Louisville Vs. Notre Dame: Irish Struggle In First Half, Down At Halftime, 35-19

There's another upset brewing in the 2012 Big East Tournament. The No.1 Syracuse Orange lost to Cincinnati in the previous game, and in the late one the No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish are losing at halftime to the No. 7 Louisville Cardinals, 35-19. The Cardinals went on a 26-4 run to end the first half while the Irish failed to make a bucket over the last 12:44 of the frame.

As expected by now, Louisville's Peyton Siva is the star of this game. He has scored 11 points, pulled down seven boards and dished out the ball for five assists. Gorgui Dieng has put in 10 points and grabbed four boards.

Notre Dame is shooting 24.1 percent from the field (7-of-29), including 1-of-11 from beyond the arc. Jack Cooley leads the team with five points and seven assists.
