Louisville reaches 2nd straight Sweet 16 behind Williams' double-double
DAYTON, Ohio -- The crushing full-court press wasn't getting anything done against unflappable Siena. A double-digit lead had evaporated. And, from those black folding chairs on the Louisville bench to the plastic red-and-blue seats all around the arena, it was clear to everyone that the top-seeded team was starting to panic.
• Louisville got a scare from ninth-seeded Siena, but held on to advance to the Sweet 16 for the third time in the last five years.
• Terrence Williams had 24 points and 15 rebounds, and Earl Clark added 12 points and 12 boards for the Cardinals.
• Louisville had 17 turnovers, while Siena committed just nine.
• Edwin Ubiles led Siena with 24 points (10-for-15).
