Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina State Wolfpack 2/1/2020
After taking the loss from the Seminoles back on January 4, the Louisville Cardinals have forgotten how to lose and they took down team after team. They are on the road right now and Jordan Nwora is the leader of this team as he had been averaging 19.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.
NBA Scouts have been scouting Nwora for this season and he is expected to be picked late in the first round. He has been getting enough support from their role players and Enoch has been fantastic for them as well as Sutton. Still, this team had some close calls from getting their streak snapped and if there is one thing that they would like to improve is that their road record.
