Louisville Lineup Note: Jordan Nwora is leading the team in scoring at 19.3 points per game and has scored 20 or more in three of UL’s four games this season. He has also not started at all this season. He came damn close to a points/rebounds/turnovers triple-double on Wednesday night, so I don’t expect Chris Mack to suddenly reward him with a spot in the starting five.
