Pitino Remains Guarded Despite Big Win Over Arkansas State

Despite their big 54-27 win over Arkansas State on Tuesday, Coach Rick Pitino says the Cards have a lot of work to do before hitting the hardwood again.

Pitino praised the Cards’ defense, saying the trend continued from last week’s road victory against Butler. But Pitino also went on to say he doesn’t expect the wins to continue if the Cards play offense like they did against the Red Wolves.

Pitino says he’s a bit more forgiving of the freshman mistakes than the senior mistakes; especially senior Kyle Kuric who he says did not play good team basketball. Kuric agrees.

Meanwhile, point guard Peyton Siva says even though they’re schedule is about to get tough, the Cards are up for the challenge.

The Cardinals face off against Ohio on Friday at 7:00 pm in Louisville.
