2014 March Madness: Louisville Vs. Saint Louis - Game Time, TV Schedule, Announcers, Line, Predictions

Louisville was very lucky to pull out a win against its MAAC doppelganger Manhattan. Saint Louis was even luckier to be the beneficiary of an epic collapse by N.C. State. Someone's luck will run out on Saturday. The winner will face one either Wichita State, Cal Poly, Kentucky, or Kansas State.

Time: 2:45 PM EST

TV Channel: CBS

Location: Amway Center (Orlando, FL)

Announcers: Brian Anderson, Dan Bonner, Kristine Leahy

Opening Betting Line: Louisville -9 (133) via Odds Shark

Prediction: Louisville played its first close game in a while against Manhattan, while the loss that seemed inevitable for Saint Louis, before N.C. State's total collapse, was more of the same for the Billikens, who have struggled immensely down the stretch this season. One of the reasons that Manhattan was so successful against Louisville is that they run a similar system, and are familiar with how the Cardinals play. While Saint Louis has played pressing teams like VCU, they won't have the same familiarity with Rick Pitino's system. Louisville should have a distinct advantage here.
