UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Cards Play First Exhibition Game Thursday

11/02/2016 07:10 PM

The Louisville men’s basketball team is finishing up its preparations for Thursday’s exhibition game against Kentucky Wesleyan.

The game is scheduled to tip-off at 7 p.m. ET inside the KFC Yum! Center.

Louisville has won its last 31 straight in-season exhibition games. In fact, that streak has lasted 16 years.

The two teams met each other last season during an exhibition game. UofL won that match-up 77-68.

Rick Pitino spoke about the match-up on Wednesday afternoon.

He is hoping that the new style of offense the team is using this season leads to more points on the scoreboard.
