Louisville Basketball 1000th Win

The win also marks the 1000th all-time victory in the history of Louisville Basketball according to records dating back to the 1925-26 season. It is important to note that Louisville High School did compete in basketball games prior to this season, but records are very incomplete prior to this season. Louisville High School Basketball game programs in the past have started the beginning of all-time records at the 1925-26 season. If anyone has an explanation as to why records in those programs began during this season or has results prior to this season, please email louisvilleleopards.org@gmail.com with information.

 

UP NEXT: The Leopards will next travel to Youngstown to take on the Chaney Cowboys on Friday, January 31. JV will begin at 5:30 PM and Varsity will follow around 7:00 PM.
