NEW YORK (AP) — Kyle Kuric scored 20 points, Peyton Siva added 18 and Louisville forced No. 9 Marquette into a season-high 26 turnovers, advancing to the Big East tournament semifinals with an 84-71 victory Thursday night.

Wearing a new set of bright orange, neon-looking uniforms, the seventh-seeded Cardinals flashed their quick hands all over the court and held Big East Player of the Year Jae Crowder to 10 points in 31 foul-plagued minutes. Russ Smith and Chane Behanan each scored 12 points for Louisville (24-9), which plays No. 23 Notre Dame or South Florida on Friday night.

Darius Johnson-Odom had 23 points to pace No. 2 seed Marquette (25-7), blown out by Louisville in the quarterfinals last year as well. The Golden Eagles have never made it past the tournament semifinals since joining the Big East for the 2005-06 season.

Siva had another outstanding all-around game at point guard, piling up eight rebounds, six assists and four steals.
