LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino isn't worried about a letdown after the big victory over Kentucky.
That's because the No. 4 Cardinals (12-1) have something to prove in Wednesday's Big East Conference opener against Providence (8-4).
Louisville's 90-59 loss at Providence last January was the Cardinals' worst of the season. Pitino credits the Friars for playing well in that game while adding that nothing went right for Louisville in an ``embarrassing'' loss.
On Saturday, Louisville beat Kentucky 80-77. Now the Cardinals must put state rivalries aside and shift their attention to the most important part of the season - the 18-game Big East schedule.
