Syracuse vs. Louisville: Statistical Breakdown


Brett Carlsen

Was I the only one to go to sleep last night hoping we would wake up today to learn Friday's game was merely a nightmare we had dreamt? Because I did. And, hey, it turned out to be half true!

The game was a nightmare. But we sure as hell didn't dream it.
