Six different Leopards scored in the first quarter as they opened up a 22-3 lead when the period ended.

Chambers split a pair from the line and then made a layup via a long pass from Jones to put Louisville in front 60-53 with 41 seconds remaining. On their next trip down, Gronow hit a two and Chambers stole the ensuing inbound pass. 

From there the game turned into a free throw contest. The Leopards would bury 11 of 15 free throws in the fourth quarter to ice the game. They finished 18 of 22 (82%) from the charity line for the game. The Cardinals were even more efficient from the line making 14 of 16 (88%) shots from the stride.

Cardinal Mooney was led by Pelini who made a pair of three-pointers and scored 8 of his team-high 14 points in the fourth quarter. Devon Jenkins also scored all of his 10 points in the second half and Thomas Fire ended the night with 9.

The Leopards are now 2-0 against the Cardinals all-time. Louisville defeated Mooney 75-58 last season. The victory also marked the 160th career win for Head Coach Tom Siegfried.

UP NEXT: The Leopards will next challenge the Woodridge Bulldogs on Saturday, January 18 as part of the Spectrum Orthopedics Classic. Game time is set for 7:30 PM from North Canton Hoover High School.
