Getting back to work after an eight-day hiatus, the 10th-ranked Louisville Cardinals will begin a brief two-game road swing, starting with Sunday's ACC clash with the Pittsburgh Panthers at the Petersen Events Center.
Michael Young tallied a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds as the Pittsburgh Panthers outlasted the Florida State Seminoles, 73-64, in an Atlantic Coast Conference tilt at Petersen Events Center.
It took Pittsburgh little time to make a resounding impression in its ACC debut. The Panthers opened with a 16–1 record, including 4–0 in the league, and raised eyebrows from Tobacco Road to Tallahassee.
The NCAA Tournament will go on without Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Roy Williams.
At least as far as the Final Four is concerned, that means new blood.
Of the 16 coaches left in the NCAA Tournament, only six have been to the Final Four. Some of the others are young coaches making their first major impression (Dayton’s Archie Miller, UConn’s Kevin Ollie), but the Sweet 16 is more notable for the coaches who have accomplished nearly everything they can in their career without reaching the Final Four.
