LOUISVILLE (AP) — Rick Pitino says his team owes fans an apology after the Cardinals were blown out by Western Kentucky on Sunday.
Pitino blamed Louisville's 68-54 loss on poor practice habits and his team's inability to match Western Kentucky's intensity. In a note published on his website www.rickpitino.com on Monday, Pitino said his team's lethargic performance in practice translated into an uninspired game against the Hilltoppers.

Louisville shot just 27% from the field and was dominated in the lane, getting outrebounded 58-46 and outscored 24-18. The loss dropped the Cardinals from No. 3 to No. 11 in both this week's USA TODAY/ESPN coaches' poll and the Associated Press poll

Louisville hosts Indiana State, Ohio and Lamar in the inaugural Marques Maybin Classic at Freedom Hall this weekend.
