Why the Deacons lost

Wake’s inability to take care of the basketball cost them a good chance at a signature win against Louisville. The Deacons coughed the ball up 18 times, as opposed to the nine turnovers from the Cardinals. Wake committed six of those turnovers in the first quarter alone, a quarter which they lost 19-9. The Deacons made a run in the second quarter, to pull within four, but Louisville followed with a 10-0 run.
