Doug Gottlieb: Louisville is overrated
If Louisville needed any motivation entering the NCAA Tournament, they certainly received it from Doug Gottlieb.
When it was revealed on CBS’ selection show that the Cardinals received a No. 4 seed in the tourney, Gottlieb questioned whether they deserved that high of a seeding.
“I think Louisville is overseeded here, guys,” Gottlieb said. “They’re not the same since they lost Chris Jones for the year. They’re living a little bit on reputation.”
As usual, Gottlieb speaks the truth. Louisville is 24-8 but has gone 3-3 in games without Jones, who was dismissed over multiple issues, including sexual assault allegations.
Louisville will face UC Irvine in Seattle on Friday in their first-round game.
