Big Monday: MU travels to Louisville

The Marquette Golden Eagles look to extend their modest, but oh so encouraging, two game win streak on Monday night when they travel to Louisville. Marquette (15-4, 2-2) must contend with a resurgent Louisville club that is looking to build off of back-to-back wins -- the first time the Cards have accomplished that in Big East play.

Louisville blasted Providence over the weekend, and has shown great improvement since moving to a near four-guard lineup recently. The Cardinals are now 12-5 overall and 2-1 in the Big East.

Monday's game can be seen on ESPN at 6pm CST -- part of the network's Big Monday lineup.
