Spring Day At Belknap


Cardinal Bird rocks at Jim Patterson Stadium as the Cards manhandle Villanova 12-5, their sixth win in the last seven games raising their record to 22-14 and the conference mark to 7-6.


U of L’s John Dao slashes a base hit over the Villanova shortstop, driving in Stewart Ijames and Jeff Arnold in a three-run eighth to put the game out of reach.


Next it’s on to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium for the annual spring football scrimmage.


Parking was at a premium in the Green Lot.


Fans just kept coming, hungry after being deprived of football for the last five months. The crowd was estimated at 17,200.


Somewhere in there is a lighter and faster Brock Bolen, a fullback shredding tacklers.
