UofL BASKETBALL | Cards Preparing for ACC Showdown

01/30/2018 03:07 PM

The Louisville men’s basketball team is getting ready to play arguably its toughest test of the year on Wednesday night.

The Cards (16-5, 6-2) will take on No. 2 Virginia (20-1, 9-0) in Charlottesville, Va. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.

The Cavaliers enter the game on a 12-game winning streak, which has helped them secure the No. 2 spot in the AP Top 25 poll for another week.

UofL Interim Head Coach David Padgett even said on Tuesday that the Cavaliers have a strong case that they should be the No. 1 team in the country:

A cornerstone of the UVA basketball team is the play of its defense. This season, the Cavaliers are the best team in the country when it comes to scoring defense, only allowing 52.1 ppg.

The “Voice of the Cavaliers,” Dave Koehn joined Sports Night on Tuesday to discuss what the most impressive thing is to him when it comes to the Virginia basketball team:

Virginia has won its last four games against Louisville.
