One of the best rivalries in college basketball is renewed Saturday afternoon, with the Louisville Cardinals out-shooting the Kentucky Wildcats thus far. With a 36-28 halftime lead, the Cardinals have shot nearly 50 percent from the field while the Wildcats haven't been able to get it going, shooting 35 percent.
Ryan Harrow leads the way for the Wildcats with nine points, but is just 3 of 8 from the field. Alex Poythress has seven points and four rebounds off the bench, and forward Nerlens Noel has six points and four rebounds. Kentucky, which relies on its ability to shoot from the outside, is just 3-9 on three-point attempts, while Louisville is 2-3.
Kentucky is No. 4 Louisville's last non-conference test before Big East play begins Jan. 2.
