To say Florida lost it more than Louisville won it is quite extreme. I dont see any mention of the horrible foul on Siva after the UF player tripped. Or the even worse technical assessed to Pitino for yelling AT HIS OWN player.
No mention either of Louisville's biggest key to the game. At about the 8 minute mark they switch Chane and Gorgui. Chane was the man who would switch on the ball screens allowing Dieng to set up camp under the basket where (as we've seen all tournament) he feasts. Russ was his typical self and Louisville clawed hard to get back into this game. There is no way around that.
I am saying that UF made a lot of costly turnovers that were unforced. It's not like they were from Louisville's press, it was just bad passes and dumb mistakes. Even Pintino said UF played better, so it's not extreme at all.
The technical foul was bad after hearing that Pitino was yelling at the player, not the ref. Also the foul on Siva was legit. It was a foul. But regardless, UF blew it.
