Peyton Siva Injury: Siva Leaves Big East Championship Game

After coming down awkwardly on his ankle in the first half of the Big East Championship Game, Peyton Siva left the action and hasn't returned. On the play, Siva went into stumbling into the stands after coming down from an attempted layup.

This would be a major loss for Louisville not just tonight but even more so in the NCAA Tournament.. While Rick Pitino would love to claim a Big East Title, this could be a crippling blow to the Cardinals long-term.

Siva leads the team with five and a half assists per game and ranks second on the squad with just under two steals per contest. He's really stepped up his overall game in this tournament and become a huge contributor offensively, scoring at least 13 points in every game.

His best night was Saturday evening, when Siva accompanied those 13 points with nine assists and eight rebounds to beat Notre Dame.
