Breakdown: Louisville is unranked under Dave Padgett, who is one of the youngest (32) and tallest (6-foot-11, second only to Georgetown's Patrick Ewing) coaches in college basketball. Three months ago, Padgett replaced legendary coach Rick Pitino, who was fired for his alleged role in a $100,000 pay-for-play scheme at Louisville. ... The Cardinals' only losses are to ranked teams: No. 14 Purdue (66-57), No. 23 Seton Hall (79-77) and No. 16 Kentucky (90-61). ... Pitt visits an opponent's home court for the first time since the opener at Navy on Nov. 10. The other three road games — losses to Penn State and Oklahoma State on Nov. 20-21 and a victory against Duquesne on Dec. 1 — were played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and PPG Paints Arena. ... Pitt played nine consecutive games in Pittsburgh. ... Shamiel Stevenson is ninth among ACC freshmen in scoring and is second on team in rebounding (5.3) while shooting 51.5 percent from the field.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
