(Photo – GoCards.com)   Although there were definitely some weak spots last night in Louisville’s crushing 115-67 win over D-2 Kentucky Wesleyan, in the end it’s hard to argue with and pick apart a 48-point victory. Montrezl Harrell looked unguardable in the paint, Terry Rozier showed flashes of a brilliant floor game and the young players in general got plenty of game-time experience despite the fact that the route was on.
