2017 NCAA Tournament Louisville vs. Jacksonville State game preview
Louisville will attempt to produce another memorable NCAA Tournament run under coach Rick Pitino.
The Cardinals enter their first-round matchup against Jacksonville State as a heavy favorite. Louisville is 24-8, but the Cardinals have been inconsistent late in the season. They’ve lost three of their past five games, a slump that includes losses to North Carolina and Duke within the past month.
Donovan Mitchell leads Louisville with 15.7 points per game. Quentin Snider follows with 12.7, and Deng Adel averages 11.9.
Jacksonville State, meanwhile, likely will need a superior performance and some luck to advance. The Gamecocks (20-14) have won four straight games, which is a nice rebound after losing three of four contests from Feb. 9-23. Malcolm Drumwright leads Jacksonville State offensively with 12.6 points per game.
Unless Louisville struggles mightily from the floor, look for the Cardinals to cruise into the second round. It will be interesting to see if Louisville can produce more March magic under its veteran coach.
