Game Day Live Blog: Louisville at NC State | Game 8

The Cardinals are staying on the road for their ACC opener.

RALEIGH, N.C.. - After falling just short at Michigan State, the Louisville men's basketball program will stay on the road for a brief break in non-conference play, traveling to NC State for their ACC opener.

Against the Spartans, the Cardinals trailed by as much as 20 in the second half, and were staring a blowout loss right in the face. 18 second half points from El Ellis, and 22 overall, saw Louisville make it an eight-point game with under two minutes to go, but the comeback rally couldn't advance beyond that.

As for the Wolfpack, they are coming off of a knockout, drag-out matchup against Nebraska. NC State needed four overtimes to put away the Cornhuskers, but were eventually successful thanks in part to a 39-point performance from Dereon Seabron.
