#3 seed Louisville Basketball is set to play the #6 seed Syracuse Orange in the 2020 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament Quarterfinals in Greensboro, NC. Syracuse advanced past North Carolina in the ACC Tournament’s 2nd round.

The ACC Tournament (if it goes on at all) will be played without fans. The NBA suspended its season the NCAA Tournament and numerous other conference tournaments will be played without fans as a result of the coronavirus pandemic COVID-19.

If the game goes on, this is an opponent that Louisville was fantastic versus last month in the KFC Yum! Center. The best ball movement of the season came against the Syracuse Orange and its 2-3 zone. Can UofL re-capture some of that great ball movement? Will the game be played at all? We’ll see.
