We’re 9 1/2 minutes in at Dayton Arena, with U of L leading 17-12.
The Cards got off to a good star and grabbed an early 17-7 lead behind some outstanding play by freshman Samardo Samuels. He scored two straight post baskets on transition entries after running the floor well.
Since then, though, U of L has gotten careless with the ball. They’ve turned it over on three straight possessions, once when Edgar Sosa was stripped driving for a layup on the fast break, and twice on careless passes by Earl Clark.
After opening in a 2-3 zone, Morehead has gone to what looks like a 1-2-2 trap, and they’re dropping back into it in the halfcourt, and that has slowed the Cards a bit.
More to come . . .
