Louisville didn’t just manhandle poor Savannah State on Monday night. They blew them out of the building by a score of 87-26.

The game was pretty much over at tip-off. Louisville opened the game on a 29-0 run and Savannah State did not score a single point until after 15 minutes and 58 seconds of game time had passed. The Cardinals also set a school record for fewest points allowed in a half – seven.

After the blowout, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino even sounded slightly contrite during his post game press conference, where he noted that he wouldn’t even watch film of the game, given how lopsided it was.

“This will be the first time since I’ve been at Louisville that I will not watch the game film. You get nothing out of this. You feel bad for the other team.”

And when he was asked whether he enjoyed watching his team beat an opponent that badly, Pitino admitted that he couldn’t and that he did all he could to not further embarrass Savannah State.

“No, I don’t like to see any team struggle like that, I really don’t. We tried everything. I played four white guys and Egyptian.”

The strategy must not have paid off too well judging by the final score.
