NCAA in Rupp: Louisville's Montrezl Harrell embraces the pressure

When Louisville's basketball team needs a pick-me-up, the answer is not an energy drink. Most often, it's Montrezl Harrell. It's a role that the 6-foot-8, 235-pound freshman from Tarboro, N.C., embraces. "I just try to get out there, just fly all over the place and cause havoc," Harrell said after Friday's NCAA Regional practice in Rupp Arena. "That's the type of defense we play. So I just try to be all over the court — on the defensive end, on the offensive end. Just try to stay close around the rim and I hope my teammates find me, which they do."
