The Louisville Cardinals will stay on the road for their first game in 2014 as they head up to play the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. The Cards will come in 12-2, beating UCF Tuesday 90-65. Rutgers are 7-7, beating Temple on New Years Day.

Rutgers could be without guard Jerome Seagears, who has a sprained ankle.  Seagears averages 9.5 points and 4.2 assists per game. 

Louisville is hoping to work on rebounding and Rutger does not have a lot bit of size. Winning a conference game on the road is always interesting, even for the No.14 team in the nation. This should be a fun match up, especially at the guard position.

Things to watch:

1. Luke Hancock is starting to heat up and be healthy, much like he did in the second-half of last season. Can he stay hot from the outside?

2. Rebounds! Pitino wants the guards and the threes to get rebounds in the absence of bigs.

3. Can Louisville stay healthy. That is the scary, but needed question for any team the rest of the season.

Where: Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J.
