How Louisville Wins

Louisville will win this game if they keep scoring the way they do. They average 81.7 points per game and that ranks 10th in the country. The Cardinals also need to keep playing great defense. Their opponents average 62 points per game and that ranks 18th in the country. The final thing they will need to do is keep taking care of the ball.

How SMU Wins

SMU will win this game if they keep playing great defense. Their opponents average 61.2 points per game and that ranks 17th in the country. The Mustangs will also have to find a way to score more points. They only average 72.1 points per game and that ranks 124th in the country. The final thing they will need to do is take care of the ball. They average 13.4 turnovers per game and that ranks 268th in the country.

 

My Prediction

Louisville wants to make this a high scoring game. While SMU wants to make this a low scoring defensive grudge match. Whichever team can play to their style and take care of the ball will have the best chance in winning the game.

I think that the game if low scoring like SMU wants. I think that the game is close throughout and neither team gives an edge. I think that SMU pulls away late with the help of home court.

Final Score

SMU: 67
Louisville: 62
