We are Cards fans, and that 2013 National Championship was a beauty.
“A group of former University of Louisville basketball players is planning to file a lawsuit against the NCAA in response to the penalties that cost the program its 2013 national championship.
Luke Hancock, who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2013 NCAA Final Four, confirmed that the ex-U of L players will file the suit Wednesday and provide more details with their attorneys at an 11 a.m. press conference at the Galt House Hotel.
Hancock also sought to distinguish the planned litigation from another fan-led effort that has raised questions about legal standing, or proof that they were harmed by the penalties handed down by college basketball’s governing body.
Referring to the penalties, Hancock said: “We live it every day.” “We definitely feel that we have standing, and we’re excited with the team we’ve put together to try and do something,” he said.
