Louisville basketball’s loss to Georgia Tech could serve as a turning point this season. Let’s examine some potential lineup changes that could maximize efficiency.
The frustrating slow starts for the Louisville basketball program continue to be one of the biggest question marks for the Cards as they head down the stretch of ACC.
Wednesday night’s 12-2 and 16-5 start really set the momentum in Georgia Tech’s favor as they led wire-to-wire for the win against the no. 5 ranked team in the country.
We’ve seen it time and time again during the ACC schedule for Louisville, including games against Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, and of course, Georgia Tech. Despite finding a way to win all of those games, the trend of getting behind and having to come back makes me believe that something in the starting five isn’t working.
It starts with defense. Louisville’s had several games where their slow starts can be attributed to shots not falling early on and that impacting the flow of the offense and rhythm of the team. But more than anything, Louisville’s defense has been a huge issue.
With that being said, it may be time to at least consider a change for the Cardinals in the starting lineup. Let’s take a look at who could ultimately wind up starting for the Cards.
