The start of the Billy Minardi Classic features a deceptively tough UMKC team.  The ‘Roos will challenge UofL’s backcourt but are no match in the front court even without Mangok Mathiang.

Fans should expect to see a light dose of Deng Adel but shouldn’t expect to see Anas Mahmoud make his return from an ankle sprain.

Also…Bompy.

Cards should win pretty easily.  Louisville 85-UMKC 58
