Morehead State just took the tip-in, and the Eagles have seized momentum, outplaying the Cardinals during an 8-0 run that was keyed by a pair of deep three-pointers by Maze Stallworth.
The Eagles are bothering U of L with a trapping zone in the half-court, and appear to have established a nice rhythm against the Cardinals’ 2-3 zone.
You wonder, with the Eagles hitting threes and cutting through the seams for easy put-backs, why Pitino wouldn’t want to switch things up a bit on defense.
After forcing four Morehead State turnovers in the first 3:18, U of L has committed five of its own over a four-minute stretch. U of L has scored 4 points off turnovers, Morehead State 7.
