With Virginia Tech in the rear-view mirror, next for the Big Blue Nation is a trip to the Big Easy for a game against UCLA at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, home of the NBA’s Pelicans.

The Cats (9-1) have been pouring on the points as of late, averaging 92 points per game in their last five, but the Bruins (8-3) don’t mind running either; they’re averaging 83 points per game on the season and have broken the 100-point mark three times already.

In their last meeting, the two faced-off in the NCAA tournament for a trip to the Elite 8. The Cats came away with that one, winning it 86-75, led behind De’Aaron Fox’s 39 points.

Lachlan McLean of ESPN Louisville joined KSTV for an early break-down of this year’s game:
