Louisville Cardinals Top Colorado State to Advance to Sweet 16

Mar 24, 2013

The Louisville Cardinals men's basketball team easily beat the Colorado State Rams on Saturday to advance in the NCAA Tournament. The top-seeded Cardinals expanded on a 14-point halftime lead to win 82-56 in Lexington's Rupp Arena—which some fans were dubbing "Russ Arena," in acknowledgment of Louisville star guard Russ Smith. Smith led the Cardinals with 27 points.
