some good news
Not all is bleak today...my alma mater won yet another hoops game, this time in a decisive victory over IU. Here's how the local paper put it:
Trailing by just two points with 3:37 to play, IU lost its composure against Louisville's hounding, full-court pressure and eventually lost the game in a big way.
Freshman forward Francisco Garcia came off the bench to score a career-high 23 points as the No. 8 Cardinals scored the game's final 17 points in a 95-76 victory over No. 19 Indiana before a Freedom Hall record crowd of 20,086.
It was the 15th win in a row for Louisville (16-1), its longest winning streak since the 1986 NCAA championship season. It's the Cardinals' best start since the 1974-75 season.
The game was supposed to have been nationally televised on CBS but was pre-empted because of the space shuttle tragedy.
According to U of L Sports Information Director Kenny Klein (and man, did I just get a flashback...I used to write sentences that began like that a lot back in my days with U of L's newspaper...), the game will be broadcast late tonight.
