But it was a pretty exciting game by the end, so we've got that going for us, which is nice.
Louisville 64, Pittsburgh 61 - No Wayne Blackshear (injury) and no Kevin Ware (indefinite suspension) meant Louisville should have struggled, at least a little bit. Yet somehow they led by as many as 12 in the first half on a Tim Henderson three pointer.
Wait, what? This guy?

Ok, it was his only basket of the game, but that dude played 14 minutes in this game.
To Pittsburgh's credit, they cut into that lead, and with just 13 seconds left, Tray Woodall hit a three to bring them down to just a two point deficit. But the Cardinals hit their free throws as Pitt tried to extend the game and the Panthers couldn't get a three pointer to drop until Woodall hit one at the last second to provide the final scoring of the game.
Russ Smith had a game high 20 points for Louisville, while Woodall led Pittsburgh with 14 points.
