The Cardinals will be playing their fourth game in seven days when they host Western Kentucky University at 6:00 p.m.. m. at the KFC Yum Center.

Series History: U of L leads series 41-39, including 28-18 in Louisville. The Cardinals have won eight straight wins, including the last meeting between 71 and 54 last year in Nashville, Tenn.
« You have a lot of talented players, » Mack said of the WKU. « They have some really good playmakers and shooters. I tried my best in the off-season to get Charles to join the NBA. He wouldn’t, so we have to compete against one of the best front court players in the country.
« When we relax like tonight, we look like Gulliver’s travels, the Lilliputians on the edge. He’s really good. We saw this last year against two of our seasoned postal players, Malik and Steve (Enoch), and I don’t see these guys on our bench right now. So we have to find a way. ”
