Found November 21, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect Rick Pitino’s team has been impressive in many different areas so far this season. Their defense always looks solid at this time of the year, however Tuesday’s performance was one of the best I’ve ever seen from a Pitino coached team. The offense usually takes a little bit of time to start gelling, but so far in 2013-14, the Cards offense already appears to be in late season form. One area in particular that Louisville has done an exception job at so far this season is the turnover battle. Louisville is No.1 in the country in assists-to-turnover ratio. The Cards are also averaging just 6.3 turnovers in the four games they’ve played. Only one team in the country is averaging less turnovers than the Cards. Assist-to-Turnover Ratio Nat’l Rank Conf Rank A/T Team Conf Games 1 1 2.6 Louisville American Athletic 4 2 1 2.54 Creighton Big East 3 3 1 2.42 Utah Pac-12 2 4 1 2.13 Brigham Young West Coast 5 5 1 2.0 New Mexico Mountain West 2 ...

Louisville 87 – Hartford 48: Cards Hammer Hawks

Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect Let’s be honest with ourselves. Teams like Hofstra, Cornell and Hartford aren’t great measuring sticks at this point of the season.
