UCF will be playing its third consecutive ranked team as it looks to break out of a five-game skid on the road against the Cardinals. Louisville, meanwhile, will look to bounce back at home after a three-point loss to No. 13 Cincinnati on Thursday night.

The Cardinals easily dispatched UCF, 90-65, earlier this season. Senior guard Isaiah Sykes has been playing his best basketball lately, averaging 18.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4 assists per game in conference play.

UCF's younger players -- Brandon Goodwin, Staphon Blair and Matt Williams -- will be called upon to continue their growth in a tough environment on the road
