Game Day: Louisville vs. Western

Has it been forever since Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals played a basketball game or what?

The Cards take on Western Kentucky at 3 p.m. today in Nashville. Watch for the adrenalin to be flowing for the Hilltoppers, playing over their heads for a bit. Wait it out, get it out of their system, then overpower and embarrass them.

Believe it or not, WKU holds a 38-33 edge in the series. Hard to imagine, unacceptable.

The Hilltoppers’ last victory over a top five team came on November 15, 2001, 64-52 over #4 Kentucky in Rupp Arena.

One thought on “Game Day: Louisville vs. Western”

  1. Most days I hope that the Hilltoppers do well, having spent my under grad years there. Today is not one of those days. GO CARDS, BEAT WESTERN! (Still love “Big Red” the mascot, though)
