Halftime Update: Wichita State 26, Louisville 25

Screen Shot 2013-04-06 at 7.27.30 PM

 

 

If not for the whole “Louisville is losing to Wichita State” thing, I’d call that a pretty brutal half of basketball. Both teams are borderline ice cold from the field (WSU: 9-28, UL: 8-20), and it’s been pretty sloppy from the opening tip. That said, the Cards are indeed losing. From here on out, all the pressure is on Louisville. If they don’t start hitting shots, then Pitino’s vaunted full court press isn’t going to do a whole lot of good. And as WSU coach Gregg Marshall just said in the locker room: “everyone in the building not wearing red” will be pulling for the Shockers.

 

Some of us are pulling for you at home too, Coach.

 

Second half starting now…

    Why is Rick Pitino the only coach who doesn’t have to do the after halftime media interview?

    I want Louisville to win because the media says we should all feel sorry for them. One of their subs got injured and is out for the year.
    HAHAHAHAHAHA
    F*CK THE CARDS!!!!!

    Wichita State isn’t scared of Louisville, that’s the first team so far in the tournament…..

    Louisville is playing really tight. Doesn’t look like them at all.

    I dont understand why when two teams play exceptional defense people have begun calling it brutal to watch. Maybe it was just the best defensive half of basketball youve watched this year.

    That figures that Louisville would win this game on the strength of Tim Henderson, who is Louisville’s equivalent of Brian Long

    Wichita St shooting in the double bonus with 11 minutes left. Poor Louisville. The officials are finally calling the fouls they’re committing and they don’t know what to do.

    Shockers cracked big time at the end of this game. You knew UL was going to be destined when they started hitting all those 3’s with their subs and then Behanan hit those ft’s.

    That kid Early on WS is a beast



  22. Alan

    I’m not understanding why the Shockers didn’t send the ball in to Early or the kid with the glasses more. They were dominating and hitting free-throws early on, and that’s what got them out to the big lead.

    Really bad play by the Shockers at the end of the game, and amazing play from UL’s white kids.

    AND they didn’t foul Dieng. WTF.

    The only way to make this right, Wichita St., is to punch Russ Smith in the face on the last play.

    Louisville wins on a bad call. Sounds about right.

    I will say, this is not the same team…praying Syracuse wins and kicks the butt Monday…



  28. Bobbum man

    How can that ref call a jump ball so quickly at that point in the game??? Horrible call although UL probably wins either way… Great game though



  29. rixter

    Not 2 seconds. Two one-hundredths



  30. rixter

    It’d be nice though if WS had a chance to get a shot that last 8 seconds

    8:42 pm April 6, 2013 Permalink

    Two bad calls actually. The guy gets smacked in the face and they call it dbl foul. Should have been 2 shots and the ball. Then at the end a toss up.

    #25…. Exactly what I said
    #26…. That call was horrible. In my eyes UofL lost that game. The refs pick won it tho.

    Louisville luckiest team in college bball. Clearly should’ve lost but that 1 player on wich st #23 I beleive turned into their russdiculous. Stupid shots and turnovers doomed his team. Then last play tieball??? c’mon that was a quick whistle and a foul on louisville anyway. Well let’s go Cuse, only team that can beat lil bro now.

    Well, congratulations to the Hall of Fame coach for getting his first win in the Final Four since just before my sixteen year old daughter was born

    I am glad Louisville won, and will be pulling for them in Championship game. Makes our rivalry with them better. We will take it back to its real home next year, though.

    Game was called completely different for the last 6-7 min.

    I hate to see a group of kids play their hearts out to only see the officials take it away from them. Typical more and more in big games as it seems the under dog has to play 125 percent better to over come them.

    i will never cheer for those chokers again, i hope they go back to kansas and the tourney never hears of them again

    #34 – yeah, you said it. That #23 kid cost them the game. At least two horrible turnovers. At that point, the Wichita St. coach should have said “F it” and put his GOOD point guard back in with 4 fouls.

    WS kind of blew it but the refs definitely shoved this one ULs way!



  45. Blueneck
    8:47 pm April 6, 2013 Permalink

    The thing about the Dirty Birds is they play THUG BALL. Have their hands all over guys, constantly bumping and grabbing cause they know the refs won’t call them all. And yes he coached the same way way at UK. I always remember feeling guilty as we knocked guys down while pressing and just headed the other way. Not sure why refs let the game get over physical in the last 10 minutes.

    BS the reffs didnt cost them the game, that number 2 guy did



  47. [email protected] #losers

    also that idiot that left henderson open twice in a row got his stuff blocked by dieng and cost the shot clock

  48. scukfan22

    No the refs them selves didnt cost them the game. They did however completely change the flow of the game by calling it different than they did the first 30-35 minutes. I know you cant blame refs completely, but it is reasonable to expect consistency.



  49. Alan
    8:52 pm April 6, 2013 Permalink

    Also, Luke Hancock is like the most ANTI-Louisville player I’ve ever seen on their roster, next to Van Treese. Van Treese looks like a lumberjack and Luke Hancock seems like an average kid with a normal (non-line) beard.

    Pitino ball – eventually they stop calling fouls, and when they do, we make our run… coincidence? I think not.
