LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Louisville junior forward Fransisco Garcia was named the national player of the week by ESPN.com as well as the Conference USA Player of the Week for games ending Dec. 12.

Garcia produced a career high five steals, matched a career-best with eight rebounds and added 19 points and four assists as the Cardinals won 74-70 at Florida. It was only the third non-conference loss in the last 49 games for the Gators at home over the last six seasons. Garcia has been a double-figure scorer in all six games this year and in 47 games for his career. He is 81 points short of becoming Louisville's 54th 1,000 point career scorer.

Garcia and the Cardinals face North Carolina A & T -- a team coached by former U of L player and assistant coach Jerry Eaves -- on Tuesday at 7:38 p.m. in Freedom Hall.
