The story line was father versus son on the coaching sidelines.  A first for Dad, Rick, and son, Richard.

And only the 17th time it has happened between father and son coaches in college basketball history.

It was truly a family affair, as father and son squared off for the first time as head coaches.

Note the score stand:  Dad 1  Son 0  after the # 5 ranked  Louisville Cardinals easily took down an outmanned FIU squad.

Stars for the Cards?  Plenty, starting with Billy Minardi Classic game MVP Peyton Siva, who posted new career highs with  5 3-pointers and   12 assists, for his first double-double since the season opener.

Also stepping up big was Wayne Blackshear , who scored 15 of his game high 18 points in the first half, include hitting 3 of his first 5 3 point attempts.  Blackshear has been hot behind the arc recently, hitting 9 of his last 19 attempts.

Wayne Blackshear skied for this slamma-jamma, but showed a nice touch from the outside, tying a career best 18 pts.

Russ Smith added 14 and the team shot well as a group, tying a season high with 12 3 pointers.

Russ went for 14 and is contiuing to show much better control and decision -making--with some sharp assists too.

On now to a showdown with a depleted , but always dangerous Western Kentucky squad.  And then…the 12/29 tilt with Big Blue here at the Bucket.

Get ready…

Oh yeah, Harrell jammed one behind his head too --that got a shout from the crowd.

Some of the football team--incuding #5 himself Teddy Bridgewater--dropped by with the Big East trophy and to give it shout-out to the fans about the Sugar Bowl.
