Despite trailing early in the first half, the Cardinals quickly came alive and controlled the remainder of the game. Louisville led by as many as 23 points in the 2nd half, en route to a 10-point victory over Boston College.
As mentioned above, Louisville led by 23 points with about 9 minutes to go. The Golden Eagles made one last run at the Cards, but Louisville withstood the run and pulled away again to win by 10. The Cards improved to 3-1 in the ACC.
Louisville was led by Jordan Nwora’s career night. Nwora finished with a career-high 32 points (12-16 FG, 5-9 3PT) and 10 rebounds. The first 30-point game by a Cardinal since Russ Smith in 2014 at SMU.
Dwayne Sutton was the only other Cardinal in double figures. He finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds, which gave him another double-double to add to his streak. Christen Cunningham also had a great game. He finished with 9 points and 8 assists.
I really hope Ryan McMahon’s ankle injury wasn’t bad. Prayers going his way for good news and a quick recovery.
Up next: Louisville travels to Georgia Tech to take on the Yellow Jackets on Saturday at 4pm.
