03/03/2017 07:45 PM
The #8 Louisville Cardinals (23-7, 11-6) face the #19 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (23-7, 12-5) Saturday.
Tip-off is set for 2:07 p.m. ET inside the KFC Yum! Center.
This will be the second meeting of the season between the two teams. Notre Dame beat UofL 77-70 on January 4 in South Bend, In.
The Cards are coming off an 88-81 loss to Wake Forest on Wednesday night, while the Irish are riding a six-game winning streak heading into Saturday’s match-up.
The ACC battle will be extremely important when it comes to seeding for the conference tournament.
Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff caught up with “The Voice of the Irish,” Jack Nolan, on Friday and asked him which Louisville players Notre Dame must focus on stopping Saturday:
UofL fans are encouraged to wear red and to be in their seats early for a pregame ceremony, which will recognize the Cards’ three veterans, graduate transfer guard Tony Hicks, senior center Mangok Mathiang and senior guard David Levitch.
