Coach Brad Brownell and the Clemson basketball team travel to Louisville, Kentucky to take on the #5 Louisville Cardinals, with tipoff at 2pm. This matchup at the Yum Center presents a tall task for the Tigers.
Louisville (16-3) is on a five game winning streak, including a win over #8 Duke. Coach Chris Mack’s team seems to be hitting that mid season stride, and clicking on all cylinders.
The Tigers (10-8) look to continue their recent trend of playing the role of “giant killers” after impressive back-to-back wins against both UNC and Duke. In the Tigers last outing, they defeated Wake Forest at Littlejohn Coliseum 71-68.
The key to the Tigers pulling off an upset will be improved board play and creating turnovers. The staunch, aggressive defense, a hallmark of Brad Brownell led teams, will need to be on full display for a chance at their 11th win of the season. Good luck to The Tigers, and bring home a victory!
