The player of the game, and other key moments and notable performances from the WVU - Louisville Big East tournament game

Despite facing constant double teams from the Louisville defense, senior forward Frank Young still managed to lead the Mountaineers throughout the game. Young finished with 19 points, six rebounds, and three steals to lead West Virginia.

One night after scorching the nets for five 3's, Young hit another trio of long-range bombs against Rick Pitino's team.

NET BURNERS

  • West Virginia handled Louisville's trademark pressure reasonably well for having not played against it this year. The Mountaineers had 12 turnovers, only four of which came after halftime.

  • Senior center Rob Summers was called for a foul in the first half on a play in which he ended up with a big cut on his head. Summers was taken to the locker room, where he received stitches before returning to the game in the second half. In Rob's absence, reserve center Jamie Smalligan came off the bench to provide 13 points and eight rebounds for the Mountaineers.

  • For the second consecutive night, a local area player had a big impact for the Blue and Gold. Last night, it was Summit, N.J. native Wellington Smith. Against the Cardinals, it was Newark product Da'Sean Butler. The All-Big East Rookie selection scored 17 points off the bench to help the West Virginia cause.
