One of the greatest rivalries in all of college basketball will go down this weekend. This Saturday, the third-ranked Louisville Cardinals will travel to Rupp Arena to face the fourth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats (rankings are from B/R's Writer Ranks).
It is interesting to note that both coaches have announced they will not be coaching after their contracts run out—Rick Pitino has said he will stop coaching after 2017 and John Calipari has said he won't coach more than 10 years at Kentucky
This is just more fuel to the fire for this rivalry. Both teams want to hold the title of best team in the state every year, especially the years leading up to these two prominent coaches leaving.
I'm not sure if any would argue against Kentucky being the more talented team in this matchup. However, Louisville's experience and scrappy play style could keep them in this game.
Here are the five keys to a win for the Wildcats.
