Syracuse Orange (18-8, 8-5) vs. No. 18 Louisville Cardinals (19-6, 8-4) GameThread

The Cardinals don't have anything to play for but pride. The Orange need as many wins as they can get.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

The Louisville Cardinals have taken over from the Syracuse Orange as this year's Self-Imposed Postseason Banned ACC Team. Still, they've got a season to play and they'll continue to do so tonight when they host the Orange in the Yum!

Tip is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN.

The Cardinals didn't do as Syracuse did and instead decided to ban themselves in a season when they're actually good. They're one of the best teams in the ACC with a 19-6 record and they're among the best scoring offense and scoring defense. They're very good.

The Orange aren't so shabby these days either, however. They've won eight of nine games and have moved up to a seventh-place tie in the ACC standings with their eyes on getting into the top four.
