Tray Woodall’s return was supposed to come with a victory. Storybook endings don’t happen in real life like you see on the big screen.

Louisville silenced the Oakland Zoo in defeating the Pittsburgh Panthers 73-62 at the Petersen Events Center.

Woodall’s return flopped, scoring zero points and dishing out two assists.

Kyle Kuric was the man who played well in his return, but nobody talked about it. He scored a game-high 21 points on 7-12 shooting.

Ashton Gibbs and Lamar Patterson scored a team-high 14 points to lead the Panthers.
