The slumping West Virginia Mountaineers welcomed in the Louisville Cardinals to the WVU Coliseum in the hopes to end their losing skid and are on their way with a 44-37 lead at halftime. The 'Eers hold a significant 23-13 rebounding advantage in the first half and if they can keep that up, it should go a long way in winning the game. Deniz Kilicli currently leads West Virginia in scoring, picking up 15 points and 3 rebounds in the first half.
For the Cardinals, three players share the team lead in scoring picking up eight points. Chris Smith, Peyton Siva, and Wayne Blackshear off the bench all put down eight points with Smith and Blackshear combining to go four of six from three-point land.
