We are just moments away from the North Carolina Tar Heels taking on the Louisville Cardinals at the Yum! Center in Louisville, KY. The Tar Heels are currently on a six-game losing streak and have not won a game in the month of February, and Louisville is coming off of a dominant win against Syracuse that snapped a two-game losing streak.
I think it’s reasonable to wonder which version of both of these teams will show up to play in this game. We all know the Heels have had various struggles that seem to add up more and more, but Louisville had some interesting issues prior to the win against Syracuse, primarily with their star player Jordan Nwora. In the losses to GT and Clemson Nwora only scored 7 points total, and didn’t even start against the Tigers.
Predictably things have gone from hopeful to dreadful prior to tip-off, as it has been announced that Garrison Brooks and Justin Pierce are out for today’s game.
That’s it. I got nothing else, guys. We’ll be back after the game. Try to have fun, be respectful to one another, and we’ll get through this one together.
