What should the Cards guard against in the NCAA Tournament

03/17/2015 08:00 PM

The Louisville Cardinals, as a 4 seed, are 9 point favorites to eliminate 13th seeded UC-Irvine. However, being favored and getting the job done, are two totally different scenarios. The Cards know they will have to deal with one of the largest men, not only in basketball, but on the planet, 7 foot 6 inch 300 pound Sophomore Mamadou Ndiaye.

The Anteaters are making their first trip to the NCAA Tournament, but they are 21-12 on the season. Besides Ndiaye, UC-Irvine also boasts leading scorer Will davis who is averaging 13 points and 7 rebounds and 7-foot-2 Ioannis Dimakopoulos. Obviously UofL will not want to challenge UC-irvine down low too often.

Friday’s game is scheduled for 4:10pm and will be televised on TBS.
