It keeps getting worse for Louisville. Junior forward Rakeem Buckles torn an ACL in his left knee in the first half against Marquette yesterday. Buckles will miss the remainder of this season and all of next season after his second career knee injury. Buckles tore the ACL in his right knee last year and was just getting back to speed.
We love to laugh at Louisville’s failures, but nothing is funny about someone going down to a serious injury. Even though he is a rival Cardinal, Rakeem Buckles is a kid trying to live his dream and this could very well be a career-ender.
