Last Game: Syracuse upset the then-No. 1 Cards back in January, 70-68. At the time, we all thought it was the beginning of a dominant run. Not as much.
Louisville Last Year: Syracuse might have beaten the Cardinals twice but it was Louisville left standing in the final weekend. They capped a 22-9 regular season with a Big East Championship and a trip to the Final Four where they were felled by eventual-champ Kentucky.
Louisville Coach: Rick Pitino (12th season) - You may have heard of him. Jim Boeheim likes him, even though sometimes he doesn't.
"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Russ Smith is the undisputed scoring leader of the team, averaging 18.4 PPG. He's also the team's most prolific three-point shooter. As you might have gathered, both of those things can cause problems for us. Don't sleep on Chane Behanan (11.0 PPG) and Peyton Siva (10.1 PPG).
Fun Fact: This isn't really a fact, but, it's fun...
Unexciting Reason To Watch: We're in that part of the season when many Syracuse fans assume we're going to lose games like this. That's probably you.
Exciting Reason To Watch: This is the last major Big East game in the Carrier Dome. Respect.
