The Scouting Report
Another chapter in the Bluegrass State rivalry will unfold on December 2, as the Kentucky Wildcats visit the KFC Yum! Center for a high-octane showdown with the home team Louisville Cardinals. Both squads entered the 2012–2013 with high expectations, as both were ranked in the preseason top 10 in the AP and Coaches Polls. Riled up by a crowd that should be one of the largest and most passionate of the season, the Cardinals will attempt to reduce the Wildcats into purring arm pets behind junior guard Shoni Schimmel, who led last year’s team in scoring.
University of Louisville Athletics
Crossing the Ohio River on the north side of Louisville, it’s impossible not to notice the glassy façade of the KFC Yum! Center right on the river, a gleaming, $238 million cathedral to the University of Louisville’s flagship sport: basketball. Perennial powerhouses in both the men’s and women’s competition, Louisville showcases its fast-paced brand of basketball to one of the most loyal fanbases and student bodies in the country. While hoops may be king—the men’s basketball squad has won the school its two only NCAA Championships—the Cardinals take pride in a host of distinguished sports, including a football team that won both the Big East Conference and the Orange Bowl in 2006, leading the basketball team to briefly experiment with wearing helmets and cleats.
