Kevin Yoder (R) tweeted Thursday that the visa had been approved for Udoka's mother Florence. "It will be worth it". Azuonuwu lives in Delta, Nigeria, and has never seen her son play basketball. But is that what college basketball is for? Their school hadn't even made the tournament since Patrick Ewing's Hoyas knocked them out in the 1985 Sweet 16. I want them to embrace it.

The guards have combined for a quarter of Louisville's assists in the tournament and have been instrumental in setting Hines-Allen, Durr and the rest of the team up for some pretty big shots and plays.
