Cards Face Connecticut Today

by Stephanie Crosby

The final three games of the University of Louisville men’s basketball team’s regular season are this week. The 18-and-ten Cardinals face the 17-and-eleven Connecticut Huskies this afternoon.

Senior guard Edgar Sosa says both teams are looking to finish their seasons strong, so they can make it to the NCAA Tournament.

“There’s going to be a lot of desperation,” says Sosa. “Both teams desperately need this win. It’s going to be two teams just playing their hearts out. It’s going to come down to execution, rebounding, playing defense… it’s really just going to come down to who plays the better overall game.”

Coach Rick Pitino has told the team they need to win two of their last three games to secure a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

After Connecticut, they’ll travel to Marquette on Tuesday and finish their season with a home game against Syracuse on Saturday.
