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.
