KEY GAME INFORMATION
PITTSBURGH: Head coach Jamie Dixon has his work cut out for him this year, replacing two double-digit scorers from last season in SG Ashton Gibbs and SF Nasir Robinson. But any team with a senior point guard like Tray Woodall (11.7 PPG, 6.1 APG) is going to be dangerous, as he is a threat to drive, shoot (1.8 threes per game) or hit his open targets as an elite passer. The question for this team is who he will be passing to, with the most potential resting in the hands of 6-foot-10 freshman C Steven Adams, arguably the best recruit in all of the conference. But also look for 6-foot-5 swingman Lamar Patterson (9.6 PPG, 5.3 RPG) to emerge as more of a scoring threat, with the ability to post up but also extend defenses, making 41% of his threes last season. Senior Dante Taylor (5.8 PPG, 4.9 RPG), a former McDonald's All-American, should also be ready to assume a bigger role in his final go-around after making great use of his limited 18.8 MPG last season.
LOUISVILLE: This year is Rick Pitino's chance to make the Big East his conference, entering the season as the No. 2 team in the nation. The Cardinals didn't reach their potential last season until the NCAAs, finishing 10-8 in the conference even though they had six players averaging at least 9.0 PPG. Although last year's leading scorer Kyle Kuric is gone, junior Russ Smith (11.5 PPG, 2.2 SPG) is back in the fold after posting those numbers in just 21.1 MPG last year. Sophomore Chane Behanan (9.5 PPG, 7.5 RPG) should be ready to take an even bigger step this year after producing strong numbers from the post in his first campaign, with 13.2 PPG and 8.0 RPG in the NCAA Tournament. Throw in a veteran point guard in senior Peyton Siva (9.1 PPG, 5.6 APG, 1.7 SPG) and a rapidly improving center Gorgui Dieng (9.1 PPG, 9.1 RPG), and you can see why expectations are so high in Louisville. This experienced club will be joined by a highly-rated newcomer Montrezl Harrell. Although the 6-foot-8 forward was originally set to go to Virginia Tech, the firing of Seth Greenberg there gave Pitino an opening to score another player who should contribute immediately in this deep frontcourt.

*Pittsburgh-Louisville Preview* ===============================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Pittsburgh (17-4) at Louisville (16-4), 7:00 p.m. EDT

From No. 1 in the country to the verge of its longest losing streak in nearly nine years, Louisville has coach Rick Pitino declaring Monday night's home contest with Pittsburgh a must-win.

The Cardinals (16-4, 4-3 Big East) beat Connecticut 73-58 in their first game as the nation's top-ranked team Jan. 14 before falling 70-68 at home to then-No. 6 Syracuse on Jan. 19.

They proceeded to fall at Villanova 73-64 on Tuesday prior to Saturday's 53-51 loss at Georgetown.

Louisville hasn't lost four straight since Feb. 12-25, 2004, and it hasn't lost four straight Big East games since joining the conference in 2005-06.

"We have to get this win. It's a must game for us," Pitino said. "Because four (losses in a row), now you're on the verge of getting a sub-.500 record in the league, and you don't want to mess with that."

Pitino already made a change to his lineup Saturday, starting Luke Hancock in place of leading scorer Russ Smith.

Smith, averaging 18.4 points, came off the bench for only the third time this season and scored 12 points on a season low-tying nine shots. He scored a season worst-tying eight points and shot 2 for 13 against Villanova and is hitting 33.3 percent from the field over his last six.

"I didn't get a chance to create my own shot because there are going to be some bad shots, and coach doesn't want that, so I've just got to get the offensive moving a bit," Smith said.

"At the end of the day I'm know I'm going to play. And I know how good I am. I've proven myself already. I don't have to go out there and just try and throw up points. I go out there now to just do what coach asks me to do. He wants to do things a little bit differently now."

Hancock scored 12 points in his first start since Nov. 15 and Pitino plans to start him again versus Pittsburgh, which has won four straight and is coming off a 93-55 rout of DePaul on Saturday.

No one played more than 24 minutes as the Panthers (17-4, 5-3) set a season high for points.

"Obviously we'll be ready for Monday," coach Jamie Dixon said. "You just want to get wins. There are so many great teams (in the Big East)."

Pittsburgh ranks among the nation's leaders with only 10.4 turnovers per game even after finishing with a season-worst 18 on Saturday. Louisville leads the conference and ranks among the best in the country by forcing an average of 19.5.

"Too many turnovers were unforced I thought," Dixon said. "We've got to recognize that there are things we need to do better."

The Panthers use a balanced scoring attack, with no one averaging more than forward Talib Zanna's 11.5 points. Trey Zeigler scored a season-high 18 off the bench Saturday.

"Any night anyone can lead us in scoring," Zeigler said. "When you have 10 guys that can bring something to the table we're going to have nights like that."

Louisville has won three straight in this series since Peyton Siva became a starter, but the senior point guard may need to play better for that streak to continue. He went scoreless and took only two shots Saturday - the second game during the Cardinals' slide in which he's scored three points or fewer.

Smith scored a game-high 18 points in Louisville's 57-54 home win over Pittsburgh in the most recent meeting Feb. 26.
