11:03 second half- Anas Mahmoud hits the layup after being fouled. Louisville leads 37-25.

15:30 second half- Louisville leads Pitt 29-21. Onuaku has notched his fourth straight double-double.

17:10 second half- Louisville leads Pitt 27-19. Johnson just scored off of a nice pass from Onuaku. Jaime Dixon calls a timeout as the Cardinals take the largest lead of the game.

Halftime: Louisville leads Pitt 20-17. Defensive stalemate thus far, both teams struggling from the field. Louisville is shooting nine of 32 (28-percent) while Pitt is six of 25 (24-percent) from the field. Onuaku has nine points and seven rebounds.

Coming off a 66-62 loss at Clemson on Sunday, Louisville hosts Pitt at the KFC YUM! Center for a matchup against two top-25 teams.

Louisville is playing its first of two games against 20th-ranked Pitt.

The 21st-ranked Cardinals have not beaten a top-25 team this season, so tonight is another chance to pick up its first marquee victory of the season.
