LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- There was plenty of red on display along the bank of the Ohio River on Saturday, a partisan crowd of nearly 10,000 braving an impending storm to watch No. 7 Louisville and 11th-ranked Colorado.
But those weren't sleigh bells ringing in Christmas cheer. Those were whistles sapping good will as they signaled 56 fouls.
Nor was there any snow glistening in the lane, just players gathered around it for a parade of 70 free throws.
