The first half of the game ended up playing right into U of L’s hands. It was messy, scrappy, and Davidson missed many of their 3-point attempts. Here’s a quick breakdown of the important stats of the first half…

Davidson is cold from 3-point land, shooting 18% with 2-11.

Louisville is still up after playing extremely sloppy, giving up 9 turnovers in the first half.

Gorgui Dieng is in foul trouble, with 3 personal fouls.

U of L, while turning the ball over, is shooting well when they can hold onto it – with a 51 FG percentage.

Here are a few screenshots, summarizing how much of the game has gone. While Dieng has been able to be in the game, he’s been a defensive force.

Most of the Twitter reaction has been dominated by U of L fans, who seem to be displeased with the Card’s sloppy start, but are of course happy to be up by eight. As always, fans aren’t happy with the officiating.

Still not a horrible 1st half. 8 point lead. Now if we can just stay out of foul trouble. Will be hard cause we play so physical. #GoCards(image) 21 minutes ago via Twitter for Android ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
