Southwest Region: Louisville Cardinals (4) vs. Morehead State Eagles (13) Thurs. March 17, 2011 1:40 p.m. EST

Over the past few years, the Louisville Cardinals (4) have been arguably one of the best college basketball teams in the country with legendary head coach Rick Pitino being able to build another winning basketball program. Even though the Cardinals have struggled at times this season with some key losses to teams like Pitino’s old team in the Kentucky Wildcats, Villanova Wildcats, Georgetown Hoyas and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Louisville Cardinals have been able to get back on track with a with a high seed (4) in the Southwest Region.

Despite losing to the UConn Huskies for the first time in three games this season recently, the Louisville Cardinals have an opportunity to make an impression in the 2011 NCAA Tournament as they will have a relatively easy task ahead of them in the form of the Morehead State Eagles (13).

The one team that could derail the Louisville Cardinals and their chances of reaching the Elite Eight is the Kansas Jayhawks (1). With the potential matchup between Rick Pitino’s Cardinals and Bill Self’s Jayhawks in the Sweet Sixteen, Louisville does have a shot of going the distance in the tournament if they can pull off the upset, but in the meantime they will be concentrating on getting some momentum going with a big win over Morehead State in the Mile High City on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center.

Even though there is always a chance for an upset in the NCAA Tournament as that it the reason they call it March Madness, I believe the Louisville Cardinals should just cruise to the next round to face either the Vanderbilt Commodores (5) or the Richmond Spider (12).
