LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville's challenge against top-ranked Connecticut in Monday night's American Athletic Conference matchup is no different from last month.
The No. 3 Cardinals (28-2, 16-1) must overcome a Huskies team that is difficult to beat.
Senior forward Asia Taylor believes disciplined play can help Louisville end its 13-game losing streak against UConn, including last year's NCAA championship and last month's 81-64 loss, and claim a share of first place in the season finale.
That's a must considering how UConn (30-0, 17-0) takes advantage of opponents' mistakes.
Says Taylor: "the thing about UConn is they make you pay anytime you're undisciplined, anytime you reach, anytime you're out of position."
The Cardinals are additionally motivated to send No. 2 career scorer Shoni Schimmel and several other seniors out with a win in their final home game.
