The Louisville men’s basketball team will hope to snap its three-game losing streak on Thursday night, when the Cards (16-8, 6-5) host Georgia Tech (11-12, 4-6) inside the KFC Yum! Center.

Tip-off is set for just after 7 p.m. ET.

UofL enters the game coming off losses to No. 2 Virginia last week, Florida St. on Saturday and Syracuse on Monday.
