Louisville Leopards Basketball Net Light Blue Long Sleeve - Beatty's Sports 2017The Louisville Leopards Boys Varsity Basketball Team dismantled the host Canton South Wildcats 73-43 in the new Red Ash Gymnasium Tuesday Night. With their fifth straight victory, Louisville improves to 8-2 overall and 5-1 in the NBC.

Brandon Wahl dropped in all of his game-high 18 points during the first three quarters to lead the Leopards. The Wildcats had no answer for Spencer Hall either as he scored 8 of his 12 points in the first half. Both Davis Burick and Derek Zeller also reached double figures with 10 for Louisville.

Canton South was led by Diondre Downing who scored a team-high 12. Sean Blackmon and Silas Synder also added 6 a piece for the Wildcats.

A key difference in the contest came from beyond the arch. Louisville connected on 6 three-pointers, while Canton South did not record a single triple. The Leopards also help a significant advantage from the line making 19 of 27 (70%) free throws to the Wildcats 9 of 15 (60%).

With the win, Louisville has now downed the Wildcats in 4 straight meetings and taken 3 out of the last 4 at Canton South. The Leopards trail the all-time series 51-95 dating back to their first meeting in 1933.
