The Huskies are playing the role of spoiler for a number of teams in the Big East this year, and after taking care of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish over the weekend, they’re going to try to do it again versus Louisville. This is a heck of a lot different challenge, though. The Cardinals have beaten the snot out of all of their foes that they have faced since December 4th. Those nine foes have been crushed by the average final score of 80-56. The only team that has really come anywhere close to beating the Cards has been the Kentucky Wildcats, and with all due respect to the Huskies, they just aren’t as talented as the Cats. A 64-38 win over the South Florida Bulls wasn’t all that notable for Louisville over the weekend, but what really made that game impressive is that G Russ Smith only shot 2-of-13 from the floor. Remember that Smith is the leading scorer for the team, and he was averaging over 20 points per game before this one. As well as we feel as though the Huskies have played this year, we just don’t think that they have the goods to keep up with a team that is 5-1 ATS in the last six in this series and 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games on the road.
Louisville vs. Connecticut Pick: Louisville Cardinals -6
Louisville vs. Connecticut Prediction: Louisville 78 – Connecticut 64
