—First things first, there’s no one missing, which is good news.
—Anas Mahmoud is never going to be a bulky guy, but he’s down to 215 from 220, which isn’t exactly great news.
—At 6-10, 250-pounds, UConn transfer Steven Enoch will give the Cards some needed size when he becomes eligible in 2018.
–Newcomer Jordan Nwora is down at least five pounds to 215. He was listed anywhere from 220-to-225 while in high school. Pitino mentioned that getting in shape would be important for Nwora if he wants to contribute early.
—I can’t remember the last time the Louisville roster had guys wearing jersey numbers 0-through-5. Also, it seems unusual to see the highest number on the roster being 33.
