At 9-1 with its lone loss to rival Kentucky (69-64), Louisville is averaging 7,622 and has drawn crowds of 8,099 for LSU and 10,045 for Florida State. Lappe expects more than 10,000 on Saturday to show up and shower the Buffs with holiday warmth – or something to that effect. “It’s going to be a good environment. They’ll have a lot of fans . . . it’s going to be loud, it’s going to be fun,” she said. Whatever else it’s going to be, well, that’s up to the Buffs. I look forward to seeing crowds in the Keg like that for our big WBB games some day.

The Buffaloes were ranked No. 11 in both polls for that game. ABOUT THE BUFFALOES: Colorado improved to 9-0 by defeating instate rival University of Denver, 83-61, on Dec. 12.

The Cardinals’ lone loss of the season came on the road, a 69-64 decision at then-No. 7 ranked Kentucky where Louisville was ranked No. 3 by the coaches at the time and No. 4 by the AP. Since that setback, all the Cardinals have done is average a blistering 100.8 points in four wins. Overall Louisville is averaging 90.5 points per game on 51 percent shooting.
