The Louisville Cardinals held their first red-white scrimmage of the season on Friday night inside the KFC Yum! Center.

Team Red won the match-up 94-80 over Team White.

Team Red was led by forwards Deng Adel and Ray Spalding. The veterans combined for 54 of the team’s 94 points.

Adel led all scorers in the game with 32 points. He also added 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Spalding also had a double-double, with 22 points and 16 rebounds.

Center Stephen Enouch also scored in double-digits for Team Red, as he ended the night with 13 points.

Overall, Team Red shot the ball better than its opponent, going 37-of-74 (50.0%) from the field, compared to Team White shooting 39.7% (29-of-73) from the field.

Team White was led by forward V.J. King, who scored 30 points on the night.

He was joined by former Jordan Nwora (18) and guard Quentin Snider (12) in double-digits.

UofL acting head coach David Padgett shared his thought’s on the scrimmage after it ended:

Friday was an important night for the players, as it finally helped them return have a sense of normalcy after all the off-the-court drama surrounding the program in the last month:

Guard Ryan McMahon finished the night with 6 points, but he left the game in the first half with bruised ribs. He will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

The Cards’ next red-white scrimmage will take place in two weeks, on Friday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. ET inside the KFC Yum! Center.
