08:37 AM ET 02.27 | In making their way to 10 conference wins, Louisville may have exposed its own weakness. [Rick Pitino] is in an interesting spot. In general, you're supposed to play to your strengths. And this team's strength is half-court defense. ... But the half-court game is a losing proposition for his offense. The later you get U of L into the shot clock, the better your chances for a stop. Opponents know this. Watching the past few games, and looking ahead at the postseason, Pitino after Sunday's game essentially acknowledged he's going to have to play away from the team's greatest strength and extend its defense full-court in hopes of generating more offense. "We keep getting caught in these slow-down half-court games," Pitino said.
