PITTSBURGH -- A young Louisville team has improved steadily all season and is in position for a first-round bye in the Big East tournament. Still, coach Rick Pitino couldn't believe what he was hearing about the Cardinals.Nothing. No buzz. No hype -- at least until now.David Padgett and Derrick Caracter neutralized Aaron Gray inside while Louisville's 2-3 zone defense was taking away Pittsburgh's (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today; No. 7 AP) outside shooting, and the Cardinals dominated both halves to rout the Panthers 66-53 Monday night.
