Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (WAVE) - #13 UofL (17-4, 5-3 ACC) shot an amazing 71% from the field in the first half, and got a career-high 29 points from Donovan Mitchell in a 106-51 win at Pittsburgh (12-8, 1-6). 

The Cards led 51-18 at halftime.

Ryan McMahon hit five three-pointers on his way to a career-high 15 points. Mitchell hit 9 of his 13 field goal attempts, including 6 of 8 three's. 

"Everything goes right for us, from a passing, shooting, defending standpoint," Rick Pitino said, adding, "and everything went wrong for them. I've experienced many times in the NBA."

The 55 point final margin was the largest ever by a road team in an ACC game.
