The University of Louisville Cardinals are hosting Lipscomb (7-2) tonight at the KFC Yum! Center. Lipscomb’s two losses are to Belmont, but the Bisons do own wins over TCU and SMU. Lipscomb is a high scoring team but they do most of their work on the interior.  The Cards shouldn’t have to worry too much about the 226th 3-point shooting team in the nation, but the Bisons are dangerous.
