11/25/2011 09:06 PM

Louisville coach Rick Pitino said earlier this week that Ohio was a team that could come into the Yum! Center and win and the Bobcats nearly did just that Friday evening.

The Cards, boosted by the return of point guard Peyton Siva, escaped thanks to 16 points from Kyle Kuric and a double-double (10 points and 16 boards) from Gorgui Dieng. Siva contributed four points (0-7 from the field) and six assists in 33 minutes. The victory gave Pitino his 250th win as Louisville coach.
