The Connecticut Huskies head to the Sunshine State to tangle with the South Florida Bulls in AAC action.
If Connecticut finishes outside of the top four in the AAC they can look back on their two losses to Southen Methodist. The Huskies dropped a 64-55 decision to their AAC rivals on Sunday as the offense never gotun tracked. The Mustangs were clearly the better offensie team with 46.7% from the floor while UConn was held to under 30% which was decisive. Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright scored 15 points each but were only 8-28 from the floor while Niels Giffey chipped in with eleven points and wasthe only player to shoot 50% at 4-6.

South Florida has found the going tough in conference play so that was not a good thing with Louiville on the schedule especially on the road. The Cardinals were relentless in an 80-54 victory last Tuesday as they led by 18 heading in to the locker room and never took their foot off the gas. While both teams sank shots in the 49% range, 20 Bulls giveaways led to 26 more looks at the basket for Louisville which were obviously put to good use. Victor Rudd poured in a game hight 27 points and hauled in ten rebounds on 11-17 from the floor with Shemiye McClendon and Martino Brock tossing in seven points apiece.
Going strictly by the numbers Connecticut is the choice but it's difficult to go on the road and win by double figures after alreading blasting the Bulls at home. I don't see a good side here but I'll look in to this further...
