The Louisville Leopards Boys Varsity Basketball dominated from start to finish in a 79-39 win over the visiting Minerva Lions Tuesday Night at Louisville High School. With the victory, Louisville is now 11-3 overall and 6-2 against the NBC.
Chris Libertore and Drew Noble each scored a game-high 15 points to lead the Leopards. Jake Pukys also reached double figures with 10 and both Jake Adams & Brody Hahn fueled the Louisville offense with 5 assists each.
The Leopards held the Lions scoreless from the field for the first 10:30 of the contest. In the process, Louisville soared out to a 29-3 advantage and never looked back.

With the win, Leopards Head Coach Tom Siegfried had a very Happy Birthday in tying Bill Eddins for the most coaching wins all-time in Louisville Leopards Boys Basketball Program history. Siegfried is now 101-89 since he took over as Head Coach in the 2007-08 season and can stand alone atop the all-time coaching wins list with a victory over West Branch Friday.
