How Louisville can grow from the loss at North Carolina

01/13/2015 07:30 AM

Losing on the road against a top-20 North Carolina team is nothing to scoff at, but Louisville does have problems that need to be addressed going forward.

The Cards bench them zero points, UofL got pounded in the rebounding battle which led to giving up 17 second chance points and the team ultimately blew a double-digit lead with less than 10-minutes to go in the game.

If these trends continue, Louisville could struggle during what will be an incredibly difficult ACC schedule. But if the team learns from these mistakes and continues to grow, the Cards earn a spot as one of the nation’s elite.

Following the loss, Rick Pitino talked about what went wrong and where UofL will go from here.
