Louisville vs Omaha: Pregame Breakdown

After their closer than expected win over George Mason last Sunday, Louisville hosts Omaha tonight at 7pm with the goal of making a statement.

As of now, Louisville is a 27.5-point favorite over the visitors and rightfully so. Omaha is 0-3 and is averaging 100 points allowed to their 80 points scored so far this season. George Mason is a much better team than the one Louisville will face tonight, so the Cards shouldn’t have much trouble.

What I’m looking for tonight is a higher team assist total, fewer missed free throws, VJ King and Ray Spalding to produce offensively, and a more significant rebound-margin. This type of game shouldn’t be read into based on score (unless it’s closer than it should be), but those statistics will shed some light on the team’s ability/potential going forward.

Tonight, I also want to see Malik Williams have a similar impact his fellow freshman did against George Mason.

Prediction: Louisville 91- Omaha 67.

Go Cards!
