Opening Line (Louisville -3)

Fresh off a convincing defeat of the Providence Friars, Kevin Willard will need to defeat his mentor and, 'father-figure,' Rick Pitino in what's likely a, "win or go home" scenario. It appears that Seton Hall's Aaron Cosby may return to the starting lineup as he is listed in his usual #2 spot in the media notes. Last night, battling the flu and a 103-degree temperature, Cosby buried two 3-pointers midway through the first half as the Pirates took firm control of the game. Tonight, it's likely that Cosby will be able to exceed the 17-minutes he logged on Tuesday.

If the Pirates play as they did last night, there's probably few teams in the conference that can beat them. Of course, inconsistency has plagued the Pirates throughout the season, especially on the road and there isn't one scenario that would surprise myself, or other Pirates' fans, regarding the outcome of this win. We do know the winner will draw Marquette in the quarterfinals and if that happens to be the Pirates, they'll be all but a lock to hear their University called on Sunday evening.

As always, Let's Go Hall!
