Fresh off of a devastating comeback defeat, the Louisville Cardinals are in the midst of yet another loss. Facing off against the Clemson Tigers at home, Chris Mack's squad finds itself down 23-19 at halftime.

The Cardinals have been dominated on the boards this afternoon, but kept themselves in the game with 12 forced turnovers. Neither side is shooting particularly well, but Louisville is shooting a shade under 30-percent on the day and just over 11-percent from three-point range.

Clemson finished the half on a 3-0 run in the final seconds to extend its lead to four at the half. The Tigers are in search of a significant ACC victory as the team looks to boost its tournament profile.

Louisville has lost two games in a row, including an embarrassing loss to the Duke Blue Devils.

After leading by 23 points late in the second half, Louisville coughed up 35 points in the final 10 minutes of the game to suffer a two-point loss to the Blue Devils.

Now the team is in danger of losing its third game in a row and fourth in the last five games.

The second half is underway from the KFC Yum Center and the Tigers hold a 27-22 lead with 17 minutes left.
