LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jamel Artis was overcome by frustration in a game that should have been filled with celebration.

He scored a career-high 43 points, including 32 in the final 20 minutes, but Pitt could not comeback from a dreadful first half in a 85-80 loss to No. 14 Louisville on Wednesday night at the KFC Yum! Center.
