This Friday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the Pittsburgh Panthers and the Louisville Cardinals. This will take place at the KFC Yum! Center.
Louisville Looks To Remain Number One
The Louisville Cardinals have looked like the best team in college basketball up to this point in the season. After starting the season in the top-five, Louisville was finally able to move up to number one in the AP Poll after Duke lost earlier this week. In addition, Louisville was also able to showcase just how good it is as a team when #4 Michigan came into town earlier this week. In that game, Louisville dominated from start-to-finish as it eventually won by 15 points. Now, the Cardinals will look for another easy home win in order to maintain its current spot in the rankings.
Leading the Cardinals offensively is junior forwardJordan Nwora who has looked amazing this season. He is averaging a team-high 21.9 points per game along with 7.5 rebounds. In addition, he has also been efficient as he is shooting 48.4% from the floor. He is also shooting 85.7% from the free-throw line so he can help put a game out of reach if he is given the opportunity.
Louisville's most underrated player is senior centerSteven Enoch who has looked great so far this season. He is averaging 11.1 points per game along with 8.1 rebounds. In addition, he is also averaging 1.3 blocks per game so he has the ability to alter a ton of shots in the paint as a solid rim protector.
