Cards Prep For Arizona in Sweet Sixteen

The University of Louisville men’s basketball team plays tomorrow night in the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Tournament.  The Cards take on twelve-seed Arizona, after wins last weekend against Morehead State and Siena.  

Coach Rick Pitino says preparation for the game has been interesting.

“They press the same way we press.  Their zone is sort of like a half-court trap like we run it,” says Pitino.  “It’s quite interesting; it’s kind of eerie, watching both teams and how similar they are in the way they play.”

But – Pitino says – the Wildcats have very different players than Louisville, and they’ll try to exploit those differences.  

The top-seeded Cards begin play just after seven o’clock.
