As we continue our look at some of the great moments for Louisville basketball at Freedom Hall, we go all the way back to 2009. The Cards were ranked third in the country to start the year, but scuffled out of the gate for an 8-3 start as their in-state rival Kentucky Wildcats were coming to town.
Led by the legendary Billy Gillispie, the Wildcats were 11-3 and had two legit stars in Jodie Meeks and Patrick Patterson. A Kentucky win would have surely driven the Louisville fan base into complete disarray. The game went back and forth and with 23 seconds left, the Cards had the ball and a chance to win.
