Harrell and Louisville earned key wins in ACC play this week. Against Boston College on Wednesday night, he scored only 12 points but registered a game-high two blocks in the contest. But his best performance of the week came on Saturday against No. 13 North Carolina. Harrell powered for 22 points and energized a Cardinals attack which climbed from an 18-point deficit to beat UNC in overtime. The win was Louisville's first against the Tar Heels since 1999 and the first for coach Rick Pitino. Louisville has now won three consecutive games after losing to Duke on Jan 17.
