The No. 6 Louisville Cardinals travel to Boston, Massachusetts to take on the Eagles of Boston College today at 3 on the ACC Network. Boston College appeared to be heading in the right direction from last year’s abysmal season, but have dropped 6 games in a row entering today.
Boston College (9-14) is led by Sophomore guard Jerome Robinson at 19.7 PPG. The Eagles will need a big performance from him if they want any chance at beating the Cards today.
This isn’t a game Louisville should have trouble with. These two teams are trending in polar opposite directions, Louisville is riding the hot hand of Donovan Mitchell while both true Point Guards (Quentin Snider and Tony Hicks) are out with injuries. Mitchell is playing as well as anyone in the country right now and has the Cards establishing themselves as one of the real contenders at this point in this season. Boston College, as mentioned earlier, is currently sitting on a 6-game losing skid and I highly doubt today is the day that streak ends. Louisville is playing as well as, if not better, than anyone in the country. As long as the Cards don’t enter today’s game with their sights set on the next game at Virginia, Louisville will walk out of today’s contest with an easy win.
The Cards won’t look ahead and will handle business today by a final score of 87-68. Donovan Mitchell continues his excellent play and gets some help from a big day from Deng Adel.
