UofL BASKETBALL | Cards Win Big Over Visiting Bryant

12/11/2017 10:33 PM

The UofL men’s basketball team scored over 100 points for the first time this regular season on Monday night.

The Cards (7-2) beat Bryant (1-10) by 43 points, winning 102-59 inside the KFC Yum! Center in their Gotham Classic match-up.

The Bulldogs hung around with UofL until late in the first half, only trailing 31-30 to the home team with roughly five minutes to play until halftime. The Cardinals soon responded, going on a 20-5 run heading into the half, as they led 51-35 at the break.

A big reason for the Cards’ halftime advantage was the play of Anas Mahmoud. The forward had 17 points and seven rebounds in the game’s first 20 minutes. He finished the night with 17 points and nine rebounds.

Joining Mahmoud in double figures were four other Cardinals. Deng Adel and Quentin Snider each had 17 points. Meanwhile, Ray Spalding tacked on 11 points and nine rebounds and Lance Thomas added 10 points and seven rebounds.

After the game, UofL interim head coach David Padgett shared his thoughts on his team’s victory:
