Louisville destroyed Houston by 39 points at home just two-and-a-half weeks ago and went into last night’s second match-up favored by 14.5 points. The Cards came out firing and took a 20-point lead in the first half, but after letting the Cougars make a few runs in the second frame, they ended up winning by 15 points, 77-62. Cover city. It reminds me why I don’t gamble anymore. Anyway, degenerate soliloquies...Continue reading »
