Louisville pushes past Oregon despite most of team feeling ill

Top seeded Louisville punched their ticket to the Elite Eight by disposing of No. 12 seed Oregon, 77-69, Friday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Louisville's Russ Smith led all scorers with 31 points, which tied his career high, but was he and the rest of Big East champion Cardinals playing under the weather?

The answer is yes, according to quotes provided via Twitter by Louisville beat writers after the game.

Smith, starting point guard Peyton Siva, and starting power forward Chane Behanan are among the notable Cardinals who are allegedly battling illnesses.

Pitino's bunch will have to rest up quick as they are set to play Sunday afternoon for the chance to advance to the Final Four in Atlanta.
