Former Messalonskee High School standout Nick Mayo led his Eastern Kentucky team with 15 points but the Colonels were no match for #11 Louisville. The Cardinals beat EKU 87-56 Saturday afternoon.

The 6-foot-9 Mayo filled the Colonels stat sheet with those 15 points, plus four rebounds, four assists and a block against Rick Pitino's team.

The loss drops EKU to 6-6.

Mayo, a sophomore, was the Ohio Valley Conference Rookie of the Year last year and his 18.9 PPG this year leads the team.

11th ranked Louisville is now 10-1.

EKU and Louisville have played 74 times over the years but Saturday's game was the first since 2004.
