Louisville faces off tonight against a familiar foe on the road in the Houston Cougars. Louisville beat the Cougars handily at home just two weeks ago by a final score of 91 to 52. Louisville was lead by Wayne Blackshear’s 23 points in the first contest, but will be without the junior forward tonight. Blackshear suffered a concussion earlier this week in practice and did not travel with the team. I look for the Cardinals to handle the Cougars even without Blackshear in tonight’s match up. The Cards hope to get Chris Jones going in his third game back and are hopeful he can get to his early season form. It will be interesting to see what kind of line-ups Pitino uses tonight, we expect to see more of Mangok and possibly Anton Gill.
Game Time : 9:05 p.m.
