Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a rough go of it lately for the Yellow Jackets, but now after a week off, they have a chance to rebound against the No. 17/16 Louisville Cardinals.

The Cardinals are a good team on both sides, averaging 80.7 points per game and giving up 58.2 points per game, a scoring margin of 22.6 points. I guess you could say that's pretty good.

Louisville's offense features four players who all average at least 10 points per game. The best of them is fifth-year senior Damion Lee. Lee is averaging 16.6 points per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor. He also leads the team in steals (31) and 3-point attempts (101), but he is shooting just 33.7 percent from the 3-point line.

One of the Cardinals' more complete players is sophomore Chinanu Onuaku (pronunciation on Louisville's roster page). Onuaku is averaging 10.6 points per game while shooting 63 percent from the floor. He also leads the team in rebounds with 9.1 per game and has a total of 100 defensive rebounds (163 total) and blocks (37).

Joining these two in the starting lineup will be sophomore Jaylen Johnson (5.7 ppg || 51.1 percent shooting), sophomore Quentin Snider (10.4 ppg || 44.2 percent shooting || 25-of-56 from 3-point line) and fifth-year senior Trey Lewis (12.2 ppg || 43.7 percent shooting || 2.7 assists per game).

Game Time: 4:00 p.m. EST
