Help us, help Marques

Former UofL basketball great Marques Maybin was seriously injured over the weekend and doesn't have insurance to cover the medical expenses. ITV will donate all proceeds from Saturday's golf scramble to help pay his expenses and we challenge all Cardinal fans to contribute what they can to help. <p> <b>UPDATE</b> Information on how to help Marques Maybin.

Help us, help Marques.

Due to the tragic news of Marques Maybin's motorcycle accident in Clarksville, TN recently that has left him paralyzed, will use the money raised from this Saturday's golf scramble to help pay Marques' medical bills instead of donating the proceeds to the University of Louisville athletic department.

We will also accept donations at Saturday's golf event on behalf of Marques which will then be given to his family to help pay the expense of his medical bills and we encourage those who can help financially or otherwise to do so in Marques' time of need.

Later today, we'll have further details about how you can help Marques and his family with the medical bills and we ask that all Cardinal fans continue to keep Marques in their prayers.
