Connecticut Falls 78-76 on Late Louisville Layup

Connecticut Falls 78-76 on Late Louisville Layup STORRS, Conn. — Edgar Sosa‘s
driving layup with 8 seconds left gave Louisville a 78-76 victory over
Connecticut on Sunday, adding another conference road win to the
Cardinals’ NCAA tournament resume.

Samardo Samuels led four Cardinals in
double figures with 14 points. Jerry Smith and Preston Knowles each had
12 and Kyle Kuric added 10 for Louisville (19-10, 10-6 Big East).

The Cardinals have won six of their
past eight, starting with a win over UConn on Feb. 1.

Kemba Walker led UConn with 28, but
his drive to the basket in the final seconds was stuffed by Samuels to
preserve the win.

UConn seniors Gavin Edwards (17),
Stanley Robinson
(14) and Jerome Dyson (13) also scored in double
figures in their final home game.
