Louisville (10-4, 5-3 ACC) is set to face Georgia Tech (8-5, 4-3 ACC) on Monday at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Louisville lost their last time out against Clemson, while Georgia Tech upset Florida State 76-65 at home.
Louisville ranks 69th in the country in offensive efficiency and 66th in defensive rating. The Cardinals tend to play at a slower pace and prioritize rebounding and defense.
Louisville fell to Clemson in their last contest 54-50. The Cardinals shot just 5 of 24 from the field but held Clemson to just 7 of 35 from deep on the other end.
Louisville has struggled shooting the ball the ball this season, as they convert just 31.5 percent of their threes. Radford transfer Carlik Jones leads the team in points, steals and rebounds. The senior averages 17.6 PPG.
Louisville must do a better job taking care of the basketball in this game. On top of that, their defense needs to force more turnovers to try and create more opportunities for the offense.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Georgia Tech is 4-3 in ACC play and is better than what their overall record would tell. The Yellow Jackets have looked sharp offensively this season. They rank 33rd in offensive rating and shoot 37 percent from deep.
Like Louisville, Georgia Tech is led by a veteran guard in Jose Alvarado. Like Jones, Alavardo leads his team in points, rebounds and assists. Moses Wright paces the team in rebounds with 7.5 a game.
Georgia Tech holds a major advantage over Louisville when it comes turnovers and forcing them. The Yellow Jackets are 35th in the country in forcing turnovers.
If there’s one area the Jackets must improve, its 3-point defense. Louisville is not a good 3-point shooting team, but the Jackets also allow their matchups to shoot 37 percent from deep. That must change if the Jackets are to get off the bubble.
- Yellow Jackets are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games.
- Under is 6-0 in Yellow Jackets last 6 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Under is 4-1 in Cardinals last 5 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
