The No. 7 Louisville Cardinals travel to Chapel Hill for a top-10 ACC matchup with the No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels tonight at 9pm on ESPN. The line currently stands at UNC-8, after it opened with UNC giving Louisville 5.5 points.
While the fact that both teams are in the top-10 makes for a good headline, there’s so much more to tonight’s game. The winner of tonight’s game will likely win the ACC regular season crown and a 1-seed in the NCAA tournament. Needless to say, there’s a lot on the line for both teams tonight, but the loser is in no way in bad shape either. A win in Chapel Hill will be difficult, but not impossible.
Here are some videos from after the game from Roy Williams, Marcus Paige, Justin Jackson, Joel Berry, and Isaiah Hicks. Louisville defeated North Carolina 71-65.

I am sure you remember Justin Jackson from the last time Louisville and Cincinnati played. The picture aboveperfectly sums up the way I picture him. All he did was flex and make a scowl. He played some basketball, but mainly just acted like a fool. Apparently his behavior is not only accepted with the students of UC, it is celebrated. This Saturday when the Cards play the Bearcats, the Cincinnati fans will be having a white-out promotion. The students will be wearing these shirts.
Montrezl Harrell is NOT impressed.
