USF vs. No. 12 Louisville

When/where: 7; Sun Dome

TV/radio: ESPNU; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Records: Louisville 16-3, 5-1 AAC; USF 10-8, 1-4

Notable: The Bulls are seeking their first win against a ranked foe in 23 months. They defeated then-No. 19 Louisville on Feb. 29, 2012. … The Cardinals appear to be peaking; senior guard Russ Smith totaled 41 points in wins over Houston and Connecticut last week, and 6-8 sophomore Montrezl Harrell had 18 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in Saturday's 12-point win at UConn. … The 61 points USF surrendered in Saturday's seven-point loss to Cincinnati were its third-fewest this year. … Sophomore G Javontae Hawkins' career-best 15 points in that game were one more than in his previous six combined.
