After scoring 22 points in the first quarter, the Cards would score only 27 to finish the game… and it would be 29 too few to remain unbeaten on the season in regulation.    In that first quarter, they were 10-19 from FG range, outrebounded FSU 14-9, had 6 team assists and 12 points in the paint compared to FSU’s 2.

Louisville went on to lose every quarter to follow.  And fall to the #12 Seminoles at home by a point in front of 14,248 fans on Sunday evening.

Tied at 38 at the start of the 4th quarter, Coach Walz said he felt good that his team could find a way to win.   The Seminoles took their first lead at 37-36 in the third quarter. They shot just 28 percent overall.

Hines-Allen finished with 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting while Durr was 5 of 21 and 1 of 8 from long range. The Cardinals made just 7 of 30 shots after halftime and were outrebounded 52-42.

Arica Carter‘s 3-pointer put Louisville (20-1, 6-1) ahead with 1:54 to go. Alix answered from long range, and then Ekhomu made the second of two from the line.

Up next: the Cards are on the road Thursday at Miami and then back at home Sunday facing Wake Forest next SUNDAY at 1PM
