Louisville Basketball heads to Miami Tuesday to face the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables at the Watsco Center. Jim Larrañaga’s squad last year had no depth whatsoever and really impacted the Hurricanes ability to play deep into games and also affected the Canes late in the season as well. Miami finished 14-18 overall and 5-13 in the ACC. The Canes do expect much better results in 2019-2020.

Louisville starts the 2019-2020 season as the #5 team in the country with ACC Pre-Season Player of the Year Jordan Nwora (also 1st team AP All-America) and a lot of other strong parts back from last year’s 20-14 result (10-8 in the ACC) following its 1st Round loss to the Minnesota Gophers in the NCAA’s 1st Round in Des Moines, IA.

Here are the stats:
