The Cardinal Connect:
Peyton Siva played 38 minutes and was whistled for only one personal foul. Yes, only one.
Louisville played nine guys 14 or more minutes, but only four played more than 20 minutes. That much sharing of minutes and this team should never get gassed.
Cards shot just under 52% against the Golden Eagles for they’re second highest performance in conference play and third highest on the season.
Peyton Siva’s 14 points and Russ Smith’s 18 points mark the 11th time in 22 games this season that both have hit in double figures. All but one of which (Duke) was a victory.
Cards with the edge over Marquette on Points Off Turnovers with an insane 32-9 margin; especially astounding considering the similarity in turnovers (Lou-16/Marq-17).
Once again Montrezl Harrell comes in with a demonstrative performance in limited minutes. Statline is good, but not indicative of the impact that was made. Six points and six rebounds in 16 minutes.
Louisville out-rebounded Marquette 38-26. Seeme...

It was a slow start for the Cardinals as they trailed Marquette 1-9 and didn’t score a field goal in the first four minutes of the game. However, Rick Pitino’s team used a huge run midway through the second half to pull away for good, winning 70-51 against the Golden Eagles.

On a day when Rick Pitino broke out his white suit and the marketing department called for a white out, the Cardinals played a great game in route to a 70 to 51 victory.
