The U of L women's team looks to bounce back from a disappointing performance against Notre Dame on Monday when they face Virginia Tech tonight. Here's your preview.
Saint Louis lost a basketball game last night, and then got stranded at the arena when their bus driver took off without them. She was later tracked down by state troopers on the highway and arrested for DWI.

10. LOUISVILLE CARDINALS
LAST WEEK: 12
The Cardinals have now played six ACC games without their former starting point guard, Quentin Snider, who's out with a strained hip flexor. As valuable as Snider was in their win over Kentucky in December, they've been a better team without him in ACC play—both on offense and on D.
Here are the competition-adjusted splits for Louisville with and without Snider—one set for a pure 5/6 game split, and one set that removes this week's Virginia game, which isn't all that worthwhile for analysis given that the Cardinals were also missing Deng Adel and Mangok Mathiang:
Leaving out the last Virginia game, Louisville has been 25.7 points per 100 possessions better without Snider in ACC play than it was with him. That's a significant margin.

Duke students had to take a quiz this week and the ones who did the best got the best seats for the North Carolina game. I actually love the idea.
