Cards blow opportunity at Seton Hall

Louisville (13-5, 3-2) blew several double-digit leads Saturday night in a disappointing 92-82 loss to Seton Hall in New Jersey.

Jeremy Hazell scored a career-high 29 points -- including eight 3-pointers -- and Seton Hall overcame a 14-point deficit in the second half to beat Louisville 92-82 on Saturday night.

Brian Laing added 25 points for the Pirates (12-6, 2-3 in Big East), who made nearly 63 percent of their shots in the second half, going 15-for-24 from the field.

Jerry Smith had 25 points to lead the Cardinals (13-5, 3-2), who had their four-game winning streak snapped despite having four players finish in double figures.

Louisville appeared to be in command early on, but the Pirates rallied late in the first half and only trailed 45-43 at the break. The Cardinals then started the second half with a 20-8 run before the Pirates started their furious comeback.
