The No. 19 Louisville Cardinals (20-5, 8-4 Big East) look to continue their dominance over the No. 2 Syracuse Orange (25-1, 12-1 Big East) in a rematch of two of the country's hottest teams.

The Cardinals have won six straight to climb back up the rankings, including back-to-back wins against Connecticut and West Virginia. The Orange, meanwhile, are on a five-game winning streak with equally impressive back-to-back wins against Georgetown and Connecticut.

Will Rick Pitino find a way to again take advantage of the Syracuse 2-3 zone? Or will Jim Boeheim finally get his team to rebound like a true title contender?
