Because of issues with an NCAA investigation, Southerland did not travel with the team to Da Ville yesterday for this afternoon's game. He is The Cuse's 3rd leading scorer.
One More tidbit from the "Orange Nation." Jim Boeheim says "Rick Pitino should be in the Hall of Fame."
The Louisville Cardinals are 11-0 straight up and 7-3-1 against the spread over their last 11 games. They will look to add to that winning streak and hold on to their new No. 1 ranking with a win at home over the No. 6 Syracuse Orange this Saturday.
Louisville opened as seven-point favorites in the Big East battle, according to OddsShark.com, while the total was sitting around 133.5 early Saturday.
The Cardinals have dominated the Orange against the spread, streaking to a 7-1-1 ATS mark in their past nine meetings.

They will definitely learn from this loss - not a bad loss at all. Bad the way they lost it but, to lose by 2 against the #6 team isn't the end of the world. It's not as though they got teabagged by an unranked Texas A&M team at home.
An A&M team that just lost to a 9-6 Alabama team - BTW.
