David Padgett on whether Louisville deserves an NCAA tournament bid: "Without a doubt. If you look at our overall body of work, we haven't done anything wrong. People used to put a lot of weight on bad losses, and we don't have any of those."

FINAL: Virginia 75, Louisville 58. The Cardinals now have to wait. Two things stand out to me: 5-13 vs. Quadrants 1 and 2. And even if it's not an official criteria anymore, they're 0-11 against RPI top-50 teams. No marquee wins. Predictive metrics like them, though.

Mamadi Diakite has added some consistent scoring to his repertoire in the last few games. Nine points in each of the last two games, 10 points in 12 minutes so far today. We'll just pretend the airballed jump-hook didn't happen.

Louisville showed some fight toward the end of the half. Hit a couple 3s, got a couple stops. Looked like Virginia was going to blow the game open, but Louisville stayed within striking distance. Virginia up 11 at halftime.

BPI thinks Louisville is safe even with a loss. The Cardinals are currently 40th in SOR, 31st in BPI, 32nd in KenPom, and 46th in RPI. Our metrics also agree that Virginia not getting a No. 1 seed would be a shock regardless of what the Cavaliers do in the ACC tournament.
