Louisville Cardinals

September 12, 2015 - 12:06am
The first ACC match of the season concluded as a 1-1 tie with the Louisville Cardinals.

An evenly played match between the Syracuse Orange and Louisville Cardinals ended after double overtime in a 1-1 draw. Both ACC (3-1-1, 0-0-1 ACC) teams scored in the first half of a brisk Friday night that was unable to produce a victor, perhaps rightfully so.

"It was two honest teams that canceled each other out," Syracuse Head Coach Ian McIntyre said. "A fair result."

The Cardinals mount the second-biggest comeback in NCAA Championship history to win its 16th game in a row and the one that matters most.

This year's NCAA men's Division One National Championship will undoubtedly go down as a top ten final in tournament history.

Louisville didn't need last second shots or overtime, but it did need 12-point comeback to push past Michigan to win the championship, 82-76. 

In a year of winning streaks, Louisville is the only team to end its with a win—the Cardinals' sixteenth since losing the in five overtimes to Notre Dame in early February. Rick Pitino, in his 35th season as a head coach, was humbled at the press conference.

In the final Big East tournament for No. 19 Syracuse, the Orange could not hold on to a halftime lead, eventually falling to the No. 4 Cardinals, 78-61.

The No. 4 Lousiville Cardinals (29-5) won the Big East Championship for the second straight year and third since 2009. This time, it was a 78-61 victory over No. 19 Syracuse. The Orange (26-9) came out swinging in the first half, coasting to a 35-22 lead at halftime. However, the second half was all Louisville, who outscored the Orange 56-26, including a 44-10 run.

“I thought that they were the best team in the league from the beginning of the year,” head coach Jim Boeheim said. “They proved that today.”

No. 24 Syracuse upset No. 13 Louisville in the last Big East regular season game in the Carrier Dome Monday night, 68-57.

The Syracuse women used a 16-0 run spanning nearly eight minutes to propel them to a 68-57 win against the Louisville Cardinals in the team’s regular season finale Monday night at the Carrier Dome.

The win ends a three game losing streak for the No. 24 Orange (23-6, 11-5) and clinches a double bye in the Big East Tournament. The No. 13 Cardinals (23-7, 11-5) drop to fourth place in the conference standings.

The team will get some needed rest, after a quick turnaround following Saturday’s triple overtime loss to Villanova.

Another poor shooting night for No. 12 Orange lead to the team's third straight loss in Saturday's game against No. 10 Louisville.

The losing streak continues.

No. 12 Syracuse (22-7, 10-6) lost its third game in a row, this time to No. 10 Louisville (24-5, 12-4) on Saturday afternoon, 58-53. This marked the last game between the two in Big East play. Turnovers and a poor offensive start put SU in a hole that they weren’t able to fight out of.

“You can’t make those types of mistakes in tournament type games,” said head coach Jim Boeheim. “It’s difficult to win against zone defenses when you don’t make many shots from the perimeter.”

Winners of their last five, the Syracuse Orange are clicking at the right time. SU will look to continue its streak Thursday at 2 p.m. when it takes on the winner of the St. John's - Rutgers game Wednesday.

March is finally here. It’s the second season, when a single game’s outcome can determine if you will be forever cheered or jeered. March is all about the drama: single game eliminations, final possessions, and Christian Laettner-esque buzzer beaters.

Thursday afternoon (2:00 p.m. ESPN) the Orange will be starting their second season in the familiar confines of Madison Square Garden in the quarterfinals of the Big East Men’s Basketball Championship.

Behind the play of Iasia Hemingway and Kayla Alexander, Syracuse shook off a poor shooting night and made just enough plays to beat Louisville Wednesday with a score of 54-45.

When watching the Syracuse women’s basketball’s game Wednesday night, it was impossible not to notice an Orange guard zipping around the court. She was seemingly everywhere at once, driving through players on her way to the net, throwing her body across the court to guard an open opponent. 

In a game of poor shooting percentage and low scoring, Iasia Hemingway’s grit was needed on both sides of the court. An exciting, back-and-forth game against Louisville, that Syracuse held on to win, 53-45.
