 Reliving Past UNC and FSU Games

With no games for a few days because of positive COVID-19 cases within the Louisville program we sit back and patiently wait to see our Cards in action again.

The North Carolina and Florida State games have been postponed with a slight chance of cancellation. So, instead we will revisit recent games between the Cards and these foes.

North Carolina, who Louisville was scheduled to play this past Sunday, has not been to the KFC Yum! Center since Jan. 3, 2019. The Cards and Heels played in Chapel Hill on Jan. 19 last season with Louisville hanging on down the stretch for a 74-67 win. The prior season, which I will highlight, was just as close with a 73-66 score.

Here are some photos from that 73-66 win in 2019:

The Cards and Seminoles have played a little more often with those last two games ending in Florida State's favor. FSU topped the Cards by two in the ACC semifinals last season. During the regular season, the Cards lost at home by eight. That will be the game I highlight below. The two foes have split the prior two meetings before that.

Here are photos from the Feb. 6, 2020 loss:

UofL and FSU will get a chance to play in Tallahassee on Jan. 10, 2021 so I won't feel as bad about their first game getting cancelled if that ends up being the case..

On a side note, it's crazy the difference a year makes in terms of photography. The UNC game photos are from January 2019 and the FSU game photos are from February 2020. I am certainly glad my photos have gotten better over time as I continue to grow and develop as a photographer.

I'm sure the rest of the crew here at Cardinal Couple is equally as grateful that they have better quality photos to post. We'll call it part of Paulie's magic he works most days for us.


There has not been an announcement made yet about the home game against Miami as Louisville, Miami, and the ACC continue to figure that out and if the game will be possible  Miami looked pretty good in holding on to knock off UNC yesterday 67-63. North Carolina might be lamenting they are in ACC part of their schedule already, they went 5-0 in non-conference action but are 0-2 in the league now. 


San Antonio for a "bubble" NCAA Tournament?  The Texas city has emerged as a potential site for ALL of the NCAA Tournament games this spring. The 2021 NCAA Final Four was scheduled there already. Trying to work out the logistics, venues, scheduling and hotel stays for over 60 teams for an extended time is a challenge, make no mistake about it. The city is "in talks" with the NCAA about hosting the entire event. I'd be interested in your thoughts about this. Leave them in the comments section.

Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
