Nothing But Net: The Louisville Cardinals’ Boom Effect

“I thought we had a chance there, and then boom. That’s what they do to teams. They can boom you. My vocabulary isn’t very good, but I hope you understand what I mean. It’s a positive thing for them…” — Duke Coach Mike  Krzyzewski, March 31, 2013

“The Boom Effect” has become part of the basketball lexicon in the 2013-2014 NCAA basketball season. Originally coined by Coach K, after U of L “boomed” Duke to advance to the Final Four, the term has been used by Rick Pitino and Stephan VanTreese to describe the Cards’ style of play, and mentioned often by broadcasters, from Bob Valvano to Jay Bilas. What is the “boom effect”? Matt and Mark break it down for you on the next Nothing But Net.

We’ll also look at Stripes in this season’s games, and how they can, and in some cases are, having a definite effect on a game’s outcome. Join us for Nothing But Net. The sports report that swings.

Hear last week’s Nothing But Net here.
