Game Thread: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Louisville Cardinals

Loading Scores

Rick Pitino brings his Cardinals into the Coliseum today for another (the last time?) tilt on the hardwood. After some early/mid-season struggles, Louisville has seemed to have figured things out and enter this game on a roll having dumped UConn earlier in the week and fairly well rested (kind of reminds you of Notre Dame, in that regard, doesn't it?). WVU on the other hand has just lost said heartbreaker to Notre Dame, and has lost 4 of the last five. Despite the down turn, the Mountaineers were in all but one of those games and could have won, maybe should have won several of them. This series has always had entertaining/close games and today definitely has the potential for another good one.
