The Cardinal Connect:
Where should I start? The outcome of this game is spot on to what most people predicted. However, the way it was played was a little surprising. Referee’s make bad calls in every game. Very rarely do their calls dictate the outcome of the game. Today’s game was one of those rare occasions. The 51 fouls that were called made this an ugly and tough game to watch. It seemed like every player on Louisville’s roster was in foul trouble at some point.
There are no moral victories in this rivalry. However, if you would have told me that Peyton Siva and Kyle Kuric would have played the way they did and Louisville would only lose by 7, I’ll take it. Kentucky was just the better team today. There is no way around that. The biggest disappointment to me was the fact that they appeared to want it more than Louisville. I rarely question the effort of this Louisville team, but Kentucky fought a lot harder and they were a lot tougher than the Cards today. The length advantage was in Kentucky’s fav...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Russ Smith and No. 4 Louisville were in a big hole for the second straight game. The sharpshooting sophomore nearly helped the Cardinals battle back in a big way.
Life can get back to normal now but the basketball gods would not be pleased with this latest Bluegrass basketball classic — a game in which a winner could only be decided by the team that played less poorly than the other.An awful exhibition of offense, with neither the University of Louisville or Kentucky demonstrating any ability to shoot when challenged by a good defensive...
The Cardinals (12-2) only led at 2-0, but gave Kentucky all it could handle after rallying from an early 15-point deficit before tying it in the second half thanks to Russ Smith, who had a career-high 30 points.

#3 Kentucky 69, #4 Louisville 62You had to know what you were getting into with this game. The athleticism on these two teams is mind-boggling, but the game was just incredibly sloppy and out-of-control. There were 34 turnovers, 18 steals, 15 blocks and only 16 assists. There were 70 free throw attempts compared to only 37 made shots from the field. By my calculation this game...
As much as I like to poke fun at Kentucky and their fans, I try my best to be a realist. Which means I realize that Kentucky is a good team and they won’t be easy to beat tomorrow. With that being said, I definitely think there are some weaknesses and flaws, but not many opponents have been able to expose that. This is a tough game to predict because you don’t have a clue how...
