Syracuse and Louisville are locked in a tight battle late at the Carrier Dome – things are tense. Rick Pitino, after an offensive foul call on the Cardinals, got a little animated. We can’t tell if he’s yelling at Russ Smith or Gorgui Dieng, but either way, he’s not happy. Something about getting out of bed after a long slumber, maybe.
It wasn’t pretty for the entire 40-minutes on Saturday afternoon, but all in all, it’s hard not to be impressed with Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals. For the first time in conference play, Louisville went on the road and won a close game against a good team.
Louisville had been playing well in the last few weeks and showing some improvement offensively. However, the...
It isn’t quite Selfie Sunday yet, but Peyton Siva and the Louisville Cardinals just couldn’t wait. After a big win on the road defeating No. 12 Syracuse, the Louisville team decided to take a group selfie to put on Instagram:

Seems like it was all in good fun to me, but some may view this as little bit of gloating. But Siva himself said he was...
If the tide was going to turn in favor of Syracuse, it was going to happen when James Southerland hit the three-point shot at the 9:21 mark.
He was getting warmed up, making four three-pointers in the second half, or so it seemed.
The 31,173 fans at the Carrier Dome felt it, University of Louisville fans had a sinking sensation with Syracuse claiming a 38-36 lead. Twenty seconds...
Louisville hasn’t won a game at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse since 2010. Let’s go back in time and relive the feeling that we’ll all experience tomorrow. Rakeem Buckles and Samardo Samuels throwing down dunk. Mike Marra and Jared Swopshire raining three’s. Why did I forget that all of this had ever occurred?
You can’t convince me that Mike Marra wouldn’t have made an...
Junior guard Luke Hancock had the biggest moment of his career at the University of Louisville on Saturday, shooting the Cardinals past host Syracuse. Hancock hit four three-pointers, including the go-ahead bucket in the final minute, and made several key defensive plays in U of L’s 58-53 win in the Carrier Dome.
Rick Pitino really wanted his Louisville Cardinals players to 'wake the f*** up' against Syracuse on Saturday.
"Wake the **** up," Rick Pitino, today during Louisville / Syracuse.
That's what she said.
No. 10 Louisville beats No. 12 Syracuse 58-53

Louisville isn't approaching Saturday's game at No. 12 Syracuse feeling nostalgic or sentimental about its final Big East matchup against the Orange.
Revenge isn't even the primary motivation for the No. 10 Cardinals, whose agenda is winning out and making a run at the conference tournament title. They've won four in a row and their hopes are riding on the improved...
About a month and a half ago, Louisville didn’t close out a game against Syracuse in the Yum Center…this time was a different story. The Cards went into the Carrier Dome and closed out a game in the last minute behind multiple big plays by Luke Hancock.
I have always been the biggest critic of Luke Hancock but today I found myself hoping that he was on the floor over Wayne...

Syracuse already knocked Louisville out of its perch atop the AP poll six weeks ago.
Beating the Cardinals again may end their Big East title hopes and possibly boost the Orange's
No. 12 Syracuse looks to re-establish its home dominance by beating 10th-ranked Louisville for the fourth time in a row on Saturday.
