Evansville vs Louisville Preview

Louisville will get its season started on Wednesday, looking to improve on a 24-7 finish a year ago in the shortened season. The Cardinals were scheduled to play Syracuse in last year’s ACC Tournament before the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything.

The game will take place in the “bubble” of the KFC Yum! Center, which will host not only Louisville and Evansville, but Little Rock, Duquesne, Seton Hall, Prairie View A&M, UNC Greensboro, Western Kentucky and Winthrop through Dec. 4.

“I do think that the protocols at U of L Health, that the Galt House, that the Yum Center have put into play are going to help, but there’s also a luck factor and we cross our fingers and hope that we’re able to get through all these games without any cases breaking out,” Louisville coach Chris Mack said.

Eight players departed the program after last season, including Jordan Nwora, who was selected No. 45 overall in this year’s NBA Draft. Mack knows his relatively inexperienced team will have to learn from their mistakes during what will likely be an unprecedented year.

You haven’t had to deal with foul trouble. You haven’t had to be trusted and relied upon. Anytime you have players that are inexperienced, sometimes they have to learn the hard way. We’ll take those things as they come. We’ll try to get better at it. I think players will learn through game experience, both positive and negative experience, and we’ll be better because of it.”

Evansville finished last season 9-23 and a miserable 0-18 in Missouri Valley Conference play.

”I believe in them and I think they believe in what we’re doing, I think they really enjoy the way they’re being coached and I believe they know that they’re improving as individuals and they’re improving as a team,” Evansville coach Todd Lickliter said. “We’ll have a test – we have plenty of tests coming up and we’ll see how we’re doing, that’s the beauty of it, that’s the fun of it. … That challenge of, can we keep growing and become the team we believe that we should be.”
