The Cards and Cats will square off Friday at 1:00.  Both teams come into the game with 2 losses.  Kentucky fell to UCLA and Kansas while Louisville fell to Seton Hall and Purdue.  Louisville’s best wins have come against Indiana and Memphis while UK has a great win over Virginia Tech.  It’s hard to really place a value on either team thus far in the 2017-18 season, but here are the team stats for both squads:
