#17 LOUISVILLE 52 GEORGIA TECH 51 F..."CAMPUS HARDWOOD" on Another Manic MONDAY as the 'VILLE and Team PITINO survives an "Ambush Attempt" by the RAMBLIN' WRECK in the 404 as the 'CARDS ROZIER played CLARK KENT in the 2nd Half!...#LOUvsGT #UofLCards #YellowJackets #ACCBasketball

The 2014-15 Louisville Cardinals have struggled from day one on offense. Now that task becomes a little bit harder as they lose Juco-Star and leading scorer Chris Jones after reportedly getting the boot off the squad yesterday. I am not going to get into the particulars but the 'Crads will have to do it from here on out methodically and guard some folks to get where they want to get to and for the 'Ville that is the Final 4.

It was a gutty effort versus the home team the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets dba Ramblin' Wreck as they have been an ACC Door Mat for a few seasons talking the hoops team. The 'Cards down 24-17 and leaving 13 points from Jones out of the equation got it going behind Terry Rozier.

The 'Crads best guard and second best player behind Junior Monster Montrezl Harrell scored 18 of Louisville's 35 2nd half points including three money balls. Rozier cut a 41-28 2nd half deficit to 41-34 at the eight minute mark and that was crucial for the 'Ville seemingly getting nothing done on that end.

The 'Cards close the game after that going on a 21-10 run and throw out the Yellow Jackets money ball at the buzzer at the end of the game it was a 21-7 run. Rozier had  game-high 22 points going 3 for 8 from deep as Senior Wayne Blackshear from Chicago, Illinois Morgan Park High School added 10 points and grabbed eight boards. The All-American Harrell chipped in with 8 points and eight boards.

Tech struggled in the 2nd half as they were led by Marcus Georges-Hunt's 13 points and DeMarco Cox's double-double of 11 points and eleven boards. Tech lead man Brian Gregory a longtime Sparty Assistant under Tom Izzo has struggled to keep that Atlanta Metro Talent at home and he is past on the hot seat.

The 'Ville moves to 22-5 and 10-5 in the ACC as Tech falls to 3-13 in the ACC and 12-16 overall.
