Two-straight Elite Eight appearances and NCAA Tournament appearances in six of the last seven seasons have made
Louisville a legitimate factor in college basketball year-in and year-out. Since Pitino took over in 2001, he has led the Cardinals to great national success, including a Final Four appearance in 2005. This season,
Louisville has went 20-11 and 11-7 in the Big East.
Though the Cardinals have lost five games to ranked opponents, they do hold two wins over
Syracuse, something no other team in the country can say.
Louisville has had two different four-game winning streaks and also picked up three wins over ranked teams.
Louisville has been pretty balances in most areas, not excelling in any one area and not struggling in one either. If the Cardinals have a strength, it would be in offensive rebounding, where they rank third in the Big East with 14.6 per-game.
Louisville likes to shoot from the outside, as they average 8 3-point field goals a game, which ties for the Big East lead. They do struggle to defend the perimeter though, ranking 15th in defensive 3-point field goal percentage at .346.
The Cardinals have been led by two players all season in Samardo Samuels and Edgar Sosa. Samuels averages 15.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per-game as a forward while Sosa is averaging 12.8 points and 4.6 assists per-contest.
