Louisville at Georgia Tech: Pregame Breakdown
After suffering their third loss of the season Wednesday, the 9th ranked Cardinals (12-3) travel to Georgia Tech (9-5). The game will tip off at 2pm and can be seen on the ACC Network. The Yellowjackets beat UNC by 12, then turned around and dropped their next game against Duke 110-57, which makes the UNC game appear to be more of an outlier than the 53-point thrashing Duke handed them. All that considered, the Cards stand as 13-point favorites right now, in a road ACC game that they desperately need to win in order to avoid going 0-3 to start conference play.
The Cardinals will face another team centered around their big man. Center Ben Lammers leads the Yellowjackets in scoring and rebounding at 14.2 PPG and 9.9 RPG. Anas Mahmoud should be able to take Lammers out of his game, the Cards’ length and athleticism across the board will cause this game to be a blowout. The Cards win 83-60 behind a solid team performance, especially from Deng Adel.
