There was some good ol’ fashioned trash talk at the Kentucky Derby Festival Classic over the weekend that went unnoticed and needs to be addressed.
Apparently, one of Rick Pitino’s future Cardinals, someone named Darius Perry, explained why he picked Louisville over other schools. Perry citied Pitino’s player development as the deciding factor (LOL) and then took a shot at Isaiah Briscoe, saying, “Briscoe couldn’t shoot when he got to Kentucky… and he still can’t shoot.”
Darius Perry says player dev. separated UofL from other schools. "Briscoe couldn't shoot when he got to Kentucky..and he still can't shoot."

Hear it for yourself at the 33:45 mark:
Someone should remind Perry he did not pick Louisville over Kentucky because Kentucky did not show him any interest. He had offers from Georgia, Minnesota, Wake Forest, Xavier and Texas A&M, therefore he chose Louisville over those schools. To say Briscoe’s shot development is the reason he went to Louisville is laughable.
Learn your own recruitment, bud. Cal didn’t want you.
