Louisville rolls in exhibition despite heavy whistles

Tweet! At one point during the first half of the Louisville-Kentucky Wesleyan exhibition there were more whistles than made shots.

Wesleyan, typically a competitive Division II team, was whistled for 24 fouls in the first half. Louisville shot 33 free throws in the half, and was whistled for 11 fouls of its own.

Physicality is a new focus for referees this season and KWC must have missed the memo. The Panthers had a player pick up his fourth foul with more than 8 minutes left in the first half. They ended the half with six players with three or more fouls.

Despite the extremely slow pace, Louisville continued to pull away, pushing ahead by 23 with just over four minutes left in the half. Led by 15 first half points from Russ Smith and 10 from Montrezl Harrell, the Cardinals led 49-33 at the half.

The second half was more of the same despite the Cardinals emptying the bench. As more and more Wesleyan players fouled out, Louisville continued to pull away.

Louisville led 103-57 with just over four minutes left. Harrell left the game with 20 points, and Russ Smith had 18 when he left after twisting his ankle.

The Cardinals finished with five players in double-figures and 10 different players scoring points.
