Louisville Hands Pitt Largest Loss In Over 100 Years

Louisville and Pitt met for an ACC showdown, it didn't end well for the Panthers.

The Panthers suffered their largest defeat in over 100 years. The No. 15 Louisville Cardinals came to town and dominated the game from the opening whistle. Louisville jumped out to a huge 51-18 lead at the half, tied for the largest halftime lead against a conference opponent this season. The final score? 106-51.

The Cardinals shot 58.2 percent from the field, while Pitt managed just 25.5 percent shooting. Louisville out-rebounded the Panthers by a 48-26 margin. Had it not been for free throws, the loss would have been much, much worse. Pitt nailed 22 free throws during the game, inflating the team's final score.

But that's not all. Pitt head coach Kevin Stallings got ejected in the second half of the game.

Pitt sits at a respectable 12-8 on the season, but its conference record is an abysmal 1-6. A far cry from the Pitt teams of the past who made the NCAA tournament with regularity.
