Deng Adel pulls out, returns to Louisville for junior year

Unlike the 2013 National Championship banner, Deng Adel will be in the KFC Yum! Center when Louisville plays its home basketball games next season. The sophomore forward announced today that he will return for a third season with the Cardinals after testing the NBA waters this spring, to no avail.

Last season Adel averaged 12.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 30 minutes per game. He will be one of the centerpieces of Rick Pitino’s team next spring, especially with the early departures of Jaylen Johnson and Donovan Mitchell.

On a personal note, I really like that “Hello” song he does. “When We Were Young” is another big hit of his. He is very talented.

      Only way it would have been better is if he had dribbled off his leg.

      Han – With that title there should have been a Katina Powell reference to follow it.

    Funny, they think they are now a contender. A guy who will be a junior, couldn’t make the combine much less get drafted, I’d their center piece. They will start anus, that right there takes them to a bubble team. Plus Ricky won’t even be coaching the whole season. I’d say contenders for the NIT

      They’ll have mostly the same team as the one that didn’t make it past the first weekend last year, U of Littlebrother fans have to be the most delusional college fan base in the country

      Same team minus three of their best players. Mitchel was leading scorer and go to guy, Mathiang was their only real offensive threat and rebounder inside and Johnson was the other big body who could rebound. They literally are going to have to play anus the whole game. They don’t have a single impact freshman. They see a title, I see a bubble team. If Ricky doesn’t get suspended for 9-15 games, they may be an 8-9 type team. Suspended and they are NIT

    Lets not throw too much shade we didn’t win our head to head this season.

      Yep. They’re going to be pretty good and will probably get us again.

      lol they aren’t winning in Rupp.

      They will have some good experience returning at guard, and King might grow into a pretty decent player – he is a burger boy, and Rick will be forced to actually play him this year. Title contender? I don’t think so. But they will be a solid top-25 team.

      Don’t lol too soon, Booby. We have zero experience among the potential team leaders (I can’t see Wenyen’s experience carrying this team), and this game is fairly early in the year. BTW, how long has it been since we lost in Rupp? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think we lost twice at home last year with a better, more experienced team. So, don’t act like it’s unheard of.

    Another fine example of a 3 paragraph “article” from the classless ksr folks. I thought ky fans were supposed to know basketball…Ppl commenting that this is a bubble team LOL. Delusions are running deep in big baby nation I see. Can’t wait to see All you DBag Ky fans reaction when the 13′ banner is still hanging next year, and UofL is at the top of the ACC
