Louisville will be without second-leading scorer for ACC opener

That could really the Cards.

No. 18 Louisville (11-2) will have to face its first ACC opponent this season without the help of guard Trey Lewis. He has a "bad" ankle sprain according to coach Rick Pitino and the options to replace him are not great. "We are behind the 8-ball with no backup point," Pitino wrote. "We will see with practice what to do. Levitch is option one. Ryan off redshirt option two. There is no foreseeable third option."

Lewis had been kept out of practice for much of the week because of heel issues as well. Lewis is the second-leading scorer on the team averaging 14.7 points, 2.6 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game.
