Louisville and Kentucky: Two Different Reactions About Making the Sweet 16
Louisville and Kentucky will meet on Friday night in the Sweet 16 in Indianapolis, IN. We all know that already. When the brackets came out, everyone knew this had a realistic chance of happening. And now here we are, just a few days away from Indianapolis not knowing what they got themselves into when they said they would host another Regional.
The Cards and Cats took two different paths to get to this point. Louisville played against a team that resembles them and knew their every move, and they escaped at the end. Then they battled St. Louis in a defensive game and scored enough points to pull away late. Kentucky played a very bad Kansas State team that will probably be playing at the YMCA next week. Then they played the undefeated Wichita State shockers in a very exciting game that was back and forth and they won at the end.
Two teams heading to the Sweet 16. Two of the most storied programs in all of college basketball. Two very different reactions about winning an NCAA Tournament game in the Round of 32.
Russ Smith: “The Sweet 16 is nice, but I don’t think we celebrate Sweet 16’s in this program.”
Luke Hancock: “We’re ready to go to the next game. This isn’t our goal, this isn’t our end all. We’re happy to be here and we’re blessed to be here, but we want to keep winning games.”
Montrezl Harrell: “We’re not in Dallas. What is there to celebrate?”
CSZ’s Steve Rummage summed it up pretty well…
