4. at Louisville on January 31st at 4 or 7:00 p.m.

Louisville is losing a lot from last year’s team, including star guard Russ Smith and three point specialist Luke Hancock. The good news for Cardinals fans, and the bad news for UNC fans since the Heels have to play new ACC member Louisville twice, is that Montrezl Harrell is back. Harrell averaged 14.0 points per game last season and was a dominant force on the inside for the Cardinals. He will have a chance to really shine on Rick Pitino’s Louisville team this year and will give Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks all they can handle on the low block.

This game will be the second meeting between these two teams as ACC opponents, as the teams play January 10th in Chapel Hill. But, this game makes the top five hardest list because the Tar Heels will be traveling up to the KFC Yum! center, one of the nicest and more modern courts in college basketball, to take on the Cards.�
