INDIANAPOLIS -- Rick Pitino enjoyed watching Friday night's game almost as much as his Louisville players enjoyed celebrating.Fun-loving forward Terrence Williams danced on the sideline. Guard Edgar Sosa posed for the television camera. Even backup Kyle Kuric dunked. For the top-seeded team in the NCAA tournament, this was more fun than a team scrimmage or a pickup game.
• Louisville recorded its largest win in NCAA tournament history and handed the Wildcats their worst loss in tournament history.
• Rick Pitino improved to 9-0 in Sweet 16 games and Louisville is 17-1 as a No. 1 or 2 seed.
• Louisville had 10 steals and 29 assists.
• Earl Clark led five Cardinals in double figures with 19.
