Louisville came into Saturday looking to bounce back from the devastating loss against Duke. The Cards managed to do just that, coming away with a 56-55 win. It was not a pretty win and there is still plenty of areas to improve, but they found a way to win the game against a desperate team.
Louisville was led in scoring by Christen Cunningham, who had 18 points. Jordan Nwora scored 11 and came up with a block to save the game within the final seconds. The Cards only shot 35% for the game and got out-rebounded. Clemson had more points in the paint and more 2nd chance points, but their 19 turnovers allowed Louisville to walk away with a win.
Louisville will travel to Syracuse on Wednesday and will return to the YUM! Center next Saturday to take on Virginia.
