It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Louisville ended the season on Saturday with a solid home win on senior day against the #19 ranked Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish.

Louisville secured the double-bye in the ACC tournament with the win as the 4th seed. Louisville was led by Donovan Mitchell with 20 points. Snider chipped in 17 points. Mangok Mathiang, in his last game, notched a double-double with 18 points and 11 boards.

Louisville will tip Thursday at 2:00 PM. The winner of Clemson/N.C. State will play Duke in the second round and the winner of Clemson/N.C. State and Duke will play Louisville.

I missed this last year so much.

Wake Forest Preview

Wednesday night at 9:00 the Cardinals will head into Winston-Salem to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Let’s take a closer look at the opponent.

Record-16-12(7-9) 1oth in the ACC

John Collins leads the Demon Deacons in scoring 19.1 PPG. Followed by Bryant Crawford with 15.5 PPG.

Collins also leads Wake Forest in rebounding with 9.8 RPG.

 

Wake Forest is coming off a victory against Pittsburgh. Louisville will look to ruin the Demon Deacons senior night in hopes on clinching the double-bye in ACC Tournament.

Louisville Bounces Back Against Cuse

Louisville got back on the right track with a 20 point victory over ACC foe, Syracuse. Louisville was led by Donovan Mitchell, who led the way with 25 points. Ray Spalding also had a productive game with 18 points and 11 boards in his first start in a while.

Louisville had a pretty good day shooting the basketball. 57% from the field and 45% from three-point range. Louisville played pretty solid and didn’t seem like the loss at North Carolina lingered around.

Syracuse started to full court press and began to dwindle the Cardinals lead from 23 points. The Orange got the lead down to 11 but was never able to get over the that hump as Deng Adel had a period in the second half scoring points in bunches for Louisville, as he broke the Syracuse press and attacked the rim. Adel ended the game with 17 coming off the bench for Louisville.

Louisville is tied with Florida State for second in the ACC as they chase the double-bye in the ACC tournament. Louisville heads to Wake Forest on March 1st for a show down with the Demon Deacons. Tip is at 9:00 PM.
