LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Chris Mack expected big changes when he left a school coming off a NCAA Tournament No. 1 seeding for scandal-plagued program with a rich basketball tradition.
Louisville's first-year coach hit the ground running after leaving Xavier, attracting several transfers to supplement the Cardinals' reserve holdovers. Mack's challenge will be melding them into a cohesive rotation he hopes can be competitive.
"We've got a lot to learn, but I've seen a lot of growth in our team over the last two-and-a-half, three weeks," Mack said during Friday's media day. "There's a lot more to come, but the attitude's been great. I think our guys are improving, and their willingness to improve has been really impressive.
