Pittsburgh @Louisville

Current records: Pittsburgh 12-6; Louisville 2-16

What you should know

The Pittsburgh Panthers’ road trip continues as they head to KFC Yum! Center at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday to take on the Louisville Cardinals. Teams split their matchups last year, with U of L winning the first 75-72 at home and the Panthers winning the second 65-53.

Pitt sauntered past the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in points last Saturday, winning the game 71-60. Four players on Pitt scored double digits: guard Nike Sibande (21), guard Jamarius Burton (19), forward Blake Hinson (13) and guard Nelly Cummings (11).

Meanwhile, U of L were expected to have a tough time last Saturday and, well, they did. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 80-59 punch in the gut against the North Carolina Tar Heels. Top scorer for U of L was Guard El Ellis (22 points).

The Panthers are the favorites in this instance with an expected 9.5 point lead over the win. They were consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (6-2) so could be worth a quick bet.

Pittsburgh’s win lifted them to 12-6, while Louisville’s loss dropped them to 2-16. In Pittsburgh’s win, Nike Sibande had 21 points along with six boards and Jamarius Burton had 19 points. We’ll see if the Cardinals have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
