Louisville coach Rick Pitino watches New Albany sophomore Romeo Langford score 46 in Indiana semi-state victory

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino and assistant coach Kenny Johnson watched 2018 prospect Romeo Langford of New Albany, Ind., score a school-record 46 points in a Class 4-A semi-state game in Indiana.

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino and assistant coach Kenny Johnson spent Saturday in Richmond, Ind., watching one of the top 2018 prospects in the county - Romeo Langford.

And Langford put on a show.

The New Albany, Ind., sophomore scored a school-record 46 points and added nine rebounds to push the Bulldogs past Southport 82-64 in the Class 4-A Richmond Semi-State.

The 6-foot-4 Langford, who picked up an offer from the Cardinals last month, had 43 with two minutes left in the third quarter and at that point was outscoring Southport 43-42.

Langford attended at least one Louisville game this past season.

New Albany has now won 23 straight games and the Bulldogs are 26-1 with the Class 4-A state title next weekend at Bankers Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
