*Louisville played its best all-around game and stayed in control for virtually the entire contest as the Cards won going away, 66-53.
*UofL entered the game as a 2.5-point underdog, the first time as a non-favorite in the NCAA Tournament since playing UK in the 2012 Final Four.
*Terry Rozier was on a different level, scoring 25 points, grabbing 7 rebounds, and dishing out 5 assists.
*Trez was more active against a smaller front court, and basically put the game away late with a couple of thunderous alley-oops and finished with 14 points and 6 rebounds.
*Wayne became the 67th 1,000-point scorer in UofL history as he posted 10 points and 6 rebounds. However, his block of UNI’s Wes Washpun halted the Panthers’ momentum late in the second half. Instead of it being a 4-point game, the Cards took the ball and scored on the ensuing possession to put themselves up 8.
*Quentin Snider continued his steady play, totaling 10 points and 4 rebounds. He has committed just two turnovers in tournament play.
Louisville's Quentin Snider in two NCAA Tournament games: 13.0 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 10-20 FGs, 4-7 3-pt FGs. Just 2 turnovers in 72 total minutes.
