Big East Championship Game 2011, Louisville Vs. UConn: With 12 To Go, The Game Gets Frenetic And Sloppy

With 12 minutes to go in the 2011 Big East Championship game, the game has gotten truly nasty. Both Preston Knowles and Peyton Siva appear to have picked up injuries for Louisville, and both are sitting on the bench coming out of the under 12 minute break, which occurred at exactly 11:59. Knowles picked up his injury in an innocent scramble, while Siva was injured on a borderline block-charge engagement with Kemba Walker that went Walker's way, perhaps unfairly so. Louisville are going to struggle to content with UConn without those two players, without a doubt.

Walker has had some influence on the game, but it's obvious that the pace and physicality of the game has taken him out of his element a bit. He's not being allowed to set up jump shots in half court sets, as Louisville has succeeded in sucking UConn into their style of play. Still, despite that, UConn hold a 47-42 lead at the media break.
