Does it bother anyone else that, with some recent recruiting trends, that Syracuse has a contract with Nike shoes and Louisville is an Adidas school?
Fab Melo allegedly making his choice between the University of Louisville and Syracuse University today on where he will play his college basketball.
The brand of shoes should be the least possible factor but, until Adidas decides to compete seriously, it is apparently a huge consideration for some teens, especially with Nike’s financial ties with some National Basketball Association players.

Parts of the U of L campus flooded with six to seven inches of rain, viaducts flooded, campus closed. One question is whether Jerry Smith made to the basketball practice facility or not.
He tells teammate Peyton Siva in one Twitter message:Â “Stuck in the gym 8 inches of rain.. streets flooded.. what better place than stuck in the gym –> n I’m stuck n my room SMH!”
But in the next tweet, he says: “Hey gotta do something bout this flood water. I gotta get n the gym asap… Don’t think swimmin n rain water worth it tho. Or is it? Lol.”
His heart’s in the right place, wherever he is.
