Lexington, Ky. – Colorado State spent Friday preparing to take on the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, the Louisville Cardinals.
After returning back to the hotel early into Friday morning the Rams were given time to catch up on sleep before having a team lunch at a nearby Buffalo Wild Wings.
After lunch the team had a meeting for half an hour and then loaded up on the bus to go to Rupp Arena for a practice and half hour media session.
The media used every second of their allotted time with the coach and student-athletes as questions about Louisville, mainly the play of their guards and the defensive pressure the Cardinals force on opponents, controlled the press conference.
“Our formula is the same for us every single game. We're not changing anything,” Green said. “I think what we need to do is we got to rebound. That's what we've preached from day one. So I think that for us to do the same thing that we've done every single game and aim to do every single game. We definitely can't turn the ball over and let them get easy buckets in transition. Hang the pressure and just being aggressive, attack, and going and getting the missed shots will be huge. For us, it's the same game plan we've had for the majority of the year. We have to do it the best we've done so far.”
In the practice following the media session, CSU worked on playing against the pressure that they will face Saturday night.
CSU will take on Louisville Saturday at 3:15 MT. Fans can watch the game nationally on CBS.
