The Louisville Cardinals return to the court this evening to take on the Hartford Hawks, who hail from West Hartford, Connecticut and will bring their 1-1 record into the KFC Yum! Center. On paper, this is one that the Cards should win, but as we have already seen in this young college basketball season, anything can happen. Don’t take anything for granted.
I won’t begin to hype up Hartford like they are Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State, or any other powerhouse that Louisville faces this season. But here are some things to look for tonight…
