Providence was honoring the 1987 Final Four appearance since it's the 25th anniversary this season. Providence honored Louisville head coach Rick Pitino by creaming the Louisville Cardinals with a final score of 90-59
This is a Louisville team playing without one of their McDonald's All-Americans (Wayne Blackshear). Most of the knowledgable sportswriters commented early in the season that they would not have ranked Louisville that high knowing how injured the team was. Once they started Big East conference play, they only had 1 win (road game against St. John's). They lost at home to Georgetown and Notre Dame. They lost on the road to Kentucky and got CRUSHED by a Providence team that had yet to win a single game in Big East play.
Louisville doesn't exist? Maybe.
