A look at day two of the evaluation period as the Louisville basketball staff was in Orlando and Las Vegas on Wednesday night

Day two of the third - and final evaluation period of the summer for college basketball coaches is over and the University of Louisville staff spent time evaluating in Orlando, Fla., and Las Vegas on Thursday. Check out the prospects the staff was watching:

University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino had a chance to evaluate top center target Malik Williams two more times on Thursday at the AAU Super Showcase in Orlando, Fla., along with assistant coach Mike Balado.

But Pitino also saw a new name on the board for the Cardinals.

Orlando, Fla., shooting guard Chaundee Brown was watched by Pitino one time and then he sent Balado back to check him out again. Brown, who received an Indiana offer last week, is a four-star prospect ranked No. 55 in the 2017 class by Scout.com.

Pitino and Balado are expected to watch the two prospects again on Friday.

Meanwhile, assistant coaches David Padgett and Kenny Johnson spent the day again in Las Vegas.

The marquee game for the U of L coaches figured to be top point guard targets - Makai Ashton-Langford and Darius Perry going at it with Perry's Game Elite team on the short end of a 71-36 loss. Perry had just four points on 1 of 7 from the field.

Ashton-Langford had five points, four assists, three steals and three rebounds the win for Mass Rivals.

Padgett also watched the Louisville Magic 15s team where Trinity sophomore point guard David Johnson and Trinity junior Jay Scrubb put on a show. Johnson was on campus recently and is a top 2019 target for the Cardinals.

The staff saw 2018 standout Romeo Langford of New Albany, Ind., twice. Langford had 20 points on 7 of 13 shooting in a loss to D1 Minnesota, while he had 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals in a win over Game Elite.

Perry had 11 points and five assists on 4 of 12 shooting in the loss to Langford's Eric Gordon All-Stars.

Louisville was also there for a 25-point, 16-rebound performance by Mayan Kiir.
