Louisville hits new low in 79-63 home loss to NC State

A new low may be hit Wednesday for the Louisville basketball team, already thanks to a 79-63 home loss at the hands of NC State in the first two months. The Wolfpack entered the ACC game 1-4 in the evening.

The Cardinals, who won a thriller in Raleigh on December 4, were unable to complete the Wolfpack’s regular season sweep, thanks in large part to some absurd shooting from their guests and lightning-fast, speed-shifting races in the first. Half.

The 32 percent three-point shooting team that came into the night, NC State, exploded for a 12-of-25 (48%) performance from beyond the arc inside the KFC Yum Center.

The person most responsible for the outside attack was freshman guard Terquavian Smith. Smith, who also lit up Louisville at the PNC Arena last month, drilled six of the nine three-pointers he did on his way to a game-high 24 points. Jerichol Helms, who also had a good first game of cards, was 5-of-7 from deep and added 19 points.

For the first two segments of the game, Louisville seemed to be off to a really positive evening. They were beating NC State on both ends of the floor, and they took an 18-15 lead, which felt like it should have been even bigger.

Then, seemingly out of thin air, the Wolfpack went on a 16-0 run, which took a little over two minutes to happen. l’s u never really healed.

Sydney Curry was pretty much the only bright spot for Louisville. The reserve center scored a career-high 22 points on 10-in-13 shooting from the field and also pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds, giving him the first double-double of his Cardinal career. Fellow reserves Noah Locke and Dre Davis were the only other U of L players in double digits, both scoring 13 runs.

Louisville’s opening five Jarrod West, El Ellis, Matt Cross, Samuel Williamson and Malik Williams scored a total of 11 points on 4-of-19 shooting from the field.

Entering Wednesday night, NC State was leading the ACC in both offensive rebounds and free-throws. Louisville made a season-less five offensive rebounds to the Wolfpack and a season-less three free-throw… and they lost 16.

The first two months of this season have been very long. The next two months are going to feel long.
