UofL BASKETBALL | Cards Preparing to Host No. 1 Virginia on Senior Night

02/28/2018 05:33 PM

The Louisville men’s basketball team is getting ready to host the No. 1 team in the country on Thursday night when it welcomes Virginia into the KFC Yum! Center.

Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET.

The Cards lost to Virginia 74-64 in Charlottesville, Va. on Jan. 31.

Thursday’s game will be important for the Cards not only because a win would be a big for their tournament resume, but it would also be a big for seniors Anas Mahmoud and Quentin Snider. That’s because Thursday is “Senior Night.”
