The Louisville basketball team is 5-0 on the season, but the Cards have been widely untested to date. The season opener against Minnesota provided a quality opponent, but Tuesday’s showdown with Ohio State presents a much tougher task.

The Buckeyes are ranked 16th in the AP Top-25, and Thad Matta’s team is loaded with talent. For UofL, it is an opportunity to make a statement, and the players say they are excited to take the court for a high-profile game.
