I wasn't exaggerating (much) when I said in the game thread that this was a night where just about everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong.
--Knowles and Siva in foul trouble
--Two huge Preston threes erased by two highly questionable (one absolutely ridiculous) illegal screen calls
--Terrence Jennings playing very well and then re-injuring his hip
--Vincent Council's unintentional bank shot
--Marshon Brooks getting hot early in the second half and then staying hot
--Louisville actually leading Providence at halftime
--Mike Marra being forced into extended action while still looking noticeably gimpy and having no confidence in his outside shot
--Keno Davis actually making a great in-game adjustment by calling off the press and turning to straight man
--Kyle Kuric missing uncontested threes for the first time in weeks
--Preston Knowles getting uncontested threes for the first time in weeks (seriously, scouting report: don't get a hand in his face)
This isn't a season-killer, but these guys just made things a lot tougher on themselves.
The gauntlet starts Wednesday.
