The #2 UConn Huskies vs. #7 Louisville Cardinals, a Big East battle
of the ages which has the making of an instant classic! Well, maybe
not battle of the ages, but it will be a pretty damn good game and
could have some pretty big implications to both the Top 25 ranking
and position in the toughest conference in college basketball in the
It is no secret at this point in the college basketball season that
the Big East is by far the best conference this season. Some people
may say that the ACC conference is still up there in the running for
the seasonís best college basketball conference, but Big East teams
continue to prove there worth with UConn, Pittsburgh and Marquette
getting national attention. From top to bottom the Big East
conference is stacked with great teams filled with talent and will
probably have a team in the mix when it is all said and done in the
NCAA tournament in March.
So far this season the Cardinals and Huskies defenses have been top
notch. Rick Pitinoís Cardinals are undefeated in Big East conference
play at 8-0, which only Marquette can say the same and although
UConn has dropped one conference game to Georgetown earlier in the
season, but Jim Calhounís squad will be the biggest test for this
Louisville team looking to go undefeated in the Big East.
As of right now, the UConn Huskies are the best team in the country
in my opinion. They play great basketball on both sides of the floor
and are lead by one of the best college coaches in the game with Jim
Calhoun leading the Huskies.

The Louisville Cardinals on the other hand have struggled a little
bit losing three games this season, but have since rebounded and are
legit contenders to win the Big East and possibly make a run in the
NCAA tournament come March.
These games in the month of February are the most important in the
college basketball season for both Louisville and UConn as they try
to win the Big East with only Marquette standing in their way. Who
ever wins this match up between Big East heavyweights will have a
leg up going into their showdowns with conference leading Marquette.
Although both teams are playing superb basketball right now coming
into this game with nine game winning streaks, the UConn Huskies
will just be too much for Pitinoís Cardinals. The game will
ultimately come down to which ever team can be most dominant on the
defensive end of the floor. The Cardinals may put up a great fight
against their toughest conference opponent yet, but in the end the
Huskies will be too much for Louisville to handle on both offense
This game will arguably the best college game of the season with two
great defenses going head to head, but I really donít see any team
getting the best of the Huskies this season.
Uconn +3 over Louisville
