Louisville dominated the Miami (OH) RedHawks in all fazes of the basketball game Sunday, as was expected. But there is a lot Louisville fans can learn about their team after watching this game.

The Cardinals beat the RedHawks 80-39, although it didn't even feel that close.

All 13 of Louisville's available players got quality minutes, Angel Nunez and Michael Baffour were both out with injuries.

"That's the best we've played between the Red-White scrimmages, exhibition games," Rick Pitino said after the game via GoCards.com. "Obviously, you look good when the ball goes in. We played tremendous defense."

Pitino added, "I tried playing everybody except the assistant coaches. I really tried to; we took off our pressure. You never want to scale, but you want to stop pressing."

The Cardinals head to the Battle of Atlantis tournament next. Their first game will be against Northern Iowa Thursday night at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Before they head to the Bahamas, let's take a look at five things we can take away from Louisville's win over Miami (OH).
