Louisville again seeks rebound on the road

No. 15 Louisville (13-3) at St Johns (8-6) 9:00 pm EST

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- About the only place No. 15 Louisville looks comfortable of late is on the road. It will try to keep that trend going for the moment being when it visits St. John's on Tuesday for a Big East Conference matchup.

The Cardinals, who are expected to be without leading scorer Taquan Dean, have lost their first two Big East home games - both to ranked opponents - and have one league win on the road, a triumph at Providence on January 7.

Before an anticipated homestand against Connecticut and Cincinnati begins this weekend, Louisville will try to recover from Sunday's 61-57 loss to No. 10 Pittsburgh.

The Cardinals hit their first seven 3-pointers, but just one of their next seven. Dean returned from a one-game layoff with an ankle injury to score three points in just 12 minutes.

If Dean is unable to go, Louisville again will look to freshman Terrence Williams, who scored a season-high 25 points and had four steals in Saturday's setback.

The Red Storm, who are beginning a stretch of four straight games against currently ranked teams, shook off an 0-2 start in league play to post a 68-49 rout of South Florida on Saturday.

Anthony Mason Jr. and Eugene Lawrence scored 13 points apiece as St. John's snapped a 25-game road losing streak.

The Cardinals own a 4-2 lead in the all-time series, posting a 73-67 victory in the last meeting between the teams January 6, 1998.
