Lexington: Red Scare

By - March 15, 2007

Never thought I'd see this much red during my first trip to hallowed Rupp Arena.

The first-round meeting between No. 6-seeded Louisville and No. 11-seeded Stanford has been a track meet throughout the first 15 minutes -- between the tortoise and the hare. The Cards have been forcing the tempo in their favor and taking the drowsy-looking Cardinal behind the woodshed on the glass while jumping out to a 41-13 advantage. But with five minutes remaining in the half, Stanford still has an opportunity to make a run that would make the contest a somewhat managable endeavor at the break.

Earl Clark has been lights out for the Cards with 10 points on 4-for-5 from the floor. But defense has been the key to Louisville's explosion out of the gate -- the Big Easters have forced a dozen turnovers so far.
