Rick Pitino wasn’t very pleased with his team’s performance at the end of the first half, but a more energetic and fast paced second half led to a huge 79-55 win over Florida International. The Cards got a very balanced attack as Rick Pitino defeated his son Richard in their first ever meeting.
Peyton Siva had one of his better offensive performances of the season finishing with 15 points and 12 assists making a career high 5 three pointers.. Wayne Blackshear chipped in with 18 points. Chane Behanan had a quiet 14 points and 11 rebounds. The Cards finished with 12 three pointers on the night.
It seemed at times that the Cards played to the level of their competition, but overall I think we can agree that this Louisville team is very god. The depth has really showed in the past two games for the Cards.
