Jeremy Hazell Beckons Louisville

Don’t Look Now

The one face a University of Louisville basketball fan doesn’t want to see when things are going weird is that of Jeremy Hazell. The Seton Hall guard seemingly can hit three-point shots from 60 feet, backwards on a dead run and with his eyes closed, especially against Louisville and especially on his home court.

Hazell hit nine three-pointers while collecting 29 points in a 10-point shocker over Louisville at Seton Hall two seasons ago. He is still only a junior, hitting 55 of 169 three-point attempts thus far this season, and averaging 22 points per game. Louisville, Seton Hall and Hazell are back at it in New York Thursday at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

    Jeremy Hazell has been our worst nightmare in the past, and he will be sky high for this game, pulling shots out of his behind. The only think we can hope for is that he doesn’t get going. If he does, it’s going to be a long night.

    Hazell has crazy range and will get his points – the key is making him take a lot shot to get them, because lord knows he will hoist up as many as humanly possible.

    The Hazell Hex worked — Pitino looked more grey in the temples than usual. That is how the game looked to me.
    The Card team is just disconbobulated…
