Louisville at Georgia Tech: Postgame Recap

After falling 77-70 on Wednesday to Notre Dame, the No. 9 Cardinals bounced back with a solid road victory over Georgia Tech by a score of 65-50.

It was an ugly game and aside from a late push by the Yellow Jackets, the Cardinals controlled the whole way. Donovan Mitchell led the Cards with 20 points, Quentin Snider had 12 points and 7 assists, Anas Mahmoud chipped in 10 points and added an assortment of blocks as well, and Ray Spalding owned the boards for the Cards by grabbing 12 rebounds.

It wasn’t pretty, and it wasn’t entirely impressive, but the Cards got their first conference win and their first conference road win by 15 points. Deng Adel was injured during the first half when he took a knee to the head and walked off with help and what appeared to be a concussion  (which the commentator believed was “nothing but hurt feelings”). Donovan Mitchell had his 3rd straight 20+ point game and did it with his long-range shot. Anas continues to be an enforcer, and Quentin is running the offense with minimal turnovers. Hopefully Deng doesn’t miss much time because the ACC is a grind this year and there are no easy wins. However, the Cards took a step in the right direction with their win today.

Up next, the Cards host Pittsburgh on Wednesday at 7pm, the game can be seen on the ACC Network.

Go Cards!

Louisville at Georgia Tech: Pregame Breakdown

Georgia Tech

After suffering their third loss of the season Wednesday, the 9th ranked Cardinals (12-3) travel to Georgia Tech (9-5). The game will tip off at 2pm and can be seen on the ACC Network. The Yellowjackets beat UNC by 12, then turned around and dropped their next game against Duke 110-57, which makes the UNC game appear to be more of an outlier than the 53-point thrashing Duke handed them. All that considered, the Cards stand as 13-point favorites right now, in a road ACC game that they desperately need to win in order to avoid going 0-3 to start conference play.

Louisville vs Notre Dame: Postgame Breakdown

Notre Dame

The No. 9 Louisville Cardinals suffered their 3rd loss of the season on the road at No. 23 Notre Dame, by a score of 77-70. The Cardinals started slow, but appeared to shake off the rust at times; however, they never put together consistent stretches of play and in the end it doomed the Cardinals.

Hines-Allen Pulls No. 7 Cardinals Into ACC Semifinals

1ACCGT

Greensboro, NC — Myisha Hines-Allen wore her dancing shoes and lead the Cardinals to a 60-50 victory over Georgia Tech.

“We knew it was going to be a battle,” Louisville Coach Jeff Walz told the media, “They play hard, they play physical, and they’re a very good basketball team. We’d like to congratulate them. It was a battle for sure. There’s no question about it. And we knew it was going to be.”

The Cardinals won the tip, and Mariya Moore drove to the bucket for two. An early foul by Imani Tilford sent Arica Carter to the line to hit one of two and put the Cardinals up early, 3-0.

Louisville 56 Georgia Tech 53: Postgame Recap

It wasn’t pretty, in fact it was actually pretty ugly; however, the Cards got the job done on Senior Night. The Cards found a way to win in an offensive struggle behind the performances of Chinanu Onuaku (17 points 11 rebounds), Damion Lee (14 points), and Quentin Snider (11 points). The Cards took the lead by as many as 11 points, but Georgia Tech wouldn’t go away. In the end, our fearless senior Damion Lee made 2 crucial free throws to make it the final score of 56-53.

It was truly a sight to see on Senior Night. The outpouring love and support from the crowd was felt throughout the game. Trey Lewis hit the 1500 point mark while Damion Lee reached the 2000 point club. Two major accomplishments by two outstanding men. Up next for the Cards, a rematch against Virginia at 8:30 on ESPN. If Louisville wants a shot at the ACC title they’ll have to take care of business on the road first. It was an honor being in the crowd tonight to send off Lee, Lewis and Avare. Rick Pitino’s gifts to Damion Lee and Trey Lewis spoke volumes to what those two mean to this program. Thank you Damion Lee and thank you Trey Lewis. On behalf of the all of CardNation, we always got your back. Go Cards!

Basketball Madness: A Legal Insanity

The 2015 ACC tournament is upon us with games beginning at 1pm today.  While some of us are trying to juggle midterms in between matchups, the cards have secured a double bye and will make their first conference tournament appearance on Thursday vs the winner of game 4. Here’s my thoughts on this years bracket…

Tuesday,1 Boston college vs Georgia tech

              2 Wake Forest vs virginia tech 

Game 1 Boston College is the bottom of the conference barrel.  While they are currently on a 3 game win streak with an impressive win over the Wolfpack of NC state, I don’t see Georgia tech losing to BC twice. 

Game 2 Wake Forest barely won in the regular season matchup vs the Hokies back in January. A loss for either team will be season ending. While I think it will be a relatively close matchup I see the Deacons returning for tournament action on Wednesday to face the hurricanes of Miami.

Prediction: Georgia Tech, Wake Forest

Louisville is in the ACC!!!

                     

By Justin Renck:

FINALLY!!! It is a celebration and also a sigh of relief! The sigh of relief is because of what we are getting out of, and the celebration is because of what we are getting into!

Now I am not going to get into too many facts like TV ratings, conference votes, and all of that stuff. Just going to give my opinion on the situation.
