Go ahead, Louisville. Dance away.
The NCAA tournament's top team had a few early missteps Friday, but uncoiled its full-court press in the second half and rolled to a 74-54 victory over Morehead State that completed 25 years of perfection by No. 1 seeds.
Louisville (29-5) will play either Ohio State or Siena in the second round on Sunday in the Midwest Regional.
With the win, No. 1 seeds improved to 100-0 against No. 16s since the tournament expanded in 1985. There have been a few close calls, and Morehead State (21-16) kept up for a half.
Samardo Samuels led Louisville with 15 points. Terrence Williams, who danced a little prematurely at midcourt before the game, added 13 points and nine rebounds. Kenneth Faried had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Morehead State.
