    Some UofL victories and records between 2011- 2015 have been vacated as a penalty imposed by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. Those revisions will be reflected following the season.

      Spalding Shines — Ray Spalding has pulled down at least eight rebounds in 19 games this season, totaling 12 points and six rebounds at NC State in his last game. An All-ACC Honorable Mention selection, he blocked his 100th career shot against Virginia last Thursday and needs eight rebounds for 600 in his career, and needs nine points for 750 career points. Spalding scored a career-high 23 points with 12 rebounds at Notre Dame on Jan. 16. He is fifth in the ACC and 44th in the nation in rebounding, averaging 8.8 per game -- nearly double his average from last season (5.5). Spalding is also among the league leaders in steals (11th, 1.45 per game), blocked shots (ninth, 1.68) and offensive rebounding (third, 3.19 per game, 27th in the nation). He has improved his free throw percentage to 63 percent this season, up from 54.5 last year. He has 10 double-doubles this season (sixth-most in the ACC) and 12 in his career. Spalding is one of 34 Louisville players to have more than 10 career double-doubles.  Lately -- Deng Adel and Ray Spalding were recognized as honorable mention All-ACC selections while Anas Mahmoud was named to the ACC All-Defensive team. Deng Adel led the Cardinals with 20 points at NC State, his 22nd straight double-figure scoring game and his second 20-point effort in the last five games. He has averaged 15.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists after returning from missing two games with an ankle injury. Louisville has committed 15 turnovers in three of its last four games after going nine games without that many. The Cardinals’ 12.1 turnovers per game are the 11th most in the ACC. Anas Mahmoud blocked five shots at NC State in his last game, his sixth game this year and eighth of his career with five or more blocks. He has blocked at least three shots in 14 games this year. Quentin Snider’s career-high seven three-point field goals at Virginia Tech were the most for a Louisville player since Preston Knowles hit seven vs. Syracuse on Feb. 12, 2011. Snider matched a career-high with 22 points and handed out six assists against the Hokies. He leads the ACC in three- point field goal percentage in conference only statistics, connecting on 46 percent (40-of-87 threes). Ray Spalding has made 56.8 percent of his field goals in ACC games, third in the ACC. He has made at least half of his shots in 16 of 18 ACC games. Louisville is 18-3 when shooting better from the field than its opponent, 17-3 when committing fewer turnovers than its opponent, and 14-2 when making eight or more three-pointers in a game. Over the past 14 years (since 2005), Louisville has a collective 67-29 record during the month of March (.697), including 34-13 over the last seven years (.723, since 2012). Louisville has held a rebounding advantage over just four of its last 13 opponents, including being outrebounded by seven or more on six occasions in those 13 game (38-30 rebounding advantage at NC State in its last game). Louisville held a 44-27 rebounding advantage at Virginia Tech, a game after being beaten 44-30 on the boards at Duke -- a change in margin of 31 in two games. The Cardinals’ +17 rebound margin vs. Virginia Tech matched a season-high and marked the fourth double-digit rebounding advantage of the season. Louisville’s bench has contributed 30 or more points in seven games this season, including four of the last eight (23.9 average bench points in last eight games). UofL suffered a 67-66 gu
