Arizona went into the Louisville game with hope of continuing the dream run.
That hope didn't last long.
Louisville got out to a fast start and never looked back, defeating Arizona 103-64 on Friday.
The only ray of hope that Arizona had was the fact that Louisville had not shot too well from the line or field going into the Arizona game.
However, the Cardinals shot 92 percent from the charity stripe and 57 percent from the field and it gave Arizona little chance to even be in the game.
Arizona's Chase Budinger did his best to keep Arizona in the game, but he obviously could not do it on his own. He finished with 22 points and was the only consistent player for the UA.
Jordan Hill, on the other hand, ended his career at Arizona in extremely disappointing fashion. He finished 6-18 for 14 points and 11 rebounds, but his defense may have been the most disappointing aspect.
At the end of the day, this is what should have been expected. Sure, the margin of loss was much bigger than Arizona fans expected, but Louisville was always the better team.
Now the attention will turn to the coaching search and a lot should be known by the end of next week.
Season comes to end
