O'Bannon, a Louisville native who came to the program from Male High School, has surpassed nearly everyone's expectations. As a senior, O'Bannon has scored in double-figures 24 times, which is more than any other member of the team. He scored a career-high 30 points in the 99-52 blowout win over Marquette and is now just 41 points shy of joining the program's 1,000 point club.
A native of Roseau, Dominica, Otis George came to Louisville via the Berkshire School in Homestead, Florida. One of the hardest working members of the team, who never saw a loose ball he didn't like, George has scored 375 points, grabbed 341 rebounds and totaled 50 blocks in his career to date.
Ellis Myles, who is in his fifth year after receiving a medical redshirt season to recover from a ruptured patellar tendon late in the 2002-03 season, became a new person when Rick Pitino arrived. He improved his work ethic and attitude, as well as his talent. The Compton, California native has had 38 career double-digit rebounding outings, including 16 this season. With 53 more points, Myles will join the Cardinals 1,000 point club.
