LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Chris Mack addressed the media Tuesday, as his team prepares to face Lipscomb University.

The Cards are coming off a one-point loss at Indiana Saturday, a game in which the Cardinals led for the majority of play.

Coach Mack said the team has many things to improve on, on both sides of the ball.

“I hate losing," Mack said. "We have to get better because of the experiences we have, both when we win and when we lose.”

Redshirt junior guard Ryan McMahon also spoke Tuesday, saying he thinks facing so many high-caliber teams early in the season, is beneficial to the Cardinals.

“We’ve bounced back from adversity early in the season," McMahon said. "I think the fact that we’ve seen it earlier will really benefit us later.”

The Lipscomb Bisons (7-2) presents defensive challenges for Louisville, the put up just fewer than 86 points per game, and has won five of its last six games.

“Lipscomb is a confident group.. they pass the ball exceptionally well. Every pass that’s made is made with zip on it. They’re always in constant pursuit of getting the right shot.”

The Cardinals begin a five-game homestand Wednesday night against the Bisons. Tipoff for that one is set for 7:05 p.m.
