First place in the Atlantic Coast Conference will be on the line when the Florida State Seminoles host the Louisville Cardinals. Both teams come into this matchup with just three losses in conference play, with just two weeks remaining in the regular season. The Duke Blue Devils are also in the mix to win the league title, but this game will go a long ways towards deciding the eventual champion. Florida State stunned the Cardinals in Louisville earlier this season winning by a score of 78-65. Louisville will be looking for revenge over the Seminoles on Monday night.

Louisville has won two straight games after going through a rough spell to begin the month of February. The Cardinals come into this game with an overall record of 23-5, and they are 14-3 in ACC play. Florida State has won three straight games, and six of their last seven games to move into an essential tie atop the conference. The Seminoles are 13-3 in ACC play, and are 23-4 overall. Both Florida State and Louisville will be a threat to reach the Final Four when the NCAA Tournament begins.

Louisville Wants to Play Fast

The Louisville Cardinals will try to speed up the tempo in this game, and they will use their pressure defense to try to force turnovers. The Cardinals are averaging over 75 points per game this season, and they have taken advantage of creating easy scores. Louisville still manages to hold opponents to just 63 points per game despite playing at a fast tempo. Giving up 78 points to the Florida State Seminoles has to be a point of concern for the Cardinals, and they will need to make some adjustments in this game.

Forward Jordan Nwora leads the team with 18.2 points per game this season, and he is one of the most talented players in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Nwora is the only player that is scoring in double-figures for the Cardinals, and the team really struggles when he gets shut down. Guard Ryan McMahon is an elite three point shooter, and he will need to be making shots in this game.

Seminoles Are Loaded With Depth

The Florida State Seminoles are extremely balanced on both offense and defense, and they are one of the deepest teams in the country. Florida State is also scoring over 75 points per game this season, while allowing just over 65 points per contest. The Seminoles prefer to slow things down, but they have the athletes and the talent to run with the Cardinals.

Florida State will play over 10 players in this game, and it’s hard to determine who the leading scorer will be in this game. Devin Vassell, Trent Forrest, and M.J. Walker are all scoring over 10 points per game, and they will all take big shots for this team. The Seminoles can also score both inside and out, and they have a team that is loaded with shooters. Florida State is always a tough team to defend, but they are even harder to stop on their home floor.

Florida State Too Tough on Home Floor

The Louisville Cardinals have one of the best players in the conference in Jordan Nwora, but he has to do a lot of it on his own. Louisville will need to create some easy scores with their pressure if they are going to win this game, but Florida State is pretty sold with the ball. The Seminoles are one of the deepest teams in the league, and their depth is going to wear down the Cardinals. This should be a tight game throughout, but the Seminoles are just too tough on their home floor. Bet the Florida State Seminoles over the Louisville Cardinals in this ACC showdown on Monday night.
