Last night at Freedom Hall:

SEEN AND HEARD

Louisville officially named the court at venerable Freedom Hall “Denny Crum Court,” dedicating the floor to the Hall of Fame coach who collected 675 victories and two national titles (1980 and 1986) as the Cardinals’ longtime head man. The spoiling of such a ceremony couldn’t help but remind any Georgetown fan of Feb. 13, 1980. On that night, the Hoyas came from behind to drop Syracuse 52-50 in the final game played at Manley Field House, prompting coach John Thompson Jr. to grab the PA microphone afterward and utter the phrase that ignited a rivalry: “Now, Manley Field House is officially closed.”

BY THE NUMBERS

2 Total turnovers for both teams in the first half, making it one of the cleanest periods of hoops played this season. Louisville did not commit a turnover before intermission but still trailed the Hoyas 38-31.
