It is 2nd round action in Birmingham. The Sooners are looking to continue their hot shooting against the Cardinals and advance to their first Sweet 16 since the 2003 Tournament.
This will not be an easy game for the Sooners but as we all know, in the tournament anything can happen. The Cardinals are lead by David Padgett & Terrence Williams inside and Earl Clark & Edgar Sosa on the outside.
Louisville likes to play a very fast up and down game, scoring 71.9 ppg during the regular season, and 79 against Boise St. on Friday. Louisville likes to mix up their defenses mainly playing Man to Man and 2-3 Zone.
The keys to the game are as they always are, if the Sooner hit their shots they are in it until the very end but if the shooters don't show up, we could be in for a long game.
