LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- Coach Larry Eustachy's initial comments on the University of Louisville basketball team, after his Colorado State team beat Missouri 84-72 to advance to Saturday's 5:15 p.m. NCAA Tournament matchup against the Cardinals:
"I followed Louisville for years. Their athletic director an I were high school teammates on several teams, Tom Jurich, and I've got a ton of respect for their coach. Apparently they're the best team in the country. They do the best job in getting teams to turn it over, and we had 14 turnovers (against Missouri) and so we're going to really take care of the ball and handle their different types of full-court pressure.
"We might as well go on home like we hadn't planned on if we don't do it. I couldn't tell you who their best player is. I couldn't name a player on the team. But I do know that I've heard how they play and how they press and how they pressure, and we're going to have to handle that."
