Wichita State will face Louisville Saturday in the Final Four in a matchup that many will frame as David vs. Goliath.
However, Cardinals coach Rick Pitino will not be among those making that characterization. He has been singing Wichita State’s praises and is making it known this week that Wichita State has Louisville’s complete attention.
"They're not just winning - they're pounding teams,” Pitino said Thursday, according to a tweet from CBSSports.com’s Gregg Doyel.
Wichita State is a tough team that has beaten some very good teams this year, including Gonzaga and Ohio State in the NCAA tournament.
Still, Louisville is the top overall seed in this tournament for a reason. The Cardinals have won their four tournament games by an average of 21.8 points per game, and three of the victories have come by at least 22 points.
Here is Louisville’s blueprint to beat Wichita State on Saturday in the Final Four.
