The 11th ranked Louisville Cardinals travel to Virginia to face the #4 Cavaliers. The game will tip tonight at 8:30 and can be seen on ESPN. Virginia enters the game favored by 5.5 points over the Cards.
If you think this game preview lacks the excitement that my last few have had, you’re right. I’m ready to cheer on my Cards until I lose my voice, but I’m not ready for this season to end.
Whether or not we’re all okay with that doesn’t matter, because by the end of the night we will be bidding farewell to one of the most likable teams in recent memory. As unfair and unjust as it is, this team deserves a fanbase that supports them until that final buzzer hits 0:00 and beyond, and that’s what we will give them. The Cards WILL win at Virginia today, I don’t know why I just have a feeling. Louisville will win 65-61 and come home champions regardless of the postseason ban. This is it CardNation, the day we’ve dreaded is finally here. Admire this team’s perseverance and heart because they’ll wear both on their sleeves tonight. Go Cards!
