Louisville (21-4, 12-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost for the first time since early January with a truly terrible offensive performance against the Yellow Jackets (12-13, 6-8). The Cardinals led 44-30 at halftime and held off a second-half rally attempt by the Cavaliers.

In the Cardinals win over Virginia, Louisville was guided on offense by Jordan Nwora. Pan led all scorers with 19 points, followed by Fletcher with a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds. The Cardinals never led and left Atlanta with a 64-58 loss to Georgia Tech.

Leading the way for the Cardinals was Malik Williams, who finished with 16 points and eight rebounds, while David Johnson also tallied 16 points.

Devoe struggled from the field (2-for-9), but hit 6-for-7 from the free-throw line to help push the Jackets to the win. Moses Wright added 12 points, seven boards and two blocked shots.

The Cardinals are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Hokies outscored the Yellow Jackets, 9-6, in the extra period to claim the 64-61 win.

Georgia Tech jumped all over the Cardinals right from the opening tip, racing to a 12-2 lead that prompted Louisville coach Chris Mack to call a timeout just 3 1/2 minutes into the game.

Louisville has shown the ability to beat good teams on the road including the likes of Duke, while its only road defeat is an overtime setback at in-state rival Kentucky.

The officials did a lengthy video review to make sure it wasn't goaltending, finally awarding the ball to the Yellow Jackets. Go with the favorites in this spot.
