJ Mask Day along with contests, giveaways, and selfies with your favorite character.

—The last two nights, former Cardinal star Corey Ray has gone 5-for-10 with three home runs for the Biloxi Shuckers.

We is smart.

From U of L:

Five University of Louisville athletics teams are among the nation’s leaders within their sports in the most recent multiyear Academic Progress Rate (APR) data, the NCAA released on Wednesday.

UofL’s men’s and women’s basketball, women’s cross country, and men’s and women’s golf are among the top-10 percent in their respective sports in the latest APR, which measures academic eligibility, retention, and graduation for student-athletes.

It is the sixth-straight year that the Cardinals’ men’s basketball team has received public recognition through the NCAA Academic Performance Program. Louisville is one of just nine schools in the nation, including only three from Power 5 conferences, which has earned the recognition each of the last six years. Five men’s basketball players -- Deng Adel, V.J. King, Jordan Nwora, Darius Perry and Ray Spalding -- were named to the 2018 All-ACC Academic Team and a league-best 25 Cardinals have earned that recognition over the last four years. The men’s basketball team has produced a combined GPA above 3.0 for 19 of the last 20 semesters, with nine of 14 student-athletes earning a 3.0 or better GPA in the 2017 fall semester

Women’s basketball student-athletes Arica Carter, Sam Fuehring and Jazmine Jones were honored on the 2018 ACC All-Academic Team. Nine of the 12 team members were above a 3.0 GPA for the 2018 spring semester, the eighth straight the Cardinals achieved a combined GPA above 3.0. Their collective 3.472 GPA in the spring was the highest ever for a spring semester and the second-best GPA overall for the Cardinals, who reached the 2018 Final Four. Their collective 3.433 GPA for the 2017-18 academic year was the highest in the last 11 years.

The women’s cross country team is earning the honor for the second-consecutive season. The Cardinals, who compiled a remarkable 3.92 GPA in the spring, had 10 student-athletes attain a 4.0 GPA that term for Dean’s Scholar honors. Mia Ross, part of that collective group, earned all-ACC Academic Cross Country Team honors. Over the course of the 2017-18 academic year, Louisville achieved a 3.77 cumulative GPA.

The men’s golf team posted a 3.37 team GPA for the UofL 2017 fall semester, with eight of nine players named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Last year, Erik Dulik and J.D. Lehman were named to the Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars squad by the GCAA, where the team was honored as a Golf Coaches Association All-Academic Team for the second-straight year. UofL was one of 39 schools to earn the President’s Special Recognition Status for a men’s golf team above a 3.5 GPA.

The women’s golf team is earning the honor for the eighth-consecutive year. Notably, Louisville is one of only two women’s golf programs in the ACC to earn the Public Recognition Award each year since 2009-10.

Under the watch of head coach Courtney Trimble, the Cardinals capped the spring with a collective 3.544 GPA, the 15th-consecutive semester attaining at least a 3.4 as a team. Molly Skapik, one of seven student-athletes receiving Dean’s List accolades in the spring, graduated with her bachelor’s degree in accounting and received her diploma during Louisville’s spring commencement in May.

Multiyear APRs for the most-recent single-year figures from 2016-17 for all Division I sports teams will be released on May 23.
