Looking to solidify their tournament bid, Louisville travels to Virginia Tech to take on the Hokies at 1pm on CBS.
The last time these two teams met, Louisville won in the Yum! Center by a score of 94-86. As far as tomorrow goes, if Louisville gives up 86 points the outcome will not favor the Cards. Louisville’s offense has looked stagnant and forced, while their defense has been shotty (no, not a typo) at best.
Louisville desperately needs to win this game, for many reasons. The Cardinals are searching for answers, while most teams are hitting their stride – time is running out. With 3 games left, Louisville finds itself at 18-10 searching to get to the 20-win mark for bid assurance.
I appreciate this team very much. They’ve paid for many mistakes they didn’t commit and are still fighting despite the odds being stacked against them. After this game, Louisville will be back on track with a solid road win.
Louisville 85 – Virginia Tech 79
