Whether it was because of the atmosphere — a sea of white packed inside the KFC Yum! Center — the pressure that accompanied their newly-acquired No. 4 ranking or simply the length and activity of Louisville’s defense, the Wolverines just couldn’t buy a basket. After going 2-for-18 from the field in the opening 12 minutes, the Michigan men’s basketball team trailed, 18-5. In enemy territory, playing the top-ranked team in the country, the No. 4 Wolverines (7-1) couldn’t overcome their slow start, dropping their first game of the season, 58-43, to the the No. 1 Cardinals (8-0).
