The Louisville Cardinals were looking to stop the losing streak tonight against Duke tonight at Cameron Indoor. It's suffice to say that it did not happen.

Louisville led 3-2 to start the game against Duke but did not lead again in the game. Duke led by as many as 26 in the game, and after the 5-7 minutes it was all Duke. Louisville seemed to have no offensive presence in the game besides making lucky shots and talented players like Skyy Clark and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield making plays for the team.

Duke seemed to be lazy when handling the ball and had 9 turnovers in the game, but that wasn't due to Louisville's defensive presence, but more due to Duke not playing up to the best of their abilities.

This will be the 3rd straight game that the Cardinals have scored in the 50s, and the defense has been getting consistently worse for all of February. Kenny Payne will finish the season with 1 road win in the past 2 seasons, and it is looking more and more evident that he will not be manning the helm for Louisville in 2025.
