No. 9 Louisville surged to a 21-point halftime lead and held on, despite Jamel Artis scoring 43 points, to beat Pitt 85-80 on Wednesday night.
Jamel Artis scored a career high 43 points as he led a Pitt second half rally that fell short, as the Panthers fell to the 14th ranked Louisville Cardinals 85-80 on Wednesday night at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville, KY.
The Panthers were down at 47-26 at halftime and trailed by as many as 26 points before they started to chip away at the Cardinals lead, getting as close as five at 81-76 with 47 seconds remaining after a Michael Young 3-pointer, but the Cardinals put the game away at the free throw line. 

Artis went 15 for 22 from the field, including 7 for 13 from the 3-point line, and scored 32 of his 43 points in the second half. Michael Young added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Panthers. No other Pitt player scored in double figures. 

Quintin Snider led the Cardinals with 22 points and had five assists and also made the foul shots that iced the game. Donovan Mitchell added 15 points and 8 rebounds and Deng Adel scored 15 points off the bench for Louisville.

The Cardinals outrebounded the Panthers 45 to 30, including a 14 to 9 margin on the offensive glass. The Cardinals also outscored Pitt 34-22 in the paint.

The Panthers will next play on Saturday when they will host the Miami Hurricanes at the Peterson Events Center.
