Louisville vs Purdue: Pregame Breakdown
The No. 14 Louisville Cardinals host the No. 15 Purdue Boilermakers tonight at 7pm in the Big 10/ACC challenge. The Cards are 6 point favorites as if now and the game can be seen on ESPN.
Purdue enters the game with a tall lineup. Caleb Swanigan is the Boilermakers’ leading scorer at 18 ppg and leading rebounder at 12 rpg. The Cardinals are going to have to shake off the awful 2nd half from the Battle for Atlantis Championship against Baylor and look for easy shots to boost their confidence.
Purdue is a very scary matchup and will likely give Louisville all it can handle for the majority of the game. I see the Cards pulling away with a late run and free throws to extend the lead to a final score of 76-64.
