The Louisville Cardinals will take on the Pittsburgh Panthers tonight, and it will be an extremely tough road matchup for Kenny Payne's squad.

Louisville has split their last 4 games to start the month of February, with wins over Georgia Tech and Florida State, with losses to Syracuse and Boston College. While Pitt has won 4 in a row and 6 of thier last 7 games. Pitt traveled to #21 Virginia last Tuesday and broke the Cavaliers 23 home game winning streak while making 14 threes against them as well.

Kenny Payne needs to win this game if he wants any chance at a year 3 in Louisville, but that doesn't seem to be very probable, as the Panthers are a bad matchup for the Cardinals. Here is everything you need to know for the ACC matchup tonight:

Skyy Clark is still out with a broken rib for the 2nd consectiive game for the Cardinals, as he is expected to be out until mid march. While Danilo Jovanovich is still listed as out with a shoulder injury. Dennis Evans, JJ Traynor, Koron Davis, and Hercy Miller are also still listed as out for the rest of the season as well.

Final Score Prediction For Louisville vs. Pitt:

This is going to be a very tough game for Louisville, as Pitt handeled them handidly at the Yum Center earlier this year. However, the Cardinals are playing much better basketball as of late, but so are the Panthers. I expect the Cardinals to try and keep it competitive early but Pitt's ability to play from the perimeter will likely overpower the weak Cardinal defense.

It will be interesting to see how Louisville fares against a team they lost by 14 to earlier in the season, but with Pitt being red hot and being at home, it is hard to see Louisville winning this one on the road.
