Georgetown, Ky - It's another David versus Goliath matchup when the Georgetown College Tigers suit up against the University of Louisville Cardinals on Saturday, November 1 at 1:30 p.m.

This is the third consecutive trip to Freedom Hall for the Tigers, where they nearly pulled off a shocking upset just two seasons ago in a 94-92 loss to the Cardinals. Last year's game featured a solid first half effort from the Tigers before the Cardinals found their stride in the second half and the Tigers were unable to maintain the pace and depth of Louisville's squad. The loss did not appear to phase the Tigers, as they then went on to have an undefeated regular season which culminated in an appearance in the NAIA's Fab Four and finished 35-1 on the year.

This year Coach Happy Osborne has his Tigers ready to go again and they will definitely be looking to give Pitino's Cards all they have. "Louisville is very, very good," said Georgetown head coach Happy Osborne. "They are big and physical and could be the best team Pitino has coached." Despite Louisville's credentials, Osborne noted the tenacity of this Georgetown team. "We will give it our best shot; we'll give them all we've got."

Tipoff for the game is set for 1:30 P.M on Saturday. Tickets are still available at Georgetown College's campus bookstore for $30 each as part of the visiting team allotment. You can phone your order to 502-863-8134, charge to your credit card and pick tickets up at Freedom Hall will-call. All other tickets are sold out.

If you are unable to make it to Louisville be sure to tune into 93.7 WRVG for the Georgetown College Student Radio broadcast or listen to the streaming audio at http://wrvg.georgetowncollege.edu. The game will also air live on ABC-affiliate WHAS-TV in Louisville.
