Despite yet another heavy dose of wintery weather, the biggest game of the season so far for the Louisville women's basketball team will go on as planned.
Come rain, snow, or ice the Cards will take on the Huskies tonight at 7pm in the @kfc_yumcenter #beatuconn #unfinishedbusiness #L1C4— Louisville WBB (@UofLWBB) March 3, 2014
That's Huskies as in top-ranked Connecticut, the team that throttled the Cards both earlier this season and in last year's national championship game. UConn has won all 30 of its games this season by double-digits, and is the runaway favorite to win their ninth national title.
Louisville is hoping to use the emotion of a night where they'll say goodbye to seniors Shoni Schimmel, Asia Taylor, Tia Gibbs and Antonita Slaughter as a springboard to a major upset. They're also hoping to feed off the crowd, which is expected to be close to a sellout.
Tip-off between the Huskies and Cards is set for 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
