Here’s that dagger Luke Hancock, the sophomore guard transferring to the University of Louisville from George Mason, drove through the heart of Villanova during the second round of the NCAA basketball tournament.

As only the Gus Johnson could call it.

  1. I think Luke is being blown up all out of proportion. Yes he did hit a beautiful shot in the NCAA tournament, which I maintain will be his most memorable shot when he looks back on his college career. Three point shooter? Will he be a staple a CRP’s offense? Luke was fifth (5th) on his team in 3-pt %, a whopping 36%. Just because he hit one against Villanova does not make him a great 3 point shooter as witnessed by his 3-pt percentage. In addition, lets not forget he played against mid-major competition in the Colonial League. Note also he was third in points scored per game. And at this point in time he is no Kyle Kurick (3-pt percentage 56%). If he develops in Rick’s system and is able to spell a starter effectively then great. But I for one take his transfer potential with a grain of salt at this point.

  2. Sorry James, Kuric only shot 45% from 3pt last year. And Hancock is not a 3pt specialist. He drives to the hoop and shot 49.4% from the field and 81% from the foul line. But his real specialty is that he averaged 4.3 assists from the swing position.
    And Drexel, who beat Louisville,was from the Colonial, as is GMU who beat Villanova
