The Leopards would outscore the Knights 27-10 in the second half to take the game. LHS used a 15-8 third quarter to take the lead and then held Aquinas to without a field goal in the fourth quarter in which they held a 12-2 edge.

The Knights (1-4) were led by Moses O’Neal who scored a team-high 11 points. Cadence Brown and Ben Wheeler both reached double figures with 10 each as well for St. Thomas.

This was the first Battle for Louisville on the hardwood since February 8, 1992 when the Leopard defeated the Knights 79-59 at LHS. Louisville now leads the all-time series 2-1 with the only St. Thomas win over the Leopards a 62-49 tournament win on February 23, 1968. This was Louisville’s first ever trip to Aquinas in boys varsity basketball.
