Wayne Blackshear was a huge name coming out of high school. He was Mr. Basketball in the state of Illinois (beating out Anthony Davis), a McDonald’s All-American, and a list of other accolades. Injuries, starting during the McD’s game, have certainly hindered Blackshear’s production at UofL leading up to this season. All signs pointing to Wayne being healthy coming into this season, and fans were excited to see what he could do at 100%. This season it hasn’t been injuries that has held Blackshear back, it’s been foul trouble. When he is on the court, he can ball. Problem is, he hasn’t been on the court much due to early (and often) foul trouble. Pitino decided to bring Wayne off the bench tonight against Houston, and he responded with a career night. Here’s to hoping Blackshear can build off of his performance tonight, and continue the solid play.
