Walk-on guard Kardok in early for Bulls



Proof that Stan Heath isn't afraid to mix things up a bit with his lineup -- the second sub in off the bench tonight is guard Ryan Kardok, a walk-on who made the team just before the season started.

Kardok -- who got a rebound in his first minute in the game -- was the first guard in, ahead of scholarship freshmen Justin Leemow and Gaby Belardo. Heath had told me the only injured player was center Alex Rivas Sanchez, so he's definitely sending a message to the freshmen with this move. Kardok joined the Bulls after two seasons at Broward Community College.
