Louisville's potential Final Four roadblock
By Joe Kaiser
Even if Louisville wins its first game as every No. 1 seed has done in the past, things get tough right away in the Cardinals' second game of the NCAA tournament.
The reality is that Rick Pitino's team will have to get past the winner of Missouri/Colorado State, and while the Tigers get more national attention the Rams are among the nation's best on the glass. Both teams are capable of knocking off the No. 1 seeded Cardinals.
Here's our own Andy Katz with more on that.

"The Colorado State-Missouri winner in an 8-9 game in Lexington in the Midwest region will provide a possible pest for No. 1 Louisville in the third round. The Rams rebound exceptionally well. The Tigers have the speed and ability to break a press with Phil Pressey. Louisville should advance, but either one of these teams could pose problems for the Cards."
