Louisville held Lake scoreless for over nine minutes during a 21-0 run. Lairson also played a big role on
the defensive side of the ball constantly causing havoc in the backcourt. The Leopards stormed out to a 26-4 advantage with 4:03 left in the second quarter before taking a 28-12 lead into the locker room.
