Okay, so U of L normally loses neutral site games early on — their .167 for the last three years in such contests, far and away the lowest in the Big East — but this clunker against the Hilltoppers was especially ugly.
But I’m repeating myself.
Shot less that 30%. Outrebounded by 12. The two point guards were 0-Whatever. The Cards were somnambulant. That means they were sleep walking. Which is really more of a compliment that it should be.
Did I mention U.G.L.Y.? Uh, so I did.
Hopefully this will be a blip on the screen. But Samardo needs to learn how to block out and jump for rebounds. And the whole team needs to play its patented pressure defense, whether the shots are falling or not.
Kudos to the Hilltoppers and new coach Ken McDonald. Best team today won.
