SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Louisville's homegrown upper classmen proved too grown for Notre Dame in a double overtime tug-of-war Tuesday night.
Junior Ray Spalding scored a career-high 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, while senior and fellow Louisville native Quentin Snider matched a career high with 22 points as the Cardinals pulled out an 82-78 win over the Irish to move into sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"In the second half, our experience really helped us, our experienced guys," Cardinal coach David Padgett said. "I thought (freshman) Jordan Nwora got us back in the game in the first half, but our experienced guys played like they've been through these battles before when the game got down to the end."
