According to American Christian (PA) Academy coach Tony Bergeron, his team, which includes Louisville recruit Tyreke Evans, will play in Louisville twice this season.

American Christian will play IMG (FL) Academy Dec. 7 at Louisville Gardens in a game set up by the Gazzell Group; and Feb. 16 against Findley Prep (NV) and UK signee DeAndre Liggins in a game promoted by Game Seven Sports. The American Christian – Findley Prep game will be played at Freedom Hall or Louisville Gardens.

Louisville prospect Jared Swopshire, a 6-7 small forward, attends IMG, who also boasts Florida commit Kenny Kadji, a 6-10, 255-pound center. Bergeron said he believed St. Benedict's (NJ), which is led by 6-9 Louisville commit Samardo Samuels, will also be involved in one of the events.

Asked if anything could be read into American Christian's decision to schedule two games in Louisville regarding Evans' recruitment, Bergon said:

"Nothing at all, because we have more games than that (scheduled) at Villanova. So it says nothing at all."

"Louisville is very strong, as strong as anybody," Bergeron added.

Evans made an official visit to UConn last weekend. He'll visit Texas in October and Memphis in November before making his decision. He may also visit Louisville and Villanova again before deciding.

"I can tell you this about the whole recruiting process," Bergeron said. "This is probably the most accurate way to put it. The family is going to make all their visits which will take them through November. When the family is done, they're going to make a family decision about where he'll attend school based on the following: The place Tyreke feels most comfortable. A place where the coaches will help him improve and get him ready for the next level. And a place that has a need at his position immediately with a nice offense suitable for his game."
