There are plenty of reasons to be excited about year two of the Chris Mack era at the University of Louisville. Jordan Nwora’s decision to return for his junior season is likely the biggest factor in Louisville receiving so much hype this preseason.
Last week Nwora was voted ACC preseason Player of the Year and he’s also received quite a few preseason All American honors.
