Louisville 77, BC 69: Deng Adel had all 18 points and 10 rebounds after halftime, including a late free throw that helped the Cardinals (15-4, 5-1) hold off the Eagles (13-7, 3-4), in an Atlantic Coast conference game in Louisville.
Jerome Robinson had 19 points, Ky Bowman 16 and Nik Popovic and Chatman 12 each for BC.

The Eagles weren’t done and stormed back within 71-69 on Jordan Chatman’s 3 with 33 seconds left. After King’s two free throws made it a four-point game, Chatman’s long-range attempt bounced off the rim and out of bounds.
Ryan McMahon then made two from the line before King made two more to seal the tense win. Adel’s free throw was the first of 10 Louisville made to close the game.
