Not In The Cards: Louisville Snaps Home Streak At 28

Chilly shooting, poor ball security and an inspired second half defensive
effort by the visitors put an end to Florida State's 28-game home winning
streak Wednesday night at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

Streak Snapped: Florida State falls to Louisville 73-69

Last season, FSU jumped out to a 14-0 lead on Louisville. This year it was
just a nine point lead before the Cardinals got on the board. But just like
last year, Louisville fought back.

No. 23 FSU falls to Louisville, ending 28-game home winning streak

Florida State was unable to overcome a sluggish second half against
Louisville despite a late push from forwards Terance Mann and Braian Angola.

Mann not enough by himself against Louisville

Louisville snaps No. 23 FSU's 28-game home win streak

After Louisville had a five-point lead in the final minute, Braian Angola
made a 3 to pull FSU within 71-69. The Seminoles had a final chance to tie
after a Cardinals' turnover, but Terance Mann missed a layup with a second
remaining. McMahon then made both free throws to put the game away.

Louisville basketball rallies to snap FSU's 28-game home winning streak
